Question about 1998 Chevrolet Cavalier
If you're not squeamish you can always "taste" it lol, but i wouldn't recomend it.
Soaking up the fluid with a WHITE napkin will show you its true color and help you identify the fluid much easier.
Exactly where it's leaking from can be misleading. Often times dripping fluids will flow down hoses, engine casing, and other parts and simply drip where they reach the lowest point along the way. So don't rely just on that. Grab a flashlight and take a overhead and under the car look to see if you can spot where the fluid is originating from.

Open the hood of your 1998 Chevy Malibu and locate the brake fluid reservoir. On a 1998 Malibu, it's located on the driver's side closest to the front windshield. Open the reservoir tank and place the cap in a safe place where it won't get lost. Fill it to the fill line and not above then replace the cap and your done. Now you need to figure out where the brake fluid is going since this is a closed system and if it is low then your brakes are getting worn and more fluid is accumulating in the lines due to more travel of the brake cyclinders or you have a leak. The master cylinder should look like this picture, if you find this helpful, a vote with the thumbs up would be appreciated
