Question about Toyota Corolla
Unless you have a leak in the brake system the only reason your brake fluid level master cylinder would be empty is that your brake pads are worn out. As they wear the fluid level goes down. You need to check for a leak at all 4 wheels and the complete system. If you find no leak then inspect all brake pads and replace as necessary. I would also bleed the brakes as you let the fluid get very low. More than likely a new set of brake pads will solve your problem. The only thing that is suspicious is the clunk you heard. Make sure a trusted mechanic gives your brake system a good inspection. It can be very dangerous if your brakes fail.

This means you lost pressure, the clunk may or may not be related,the thing to do is pull all four wheels and check the brakes, check calipers and make sure they are all bolted up and the rear do the same or if its drum brakes then remove the drum and make sure the wheel cylinders are good and not leaking, i would bet that a brake line blew due to rotting or a wheel cylinder let go, you will see the brake fluid leak. a good tip is to fill the resivor and pump the pedal a few times and you will see the fluid run out and that will be the leak. have someone help you by watching while you pump the brake pedal and they will see the leak but still remove the wheels and check all the brakes. good luck. have a good day.
