Did you check the master cylinder inside the car? Usually that is where it leaks, not the engine compartment. You will have to pull back the carpet a bit and will need a good light to check for dampness there.

    Very unusual for an 07 to be leaking brake fluid, or anything-what is your mileage?

  • Curt Downs Dec 07, 2009

    Have you checked all around the wheels, no drips on the ground after parking overnight?

Hydraulic clutch in a 2001 nissan altima gxe 5 speed manual


Open the hood and look for the clutch master cylinder.
It is smaller than the brake master cylinder, but should be very near it.
The clutch master cylinder is about half the size of the brake master cylinder.
Take the lid off and see if it is full.
If it is empty, the likely problem is the slave cylinder (which is mounted on the transmission at the other end of the brake fluid line), has failed and needs to be replaced.
It will likely not do any good to fill the clutch master cylinder, as you will trap air in the line.
The slave cylinder will need to be replaced, and the line bled to get the air out.
Be blessed.

What are the possible solutions if my 1994 Nissan altima has a brand new clutch kit and everything seems to work good even the transmission but the car just want engage?


have you checked the fluid in the clutch master cylinder? look under the hood on the drivers side, on the firewall. looks like a brake master cylinder,takes regular brake fluid. if low,top it off with brake fluid and keep pumping it[the clutch pedal] until it works right. you may also have a bad clutch slave cylinder[located on the side of your transmission] it may be bad. it's not uncommon for it to go bad at any time. it's called a slave cylinder,or hydraullic clutch cylinder. you can purchase it at most auto parts stores,such as auto zone or advance auto parts. wish you the very best of luck,thank you for choosing fixya.com

I just bought a nisson altima 2005 the owner advised me I need the brake fluid flushed before winter... Is this normal


Brake fluid absorbs moisture, and this can rust the insides of the brake system. The moisture was not that big of deal 10 years ago, but on ABS brake systems of today, the rust and other debris that accumulates in the fluid can do lots of internal damage, and can be very costly. Brake fluid can also break down over time from excess heat that is created from within the brake system.
Is recommend flushing the brake fluid system about every 30,000 miles, or at 30K, 60K and 90k tune up. It cost about $90, but you can do it by yourself. To do this flush, open the brake lines located at each wheel and allow the brake fluid from the brake master cylinder to "bleed by gravity", as continue to feed new fluid to the master cylinder until the fluid runs clear at all wheels.The discharge has to be collected in 16OZ plastic bottle via a clear vinyl hose from the bleeding nipple to the bottle. It is a good idea to replace all 4 nipples with new one. They are cheap and avoid problems in long run. Make sure to use at least DOT 4 brake fluid. Make sure to use a sealed bottle. The life of brake fluid in an open bottle is one week.

Brakes went out and saw fluid leaking out of back left tire area


You have a bad brake cylinder or brake line. Do not drive the car for obvious reasons. If you can jack up the car and support it to safely look at that area, you can determine if it is a rusted or damaged brake line, or if not, pull the wheel off and check for fluid leakage at the wheel cylinder/or caliper.

The leak may be in the brake lines or near the breaks itself. I would recommend that the car be brought to the shop if you do not see any leaks on the items I have mentioned to avoid accidents.
