Low brake fluid level. Refilled and again low level. Do I need a brake master cylinder?


Check for external brake fluid leaks on brake master, on all wheel brake cylinders/calipers. Check also for leakes under the vehicle for possible brake hose and pipe leaks.

good chance you have a leak in your break line. easy way to check is have someone press break while you look under the car. best position is just behind wheel look for fluid to spray out you will see a break line from the axel area to your wheel gl

Clutch goes all the way to the floor without resitance on my daughters 2004 sunfire. there is fluid on the ground and when I checked fluid level it appeared to be empty


Examine carefully to locate exact point of leak. Could be the hydraulic line, a connection between line & slave cylinder or master cylinder, or a bad slave cylinder. Once you identify the point of leak, I can help you with repair info if needed.

Brakes are hard at first then the pedal slowly goes to the floor.


You need a new master cylinder. I'm assuming that you aren't losing brake fluid from a leak somewhere.

As the master cylinder wears out it's internal seals allow fluid to leak past the pistons. None actually leaks out of the brake system so you don't see the leakage on the ground under the car and the brake fluid level remains constant.

Replacing the master cylinder is not hard from a technical standpoint but it is a job you'll want a service manual's help with just so you know the proper steps to take. A small, hand operated, vacuum pump is a godsend when you get to the part of bleeding the brakes and this is a good time to flush the brake lines anyway. Proper tools are a must, get a proper line wrench to avoid damaging the brake lines when you remove them from the master, and be careful when reinstalling the lines that you don't start them crooked and cross thread the line fittings.

A good quality rebuilt master cylinder will do the job, or you can spring for the new factory part. Back in the day we used to rebuild them but finding a rebuild kit is impossible these days.

Brake fluid leaking alot and now noticed fluid from rear tires


if your car has rear drum then the wheel cylinders could be leaking and in need of replacement. If it has rear disc brakes then it could be leaking fluid where the brake hose goes into the caliper or the brake hose my be worn or have a hole in it. Or it could be a a brake line. You should have it checked because you don't want air getting into the braking system.
