Front Brake Fluid Leak

I am still in the break in period of a XB9SX (less than 100 miles) and I noticed that my front brake line is leaking from the cupling that brings the fluid from the reservoir down to the wheel. Has anyone experienced this? Is there a quick fix or should I take it to have the dealer took at it?

Is it possible that the brake booster is the one responsible for loss of pressure during braking??


Make sure you don't have a leak in a line or in a caliper that is by passing the cylinder. If you can't find any fluid leaks then I would change the master cylinder for the brakes as it may be losing pressure in the master cylinder its self. In addition, be sure you don't have air in the brake lines. You may want to check for air in lines before changing the master cylinder, either way you will need to bleed the brakes.

Leaking fluid around left front wheel of 2001 Audi A6


If it is near the tire it is brake fluid. The brake fluid reservoir is back by the firewall driver side of engine compartment. Your car uses DOT 4 brake fluid.

Leaking brake fluid from right front wheel 1995 honda passport


Sounds like from what you describe it's a leaking break caliper. The best thing to do is get a rebuilt one. It's best to replace them in pairs. Also replace or clean the brake pads thoroughly!

Losing brake fluid with no leak


It's a sealed system, so it's got to be going somewhere, leaking somewhere (or boiling off from severe braking operations over and over). Since you likely haven't experienced extreme braking, it must be leaking somewhere.
You will have to trace all your brake lines from the master cylinder to each wheel to check for any sign of leaking. Front calipers are easy to spot leaks when they leak. If you have drum brakes on the rear, you may need to pull off the drum to check the wheel brake cylinders. Peel back the rubber boot on each end of the wheel cylinder and look for any fluid leaks there.
Another place to check is at the back of the master cylinder. If a seal is bad there, it has been known to leak fluid inside the car, under the dash. Feel around the carpet under and behind the brake pedal for any wetness. If you find brake fluid there, you will need the master cylinder replaced or rebuilt.
Hope you find the problem. Don't forget to check the ABS system and brake lines, too.

Clear color oil leak appears to be mostly in the front under front wheels is where I noticed it


Most likely BRAKE Fluid. !! Pull the wheels (one at a time if doing it yourself) and closely inspect the calipers and flex line to them and teh connections to the metal line which goes to the brake master cylinder.
Its worth taking to a brake shop for inspection. Quick look is usually free.
CHECK YOUR BRAKE FLUID LEVEL BEFORE DRIVING FURTHER.

The brake fluide is leaking I have filled up 3 time in 7 day how can I fix it


Look where the fluid is coming from under the car if it is in front of the car it is a front brake line issue these are easy to fix. look at the brake hoses on the left front and right front behind the tire these usually these lines dryrot and leak. the front steel brack line will usaully brake where they are mounted on the car body. If your brake line is leaking from the drivers door back it is a rear brake there is a single brake line that goes to the back and splits into two lines there is another rubber hose by where they split. you can fix brake lines with new steel line and compression fittings where you slide on and tighten the front is 1/8 size line and the back brakes are 3/16.

1999 daewoo matiz has lost brakes fluid has leaked out. what is the most likely cause?


You must look for 'wet' areas under the car to determine where a brake line may be leaking fluid. This can be caused by corrosion (metal brake lines rusting away), or damage, if the car ran over some debris in the road. The front brakes have flexible rubber lines attached at the wheels, so the car can turn, and the lines 'flex' or move. The rubber can deteriorate over time, causing cracks that can leak fluid. So, you must be a detective and examine the underside of the car to determine where the leak is. If you can't find any evidence, the last thing to check is the master brake cylinder, mounted on the firewall. If the seals go bad, you should notice leakage, usually only visible inside the car, under the dash where the brake pedal meets the master cylinder.

Rear brakes lockup when you touch the pedal


there is a brake regulator on modern systems which controls the power between the front and the back breaks this maybe defective

when a car breaks most of the breaking force is placed on the front breaks as that is where most of the energy is heading so the car sinks down. if the same amount of breaking force is placed on the back wheels as they rise they have less friction as the weight is forward so they will lock up.
the device is designed to maintain more force to the front, if it fails the system will apply even force to all wheels.

recommend cosulting a certifed garage or local dealership about this problem.
Warning; continual driving with defctive breaks is illegal and may result in injury or loss.

99 GMC Sierra Fluid Leak Immediately after Getting Oil Change


as an owner of three gmc sierras, i can attest that the brake lines that run along the frame rail under the master cylinder inherently rust away and break. I wouldnt neccesarily think it was tampered with. but do check the condition of all of the lines including the fuel lines for excessive rust.
