Both front brakes are leaking brake fluid/Lexus es 300 1993

I own a lexus es 300. both front brakes are leaking (****) brake fluid. I had a mechanic check it out today, he said it was the brake hose/line. by the time I got home, the drivers side had started doing the same thing. The mechanic said that both lines had gone bad. True?? Could it be an evenbigger problem since they both started (****) within a few days apart? Hope not!?

Probably not. you won't know though till it is taken apart. the worst i think is the calipers are frozen. but most likely you can swap the hoses out and it will be fine. good luck and if you have any more question please ask

Rear brake caliper won't slide across to allow movement to put in new pads. One side no worries other no way? Any ideas. Lexus es 300 2005!

From experience brakes can get hot if they are old and worn out. Maybe there was a blockage when the brake fluid was released. I had to replace all brake lines once on a vehicle because the fluid had gone past its used by and was contaminated with the moisture from the air.
Maybe degreasing and then a product like RP7 or WD40 could help. Some vehicles its possible to take the brakes off and soak them in a degreaser and recondition them.

Where do you check the level of your brake fluid? brake light is on.

Open the hood - It will be mounted to the power brake booster - a large round thing mounted to the firewall on the driver's side. There will be a removeable cap that should have some information on it. If it says use D.O.T. 3 brake fluid that is what you ask for. You may want to have your brakes inspected at one of the shops that offers the service free. The reason brake fluid normally goes down is because of brake pad wear but a leak in the system could cause it.

Need to replace front disk brakes on my 2002 Lexus Es 300. Do I have to remove the brake line to accomplish this? And what kind of brake fluid should I use? Thanks Robert D in L.A.

No you don't have to remove any lines to replace brake pads. There will be a sticker on top of your fluid reservoir that says what DOT number fluid you need. It could also be stamped into it, or printed directly on it, it's different with different car companies. The higher the number the better the fluid. But use whatever it says because you don't want to mix fluid types, that's always a bad idea.

Your car has front disc brakes, the disc's are running out of true, as u apply the brake this causes the steering wheel to shake, the higher the speed the more u feel this, the solution is to have the front brake disc's machined true again on a brake lathe or if they are to thin replace them.

Check the brake fluid in the reservoir first. As brakes wear, the level goes down. If the pads are worn far enough, the light may come on while driving. If the brakes haven't been replaced recently, have them checked for wear also.
