If the leak is under the hood, it's your brake master cylinder that's bad.

1987 Dodge Dakota 6cyl. won't shift into reverse, drives forward in neutral but won't shift out of 1st that way. Drives and shifts fine in "D".

Is this an automatic? I can't tell if column shift or console? With column shift, Did you try taking shift linkage loose from tranny and shifting by hand? There are safety issues with trying that, make sure functional parking brake is set and the wheels are blocked. Also, have a helper sitting there with foot on the brake. Safety is your responsibility.

Maybe just a tranny issue, I'm not a tranny person.

You might be able to start it and kill it in drive? There are safety issues trying this and I don't want the responsibility. Safety is you responsibility.

The pan needs to be removed to change the filter. Use a large pan to catch the oil and remove the pan bolts slowly or you will have a big mess. After you have replaced the filter, Clean and reinstall the pan using a new gasket. This should stop the leak if the old gasket was bad. Dont over tighten the bolts. Measure the oil drained and install the same amount of new fluid through the trans dip stick. Start the engine and shift through all the gears with brake on. Check fluid and add if necessary. Not a bad job, just a little messy..

After putting brake fluid in, the fluid leaks out when the brakes are pumped. The fluid is coming out behind the gas tank where the brake line runs into a "box" like part.

What year is the car no never mind the brake line is rusted out chevy discidied that stanless steel was to expensive to use for brake lines as well fuel lines in the mid 90s through who knows when The good news is its cheap to fix parts wise but you need some smart enought to fix it The job requires a tubeing cutter a flareing tool and about 6 inches of new brake line with flares and fittings at a cost of 5 dollars at napa im not suposto tell you a name so i need a spelling error

Brakes have a mushy to floor response

usually an indicator of either a loss of pressure due to low fluid and/or air in the system (brake fluid leak) or extremely worn rear brakes (if drum brakes in rear). possible causes include master cylinder (internal fluid pressure leak), external fluid leaks (calipers, lines, wheel cylinders), rear drum brakes extremely worn down or severely out of adjustment. normally worn disc brakes may reduce pedal height SOME, but seldom "to floor". but the "mushy" quote combined with the "floor" quote suggests a hydrolic fluid pressure problem.

My brake fluid was empty and brake pedal goes to floor.I filled it but still seems the same

Hello, my name is Ben. If the fluid reservoir was empty there is most likely air in the system now. At a minimum you will need to bleed the brakes. Also, you need to look carefully behind each wheel and check for leaks.

ABS warning light coming on and off intermitently

You need to have the brakes checked. While the light is blinking, it is not too serious. When it does not go off, then is when the brake pads need replacement and possibly new rotors. Salt from the hiway during cold weather. Can cause the brake system to "get dirty" or leaking fluid. Fix them ASAP. If one wheel runs very sluggish, and the pads are bad, the wheel on the other side is contaminated bt dirt, sand , fluid etc.
