Question about 2004 Jeep Grand Cherokee
The "brake fluid cap" is the rubber cover of the brake fluid reservoir on top of the brake master. It would look like the black cover of the image below.
The brake line would be the two tubings from the master brake cylinder, one to the front, the other for the rear.
Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.
Good luck and kind regards. Thank you for using FixYa.

Your brake system requires DOT3 brake fluid. The reservoir will be on the drivers side mounted to the master cylinder that is mounted to the brake booster that is bolted to the firewall.

Open the hood of your 1998 Chevy Malibu and locate the brake fluid reservoir. On a 1998 Malibu, it's located on the driver's side closest to the front windshield. Open the reservoir tank and place the cap in a safe place where it won't get lost. Fill it to the fill line and not above then replace the cap and your done. Now you need to figure out where the brake fluid is going since this is a closed system and if it is low then your brakes are getting worn and more fluid is accumulating in the lines due to more travel of the brake cyclinders or you have a leak. The master cylinder should look like this picture, if you find this helpful, a vote with the thumbs up would be appreciated
