This is brake fluid? There will be a reservoir such as

Note the big round vacuum booster behind it. You don't need that turkey baster thing he is using, just to check and top up. There will be a line on the side marked "Max", so just fill up to there from a container clearly marked "Brake Fluid". Nothing else is OK.

My sons Clutch would not engage or for that matter it would not do anything


You didn't use DOT5 brake fluid did you. DOT5 brake will swell some types of rubber and aerate the fluid which becomes compressible.

How do I check the oil level in slave cylinder for the clutch on 2006 chevy cobalt


First off, clutch hydraulics use ONLY dot 3/4 brake fluid, if you used any kind of petroleum product you have ruined the clutch master cylinder and clutch slave/actuator(GM's term)cylinder. The level is on the side of the reservoir. If you had to add fluid, you have a leak in the system, probably the slave cylinder first. A master cylinder leak would have fluid on the inside of the firewall, where the master cylinder is mounted(leaking at the back). You bleed clutch hydraulics as you would with brakes.

1988 LeBaron. Intermittent brake failure.


Does the pedal sometimes go to the floor, with no stopping power? That is a sign of a bad brake master cylinder whose internal seals have failed, so no hydraulic power when brakes are pressed. Need to have it checked. It will only get worse until brakes fail completely.
Be sure and check the brake fluid level in the fluid reservoir. If low, check for leaks under the car. System is sealed, so no fluid should need periodically added.

How to adjust clutch for 1998 saturn sc2


HYDRAULIC SYSTEM BLEEDING The clutch hydraulic assembly has been filled with fluid and bled of air at the factory. Do not attempt to bleed the hydraulic system. While the unit does not require periodic checking, it must be serviced, when necessary, as a complete assembly. The system is full when the reservoir is half full. Only DOT 3 brake fluid should be added to the system. If the fluid level drops, inspect the system, including the slave cylinder, for leakage. A slight wetting of the slave cylinder surface is normal. Fill the clutch master cylinder reservoir with brake fluid. Be careful not to spill brake fluid on the painted surface of the vehicle.

I have an 1995 eurovan camper it appears when the temperature gets to about 3/4 on gauge my transmission kicks out stops working i pull to side of road turn van off let cool down to about 1/2 on gage and...


check your fluid levels first, and if its getting over 1/2 on your gauge you have cooling problems, check fluid levels, your transmission lines run through a part of the radiator in order to cool them, so you need to resolve the cooling problems

I came back from a 4 day trip and when I started the hybrid, I had no power steering or power brake assist.


Check your power steering fluid level. The power brakes are hydraulic assist and get hydraulic pressure from the power steering pump. If the fluid level is good you may have a bad pump. If the fluid level is low fill it up and find the leak .

Audi A4 1.9 TDI power steering oil type and capacity


Power steering fluid level checking:
- vehicle stationary
- front wheels in straight ahead position
- engine at normal operating temperature
- remove cap with dipstick from expansion tank and wipe off
- reinstall cap with dipstick and remove again
- fluid level between "min" and "max" markings
- top off with G 002 000 hydraulic oil if necessary
Power steering system capacity is around 1 liter, but it is not necessary to periodic change the hydraulic oil!
If oil level has dropped to the "min" marking, check power steering system, including hoses and lines.
It is not enough simply to top off the hydraulic oil !!!

Where do I check the transmission fluid on a 1997 Hyundai excel


Remove Transmission Fluid Level Check
Locate and remove the transmission fluid level checker, in most cars and trucks this is where the fluid is checked and added.
1687565.jpg
Insert fluid funnel and add transmission fluid until the proper amount of fluid level is reached. Let engine warm and recheck fluid level, add fluid as needed. Do not over fill the transmission, it could foam the fluid and cause low fluid pressure causing premature transmission failure. recheck transmission for leaks and recheck fluid level in a couple of days.

DIAGNOSIS AND TEST FLUID LEVEL AND CONDITION
1. Park the vehicle on a level surface. 2. Before removing the dipstick, wipe all dirt from the area around the dipstick. 3. With the selector lever in "P" (Park) and the parking brake applied, start the engine. 4. The engine should be running at idle speed and the fluid should be at normal operating temperature [80-90°C (176-194°F)]. 5. Move the selector lever to every position to fill the torque converter and hydraulic circuit with fluid, then place the lever in the "N" (Neutral) position. This operation checks that fluid level check is accurate. 6. Check if the fluid level is in the "HOT" range shown on the dipstick. If the fluid is low, add automatic transaxle fluid until the level reaches the "HOT" range.
