Is this to top up or to replace. if you do not have a leak then a top up is all waht is required which you can do into the fluid fill up inlet near the master servo. but if you are doing a full brake check up then the wheel cylinder buckets , the calipers, pads and the master cylinder is serviced then the whole fluid canbe drained out and replaced.

2001 Dodge van 3500 losing brake fluid but can't tell where


Most likely you have a cylinder in the rear leaking, and it's just slinging it off as you go. Your van should have front disc brakes and rear drum. Cylinders are normally $10 to $20 each. Wouldn't hurt to inspect both

I got a big problem with the brakes on my 82 van dura when im cruzing down the road my brakes some times start to lock up i have to pull over and let them cool off before they'll release. new calipers


That may be your TMC seals are swollen. This may happen because of wrong brake fluid uses or conatamination.

Please replace TMC and drain old brake fluid, flush with new one and then fill new brake fluid which is recomended by your car company.

I have a 1995 e250 extended passenger van, my brakes went out and I found the source. There are three lines going into a box under the van, what is that box for and how do I replace the rusted line?


The box is just to distribute the fluid to all the brakes. Replacing lines means buying new ones and fitting them in the same positions. the brakes will then need bleeding. Maybe a job for the shop to be safe. What happened to the brakes, did they run out of fluid, if so you have a leak somewhere. Check all the wheels to see if any of the brake cylinder are leaking.

Van got hit on right side brakes were new after being hit van would not stop countinued to roll down hill until i turned van now van has no brake system now


Sounds like a broken brake line. Look for brake fluid around the area of the impact or check the master cylinder for fluid to confirm this.

Ford van brakes go "soft"


The master cylinder probably needs new seals and the brakes need bleeding. First try replacing the brake fluid and doing a good bleed. If that does not solve the problem, go for the master cylinder.

The front/driver's side of my van is leaking brake fluid very fast.


sounds like a broken brake line or a brake master cylinder problem. the master cylinder has a resevoir ontop were you add brake fluid. Does your brake pedal feel spongy? if so sounds like your master cylinder needs to be replaced.

My brake fluid resevour empied quickly. I did not notice until my brakes hit the floor. I filled the resevour but didn't bleed the brakes. How easy is the process, what tools do I need? I've bleed brakes...


Do not drive this car!!! And do not attempt to bleed the brakes on this car!!!!!
There is a LEAK in the Hydraulic system- that`s why the pedal went to the floor.
Most probable cause is rusted / weak brake lines under beneath the car. Once these lines leak, you have to replace them. This is my guess taking into consideration the age of your car. Other possible causes could other Hydraulic components. Please have your van towed to your repair shop for further inspection and an estimate. If you have CAA or other towing memberships, this will be the right time to tow your van. Adding more fluid or bleeding the brakes will NOT help you here. Hydraulic pressure is lost and repairs must be done to bring back your brake pedal..
Be safe to yourself and other`s -TOW your van....

I have no breaks on my van peddel goes down to floor


Did you check the brake fluid level? if its low, you may have a broken brake line. look for a wet area under the van. Most likely you have rusted brake lines and need them all replaced. expensive.

I need some liquid to stop my van making noises


It's not the transmission, because you wouldn't see the space that the transmission fluid fills, and it's doubtful that it's the brake fluid, the brakes will act up all the time (stop lights, etc) if that were the case, so it must be the powersteering fluid. If your car is sort of a pain to steer around corners, the slower you go, the harder it is to move the wheel to turn, and you hear a sort of whiney noise when you get into a deep turn, or are turning slowly, that would for sure be powersteering.

Van makes sound when brakes appled and turning Is


I'm not sure of what sound it could be making. However, keeping it simple and attempting to answer the question as asked: Check the power steering fluid first. If it's low, add power steering fluid approved for your vehicle to the proper level. Never use transmission fluid as it aerates (like shaking a bottle of dish detergent) and doesn't provide the proper protection. Your van is equipped with a filter in the power steering system.

If the power steering reservoir is at an appropriate level. I would have the front brakes inspected, and/or the Constant Velocity joints inspected, depending the type of noise.
