I want to know what the black cap by the oil dipstick is on a 2010 Pontiac G6?


On a 2002 mustang it is the reservoir for brake fluid. The fluid level should not be high enough to leak. One way to get too much is if someone adds fluid to the reservoir because the level is low. Its normal for the level to go down as the brake pads wear. The piston pushing on the brake pad requires more fluid to force the brake pad into the brake rotor as the pad wears. If you put more fluid in and later replace your brake pads, the pistons must be pushed back to their original position to install the new pads. Pushing back on the pistons causes a backflow of fluid to the reservoir. Since you added more fluid earlier there is now too much and it can overflow. If this is your problem you can bleed out excess fluid. The valve to bleed the fluid is down behind the wheel near the brake pad calipers.

How to bleed back brakes


This procedure will require two people and a 8mm or 10 mm box wrench. First, make sure the brake fluid reservoir is full of brake fluid. Locate bleeder screw on rear caliper and remove the rubber cap. While your assistant depresses and holds the rear brake pedal, unscrew the bleeder valve just enough for the fluid to come out. Tighten the screw and have your assistant depress the brake pedal a couple of times and then hold it down while the bleeder valve is opened again. If nothing but fluid comes out, any air that was in the rear system has been vacated. Tighten the bleeder valve and replace the rubber cap. Check and top off brake fluid in the reservoir.

How to bleed rear break on dyna glide bike


Bleeding the brake is not difficult but it must be done in a certain way. Follow these directions exactly. First remove the top from the rear brake master cylinder and check the fluid level. If you add fluid during this process, make sure you are putting the right kind of fluid in the reservoir. It should be printed right on the top cover of the reservoir. Place the top back on the reservoir but you don't have to put the screws in it. All we are going to do with it at this point is keep brake fluid from splashing on your bike. To bleed the brakes, depress and hold the rear brake pedal. Open the bleed valve on the rear brake about a half turn and allow the brake fluid and air to bleed out. Close the brake bleeder valve. Release the brake pedal and check the fluid level in the reservoir. Do not allow the reservoir to run dry. Continue to bleed the brakes until you have a full firm brake pedal. Then top off the reservoir and replace the cap and screws. You can put a piece of small diameter clear hose on the end of the bleeder valves to direct the brake fluid into a catch jar and it makes this job much neater. Do not allow the brake fluid to get on painted surfaces as it can damage the paint.

Good Luck
Steve

How to bleed rear brakes


  1. Remove the top of the master cylinder reservoir.
  2. Using a turkey baster, **** out as much of the old dark inky fluid as you can.
  3. Clean any sediment out of the reservoir with a clean, lint-free rag. (Do not spill any brake fluid on any painted surfaces, it will remove the paint immediately.)
  4. Fill the master cylinder with clean brake fluid.
  5. Replace the top of the master cylinder reservoir.
  6. Pump the brake pedal several times (15 or more).
  7. Using a box wrench that fits the bleeder bolt, loosen the bleeder valves, but leave them closed. (A little penetrating oil drizzled on the bolts the day before will help to loosen them).
  8. Using a piece of clear plastic tubing (aquarium tubing works fine), push one end of the tube over the brake bleeder bolt.
  9. Put the other end of the tube into a small, clear bottle with an inch or two of clean brake fluid in it. (This will keep air from being sucked back into the brake cylinder.)
  10. Put a piece of 1 x 4 lumber or some other "spacer" under the brake pedal to prevent the pedal from traveling too close to the floor.
  11. Remove the top of the master cylinder reservoir.
  12. Top off the master cylinder reservoir with fresh fluid.
  13. Replace the top of the master cylinder reservoir.
  14. Have your helper sit in the driver's seat and slowly depresses the brake pedal with an even force and hold it down. The helper should shout "down" when the pedal is down as far as it will go.
  15. 15Starting with the rear passenger wheel (back right for righthand drive cars), turn the bleeder bolt to the left one quarter-turn. Old fluid and air will go down the tubing into the bottle. When the fluid stops, close the bleeder valve.
  16. Shout "up" to your helper, who at this point should remove his foot from the pedal allowing it to move up.
  17. Repeat this process until new, clear fluid comes from the bleeder tube. (After every five (5) times the brake pedal is depressed, top off the master cylinder reservoir with fresh fluid. Never let the reservoir get too low, or air will be sucked into the master cylinder.)
  18. Tighten the bleeder bolt.
  19. Repeat steps 14 to 17 on the left rear wheel.
  20. Repeat steps 14 to 17 on the right front wheel.
  21. Repeat steps 14 to 17 on the left front wheel.

I need to top up the power stering fluid and need to know what tipe to use 1988 chevy silverado C3500 454 The power steering looks like it is incorperated into the brake booster


power steering is at the front of the engine and runs on the belt. The reservoir cap looks like this:
73b4b95.jpg To top off steering fluid, use standard steering fluid.

The reservoir in front of the brake booster is the brake master cylinder reservoir. To refill, use standard brake fluid. If it the truck is using brake fluid, check for leaks at the back of the master cylinder and at all wheels.

Please let us know if you have more questions.

Where do you put brake fluid


Not on the paint, not in the radiator nor coolant overflow, not in the wiper washer reservoir, not in the transmission, not in the crankcase, not in the power steering pump. That leaves only one more hole, usually on the firewall near the hood's bottom when closed and more or less in a straight line with where your foot would be when placed on the brake. Will be a cap, most likely black plastic, which unscrews from the top of an opaque reservoir. Should be some type of fill mark on the side. If the reservoir is empty and the brake light on then have it towed to a shop.

Hi, If there is excessive air in your system after reassembly of master cylinder, the lever will have a spongy feeling about it and possible inconsistency or will have travel, bleeding the hydraulic system is best carried out by two people, remove the reservoir lid, top up over half and replace lightly to keep out dust, get a old glass jar, and a clear pipe that pushes down into the top of the bleeder valve, which is on top of the caliper block, and sink pipes other end into a little brake fluid in the glass, ensure there is always sufficient brake fluid in the reservoir tank, top up later if needed, use open spanner for bleeder valve, unscrew the bleeder valve one half turn and squeeze the brake lever as far as it will go, but do not release it until the bleeder valve is tightened again, repeat this a few times until a no more air bubbles come from the plastic pipe. Also, ensure all other joints are secured in this brake system, When all the bubbles disappear, close the bleeder valve, remove the pipe and install the bleeder valve dust cap. Check the fluid level in the reservoir, after the bleeding operation has been complete. Reinstall the Diaphragm, and the cap. Do not use the brake fluid drained from system as it contains minute air bubbles. There was the question of the locking pads, after the air is removed from the calipers, and there is still a prob, I might have the answer

Where is the brake fluid resovoir?


Hi:
Your brake fluid reservoir is located on the back wall of the engine compartment, on the drivers side, and is approximately right in front of the brake pedal. It is a opaque plastic reservoir with markings on the side, and the top unscrews or pops off to top it off.

My e brake light starting coming on everytime i make a sharp turn. Why is this happening?


Brake fluid in the reservoir is low due to displacement of the fluid through the lines. As the brake pads wear the fluid makes up the difference. The sensor in the reservoir is triggering the light as the fluid moves from one side of the reservoir to the other. The brake pads (front or rear) are getting close to replacement. If they still have some life and you're not ready to change them you can just top off the fluid in the reservoir to turn off the light. However, when you do go to replace them the reservoir will become overfull and the excess fluid will spill on the ground. It's not a bad thing, just something to be expected if you just top it off.

Location of rear brake reservoir


The rear brake reservoir should be under the right side cover. It unscrews and you can add fluid.You might have a 8 or 10 mm bolt holding the cover down, but more likely you'll have to just pull it. It has push in studs that go into rubber grommets to hold it in place.
