Where do you put the brake fluid in a 1998 Chevy malilbu


The brake fluid goes in a reservoir on top of the master cyclinder inside the firewall under the hood.

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

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!

My car has been sitting up for five years. Recently, I had the car serviced. The brakes pedal is very low. I was told that I needed to pump my brakes in to get them to come up. I think I may need some...


The master cylinder reservoir should be close to the firewall (at the rear of the engine compartment). Brake fluid will not normally just disappear when a vehicle sits though, and you should have pedal pressure even with low fluid. Chances are that the master cylinder, or a wheel cylinder, is leaking and needs to be replaced.

I need to know where to put the brake fluid


In the brake master cylinder resevoir located under the hood directly over your steering shaft. You should see a rectangular shaped plastic cap. If you need to add brake fluid you need to have your brake system checked. You should never have to add brake fluid.

Location of the brake fluid input


the brake fluid resivoir is above the master cylinder on the firewall. so on the left side near the windshield. the power steering resivoir is closer to the front end and is distinguished by not being connected to the master cylinder..

Brakes how do i add brake fluid to a 2005 dodge caravan?


Hi, the brake fluid goes under the bonnet the bottle will be located at the top of the engine and it will be either side of the engine it should have a warning label on it tellin you to put only brake fluid in.
Make sure you get the right one.
If you need further assistance then give me a shout back ok and ill be glad to help.

The filler bottle should have either a clear bottle where you can see the fluid level and the top up mark or if its a black on then it will have a stick attatched to the under side of the filler cap with marks on it telling you how much to top up.
Just top it up with small amounts at a time so you dont over fill.
If you get brake fluid on any paint work it will fetch the paint off the same as paint stripper so use some rag to wipe up any spillage

Where to put brake fluid


when you open the hood it will be on your right side near the windshield. you will need a long funnel because of the way it is tucked under the wiper blades. If you have to add brake fluid then you either have a leak or your brakes are so low that the fluid has dropped enough to make the light come on the dashboard. Have it checked out by an experienced person.
