Try pumping pedal with booster vacuum line disconnected at booster,
check if any fluid at vacuum connection.
Do this with engine not running.
Please let me know if pedal goes hard and fluid at vacuum port
, if so booster is faulty

Why leakage of brake fluid from all tyres on landrover defender TDi300 1999 model?


If brake fluid is really leaking from tires you have a unusual problem. If leaking from all wheel cylinders someone has likely put the wrong type fluid into the system. Unless the newer LR's have changed, they use only Girling brake fluid made especially for english systems. Regular USA DOT 3 or 4 WILL NOT WORK and quickly degrades the natural rubber parts in these English systems.

Brake fluid disappearing


If brake fluid is disappearing from the reservoir and you can’t find a leak, check the pedal bucket. A leaking clutch master cylinder will fill it up with fluid, with no exterior leaks. And it holds nearly a pint of fluid!

I hit my brake pedal and felt it bleed off but there is not no line infraction or leaks after checkout but still having to replace brake fluid. The breaks are soft and go plum to the floor for some reason


If you are having to replace brake fluid after you've filled it and bled the lines to remove air you have a brake line leak somewhere. I suggest following the break lines (probably 2 of them) from the Master Cylinder to the ABS unit. If there are no leaks then follow the other 4 lines coming out of the ABS to their respective wheels. The disappearing brake fluid has to be going somewhere, try putting large pieces of cardboard under your vehicle to check for drips, this may help in locating the leak. Also inspect the caliper area as brake fluid could be leaking from there as well. Please remember: PLAY IT SAFE!! Don't drive a vehicle with improperly working brakes! Stopping is the most important part of driving!

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.

How to put brake fluid in


Find the master cylinder on the driver's side under the hood. There should be a cap that you can remove to add fresh DOT 3 brake fluid into a reservoir as the brake pads and shoes wear, or if there is a leak.

Where do you put the brake fluid in the engine


You never put brake fluid in the engine, brake fluid only goes in the brake master cylinder, which is on the drivers side under the hood, close to the fire wall, will have a small resivor.

Brake light comes on and off and it makes a dinging noise while on very annoying


Put some brake fluid in your brake reservoir. (DOT 3 Fluid) Your brake shoes and pads have worn more than 50 %. Due to the wear the reservoir is natrually drained to make up for the wheel cylinders having to extend further to get the same braking action.
Also take a look around the inside of all of your axles for signs of leakage. A leaking wheel cylinder will also cause brake system fluid loss.
