Into the brake fluid reservoir in the engine bay

The reservoir is normally situted on top of or near the large drumlike vacuum brake servo unit

It is easy to spot as it is either bolted directly onto the servo or is linked to it with steel pipes.

When you screw the top off the filler it should have an oily residue inside it even if the levels have dropped

2000 Lincoln ls where do you put break fluid in


The brake fluid goes in the brake master cylinder. (Fluid Reservoir)

There are pictures on pages 197 and 198 in the Owner's Manual (depending on which engine you have) they will show you exactly where this reservoir is located.

If you do not have an Owner's Manual, you can download a FREE PDF version: click HERE.

Also note that you should NEVER have to add brake fluid to your car. If the fluid level is low, then there is a leak in the system that MUST be diagnosed and repaired IMMEDIATELY! Failure to immediately repair a fluid leak in a brake hydraulic system can lead to serious personal injury, property damage, or DEATH!

Where do i put brake fluid ?


The brake fluid is to be filled in the brake fluid reservoir.The brake fluid reservoir is fitted on the master cylinder with separate chambers for the primary and secondary circuits.
In cars with a manual gearbox, the brake fluid reservoir serves as the reservoir for brake fluid used in clutch system. A brake fluid level switch is mounted on the brake fluid reservoir. The Level switch contains a float magnet which affects a reed element that closes an electric circuit and warns the driver regarding the condition.The master brake cylinder, which is mounted on the brake servo unit, contains a secondary
and primary piston.

Where do you put the brake fluid in the engine


You never put brake fluid in the engine, brake fluid only goes in the brake master cylinder, which is on the drivers side under the hood, close to the fire wall, will have a small resivor.

Where do you put the brake fluid on this car? Because, my car is making a grinding sound when I put my foot on the brake.


The grinding noise probably means you need to put new brakes on. If you fill the brake fluid reservoir, and then change the brakes, the new fluid will run out anyways, because the new brakes will have to be put in, and the fluid will run out.
