Look in that area when brakes are pushed, sounds like the brake line has a hole in it, and needs replaced or repaired. good-luck!!

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.

Brake fluid leaking rear drivers side1997 cavalier


The leak could be due to a leaking brake line in the rear or a leaking brake cylinder. Have the car inspected for the leak by a reputable garage. The car will need to be towed, since it has no brakes.
If you do your own work, refill the master cylinder. Have someone depress the brake peddle while you look under the car for the leak.

Where is the clutch auto adjustment located at on a 98 manual Volkswagen jetta?


you most likely have a hydraulic clutch, which the clutch master cylinder is located on the firewall on the driverside close to your drivers side windsheild.it takes brake fluid to fill dot brake fluid will fill it properly. however if your slave cylinder on the transmission is leaking,this will require a replacement of the clutch slave cylinder. look for leakage under passenger side,,just under or below passenger side seat onto ground. recommend if you replace the clutch slave cylinder,you also replace clutch master cylinder located on the drivers side firewall at wind sheild.look under the car while someone pumps the clutch in and out,if you see brake fluid leaking under car onto ground or inside onto carpet at brake pedal,you have a bad clutch master cylinder. recommend you replace both slave cylinder and clutch master cylinder. this will save you lots of time and headaches. thank you for choosing fixya.com

Oil leak in driver side rear wheel well for 2005 crown vic. drips down over top of tire and puddles under it.


Hi Don:
Have you checked to see if it's brake fluid?
Is it possible that the slave cylinder is leaking and the fluid is coming ot from the brakes? I can't think of any oil source in that area.

My brakes are going to the floor


Hi, the likely cause is a leak that has used all the fluid in the reservoir and drawn air into the system. You will need to find the leak, repair it, and then bleed the whole system of air. Likely places for the leak are at the back of the master cylinder or at any of the 4 wheels. It is possible to draw air without a leak if your front brakes are extremely worn. If this is the case, replace the front brake pads and bleed only the front wheels. Please let me know if you have questions or need instructions, and thanks for using FixYa.

Losing break peddle when stopping


You may have a fluid leak, look for any puddles where you park or wetness on the inside of your wheels. Also make sure that there is enough fluid in the fluid reservoir. This is a pretty serious issue as you could lose your brakes altogether if there is a leak or lack of fluid. I would not drive the vehicle and have it towed to a shop where they can find whatever is leaking. Alternatively, you could have air in the system which causes a somewhat spongy brake pedal feel. This could happen if the brakes were not bled properly after a brake job was completed. Either way, it is dangerous to drive in this condition and really should be dealt with ASAP.

My blazer is leaking fluid from the right rear tire area . and i hear a strange knocking from my rear end


The leaking could be from your brake line, can you tell what color the fluid is and the texture? is is slippery or feels more like water? If it is brake fluid leaking that means you have a broke or busted line or a caliper/brake cylinder leaking which needs to be fixed quickly.

The cluch gose in very easy and will not shift unless car is off


Could be that you have a fluid leak on your slave cylinder to the clutch. You need to first check the clutch fluid res. out under the hood. Look for a small white res. close to the firewall. You can use DOT 3 brake fluid to refill if it is low. Once you have refilled it check for clutch peddle travel. Be sure to check for a leak under the car. Keep a check on the fluid res. to see how quick it leaks down.

Pedel goes to the floor no brakes at all


Check on the inner side of each wheel to make sure there is no leaking fluid. If there is, check the lines leading to the brakes and replace them where needed (hose is cheap at your local autoparts store).

If it's not holding the fluid, it's coming out somewhere. Find the leak, fix the hose (hopefully) or replace the part (hopefully not).

Brakes went completely out, not the brake pads


Do you mean the brake pedal goes down to the floor, and doesn't stop the van at all? If that is what happened, check the master brake cylinder reservoir under the hood, on the driver's side of the engine, at the 'firewall', which is the engine compartment metal wall that separates the inside of the van from the engine compartment. Is it low, or empty? If the fluid is down, there is a leak somewhere. This must be fixed before you can drive it safely. Check under the van for wet areas, especially at the back side of the wheels, and any puddles or wet spots on the ground under the van. Let me know what you find, I'll try to help further.
