Hello, my name is Ben. Since the brake fluid reservoir is located outside of the cabin area and mounted with a flexible coupling, I doubt that is the culprit of your rattle. What kind of repair was done on your truck? That info might help me to determine the source of the rattle.

Leaking brake fluid from right front wheel 1995 honda passport


Sounds like from what you describe it's a leaking break caliper. The best thing to do is get a rebuilt one. It's best to replace them in pairs. Also replace or clean the brake pads thoroughly!

I need to top up the power stering fluid and need to know what tipe to use 1988 chevy silverado C3500 454 The power steering looks like it is incorperated into the brake booster


power steering is at the front of the engine and runs on the belt. The reservoir cap looks like this:
73b4b95.jpg To top off steering fluid, use standard steering fluid.

The reservoir in front of the brake booster is the brake master cylinder reservoir. To refill, use standard brake fluid. If it the truck is using brake fluid, check for leaks at the back of the master cylinder and at all wheels.

Please let us know if you have more questions.

How to bleed brakes on 2002 toyota sienna


Here is the procedure from the service manual. I would add just one thing. Do each wheel in this order

  1. right rear wheel
  2. left rear wheel
  3. right front wheel
  4. left front wheel
BLEEDING

HINT: If any work is done on the brake system or if air in the brake lines is suspected, bleed the air from the system.

NOTICE: Do not let brake fluid remain on a painted surface. Wash it off immediately.


a)FILL BRAKE RESERVOIR WITH BRAKE FLUID Fluid:SAE J1703 or FMVSS No. 116 DOT3

b)BLEED MASTER CYLINDER HINT: If the master cylinder has been disassembled or if the reservoir becomes empty, bleed the air from the master cylinder.

c)Disconnect the brake lines from the master cylinder. SST 09023-00100 Slowly depress the brake pedal and hold it.

Block off the outlet plug with your finger and release the brake pedal.
Repeat (b) and (c) 3 or 4 times.


BLEED BRAKE LINE

1. Connect the vinyl tube to the caliper or wheel cylinder bleeder plug.
2. Depress the brake pedal several times, then loosen the bleeder plug with the pedal held down.
3. At the point when fluid stops coming out, tighten the bleeder plug, then release the brake pedal. Torque: (Bleeder plug) Front brake caliper
: 8.3 Nm (85 kgf-cm, 74 inch lbs.) Rear wheel cylinder: 8.5 Nm (87 kgf-cm, 75 inch lbs.)
4. Repeat (b) and (c) until all the air in the fluid has been bled out.
5. Repeat the above procedure to bleed the air out of the brake line for each wheel.

CHECK FLUID LEVEL IN RESERVOIR Check the fluid level and add fluid if necessary. Fluid: SAE J1703 or FMVSS No. 116 DOT3

The brake warning light in the IP is always on in my 1999 Chevy Silverado is always on. Any ideas what the concern might be?


Hi:
Your vehicle has a dual brake system, and the light usually indicates that one system has failed. First thing to check is your brake fluid level. If the front or back of the reservoir is low or empty, you have a brake system leak. check the insides of all 4 wheels to look for possible fluid leakage, as well as any other areas under your vehicle where brake lines run. My truck had a rear brake line rust thru, and it caused the same problem.

Good luck finding the problem!

2001 chevy silverado 2500hd duramax 4wd p0700 code came up after changing rotors and pads on front


You may have disconnected / or moved a broken wire to the ABS wheel sensor during the brake job. Also taking the brake fluid cap off and checking the fluid level, and just reseating the cap may turn off the code. Check these things first, check the wires to the wheel sensors check the fluid in the reservoir, reservoir top fit, and any wires / plugs at the brake ABS master cylinder. If all else fails have some one read the code.

How to change front brake pads on a 97 landrover discovery


Remove the road wheels, clean the exterior of the calipers. Remove the split pin from the retaining pins on either side and then remove the pad retaining pins and anti rattle springs. Remove the brake pads and clean exposed parts of pistons using new brake fluid. Wipe away excess with a lint free cloth. Using a piston clamp, press each piston back into its bore ensuring that the displaced brake fluid does not overflow from reservoir.
Refit the new brake pads, retaining pins and anti-rattle springs, using new split pins to secure them. Apply the service brake pedal several time to locate pads. Check fluid reservoir and top up if necessary using correct grade of fluid.

BRAKES ON FRONT 2002 PROTEGE 5 MAZDA


When I change my front brakes, I use a "C" clamp to slowly push the piston back in. (You can get them for a few dollars at Wal-Mart, etc.) Make sure you open the brake fluid reservoir while compressing them, as the fluid level will rise; but don't leave the reservoir open too long, as brake fluid will absorb water from the air.
For the parking brake, I'm not sure. I think the parking brake often works off of the rear brakes, so changing the pads should have helped there. Maybe air in the lines? Do you have any trouble with "soft" or "mushy" brakes when you use them? If so, you might want to bleed the system, to get any air out - it can be dangerous.
