This is what i just found on the internet about this.

That is an indication the slave cylinder is leaking. You would have to remove the drum and replace the slave cylinder, perform bleeding of system to rectify.

Always perform repairs for both sides even though only one side is leaking now. It would fail sooner or later if not repaired now.

SOURCE: How do I check the clutch fluid to a 1999 Mercury Cougar 4cyl

The brake master cylinder reservoir has a separate chamber and is used to supply the hydraulic clutch system. So make sure master cylinder reservoir is full.

What makes a 1999 mercury cougar pul to one side or the other when brakes are engaged. It is NOT the callipers. They have been replaced


bad wheel bearing, worn strut mount or ball joint can do this. also a bad master cylinder, broken/leaking brake line, contaminated brake fluid, bad porportional valve, or unevenly worn rotors can all cause this.
