Open hood. Look for semi clear container, Marked Brake Fluid. It usually has a black rubber top. On the side of the container, it will show Fluid level MAX" MIN" get a rag, as brake fluid will remove your Paint" remove cap, slowly fill to Max level. if you spill any. Replace cap, & flush the area with water. this will prevent paint damage. The Type of Fluid will be shown on the cap, its usually Dot 3. And usually cost less than $2 for 12oz. and most times that will last you a LONNNNNNg time. seal tightly & keep away from water, as brake fluid will absorb water & become contaminated

Do you have a broken or busted clutch line? If the clutch is just hitting the floor, then I'd check for leaks along the line for your clutch. Make sure you go over the master cylinder well.

Now if there is no leaks anywhere, and you're not loosing any fluid, it would sound as if something let go in the clutch assembly whether it be internal, or even the hydraulic parts. Definitely check for a leak.

SOURCE: Brake pedal goes down to floor. Putting brake fluid doesn't solve problem. Vehicle must coast to a complete stop.

First look for obvious leaks under the vehicle, especially the inside area of each wheel... If you see fluid, you have either a blown cylinder seal or a bad line (check the rubber hoses to the front and back brakes too) Repair the offending part and bleed the air out of the system... (remember to clean pads or shoes if they have fluid on them)... If you see no hint of leakage anywhere, then suspect the master cylinder... if you remove the master cylinder, check and make sure that it didn't leak fluid into the brake booster diaphragm (Brake fluid will destroy the booster)... as in any repair when you open the system (lose fluid), you will need to bleed out the air to restore function... hope this helps...;-)

Soft breaks on fiesta finesse when i put foot on break it went to floor....then drove a bit more and it has hardened up a bit...have to drive car next couple of days for work and as its easter don't know...

Yes you should add some brake fluid now before you drive anymore. They might have to be bleed if you got air in the lines from lack of fluid.

The 12 volt battery(LUCAS 065/3) on my FORD FIESTA 1100cc is 4 years old, in that time i have only driven 1,600 miles as my journeys are usually very local. I make sure i use the car twice a week to keep...

Running so few miles has accelerated the aging of the battery - the battery never had a chance to fully recharge in such small trips -  so now you have to replace it a year sooner than usual.
Just replace it.

Ford fiesta power loss

You need to check for codes to begin with. If no codes then we can start guessing. A code is pretty strait forward. Without a code, hands on will be the only way to diagnose this issue.
