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.

How to blead rear brakes

Remove the Master cylinder cap. make sure it is full of fluid. (if it has drum brakes) open the rear bleeder located on the back of the brake housing plate, above the axle near the brake line. (if it has disc brakes) the bleeder is located on the top of the caliper. Open one and let it sit for ten min. close it. now do the other side. replacing the fluid when needed. repeat if needed.

Where is the dipstick for checking the brake fluid

The brake fluid reservoir does not use a dipstick for checking levels.

The reservoir is located on the driver side of the vehicle in the engine compartment, directly in front of the firewall and to the left of the strut tower.

It has a black cap on it that will have the fluid type required and a warning about cleaning the cap before removing it. This helps prevent anything from contaminating the fluid. If you see that the reservoir is dirty, cleaning it will reveal the fill line for the fluid level. Fill with the described fluid requirement on the cap.

Where do you put the brake fluid in a 1998 Chevy malilbu

The brake fluid goes in a reservoir on top of the master cyclinder inside the firewall under the hood.

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

No Brakes, changed Booster, thought it was air in the lines. When bleeding no fluid coming out of front right and back brake bleeder valves. Checked rubber line, is ok. Clogged somewhere in the line. Have...

Is the master cylinder good? a bad master can cause this also did you bleed the master first before bleeding at the wheel and also make sure the bleeder screw is clean, if the hose is good then theres only a few things, a bad master or a master that wasnt bleed, try bleeding the master first then try rebleeding the brakes.

Stupid question? But where does the brake fluid go on my 06 kia rio

The brake fluid resivoir should be located on the right side of the engine compartment...look a white/clear plastic compartment. The cap should read brake fluid.

The brake indicator light is flickering.

If it's flickering while driving, check to see if your brake fluid level is at max level line.
if not at max, add more fluid.
if at max, check brake reservior cap. there should be a float on a stick located under the cap. There shouldn't be any brake fluid inside the float.
If there's fluid in the float then replace brake resercior cap.
note:The float set the brake indicator light to let you know that brake fluid are low. Brake fluid inside the float cause it to sink making the car think that fluid are low.

Brake Hose replacement

  • Clean around the old brake lines carefully before removing them to prevent any gunk or debris from getting into the brake line connections.
  • Remove the brake fluid reservoir cap, cover it with some plastic wrap and replace the cap. This prevents too much fluid from leaking out when changing the brake hoses.
  • Take the tire off of the car and loosen the brake lines at each end. Plug the brake line at the fender to prevent too much fluid leakage. Save the washers and reuse them after removing the old brake line.
  • Line up the new brake line hex nut with the bracket and hand tighten it before putting the metal clips back on. Tighten with a wrench after the clips are in place.
  • Make sure to torque the brake lines to the manufacturers' specifications for the brakes to work properly.
  • Repeat the process for each tire and brake line on your car.
  • Bleed the brakes as necessary after replacing the brake lines and make sure you have plenty of brake fluid in your reservoir.

Where do you put the brake fluid

In the brake master cylinder, which is attatched to the brake booster located on the firewall, drivers side, under the hood. There is a plastic container mounted on top with either 1 or 2 screw caps, just unscrew them and put in the fluid. There is at least 4 brake lines attatched to the master cylinder, can't miss it.
