If you cant find the leak then ost likely it will be the master cylinder, thats the part that holds the fluid check behind it as sometimes the fluid can run down and into the car meaning you dont see the leak out side, look for any dampend areas as this fliud evaporates quite quickly so again you may not see the leak.

Let me know if you have more info and I will see if I can help

2007 Sierra, Loss of Brake fluid with no visible leaks.

if you have a hydraulic clutch ( no transmission offered) check the slave cylinder for leaks ( some cars use the brake master cylinder as a reservoir for the hydraulic clutch)
check the brake booster to master cylinder mounting for leaks or the rear seal of the master cylinder may be faulty allowing fluid to pass to the booster chamber
check for a leak under pressure at the rear flexible rubber hose from the body on

No brake pedal

check the fluid level in the reservoir. bleed out the brakes starting at the longest line first. There may be a leak in the booster that is allowing the brake fluid to be sucked through to the inlet manifold and that is why no visible leaks. heck for fluid running down the inside of the fire wall and under the mat.

Check the fluid level in the brake resivior. It sounds like you have a leak. Check all the brakes and look for ruptured lines or a leaking caliper. If no leaks at the wheels and along the brake lines the issue would be the master cylinder or hydo boost unit.

1999 tahoe.right front brake caliper slow to release.

Besides changing the caliper did you by chance chg. the break hose going to it, there a 2-way hose fluid goes to caliper and returns thru same hose, and they have been known to cause what you have just discribed.

bleed the brakes and see if it goes away.

if you add fluid as your brakes wore down when they compressed the calipers in the fluid pushes back into the reservoir causing it to overfill.
is it leaking out the top?or from where the lines connect? do they feel spongy?your breaks shouldn't grab per say you have anti lock brakes so you should get a pulsation when you hit them hard. if you have a leak in the reservoir you could have sucked in some air.causing a loss of hydraulic pressure.have you noticed your fluid level drop significantly? hope i helped you figure it out or gave you some kinda clue.
