Most brake systems use brake fluid, not oil. Most cars and trucks have a reservoir under the hood on the firewall with a removable cap where you add fluid. The cap will usually have information as to the type of fluid to use. If you are losing fluid you may need to have someone find the leak, as having the brakes fail while driving can be dangerous.

There is water in my brake fluid resevoir why and what do i do


The braking system is fully sealed from the brake cylinders to the servo, so the only place water could have got in is from the cap on the reservoir.

Ideally, you should replace all the fluid by draining the system and refilling it. What you may be able to do though is suck all the water and fluid out of the reservoir dry it with paper kitchen towel and refill the reservoir it with fresh fluid.

Series3 .i have oil coming out of the handbrake drum,i refilled the transfer box,is there a oil seal or gasket leaking?


YOUR REAR BRAKES ARE ALSO YOUR HAND BRAKES, BUT YOU DIDNT SPECIFY IF THEY WERE DRUM OR DISK BRAKES.....CHECK THE SEAL ON THE CYLINDER ....ON DRUM BRAKES YOU MAY NEED A NEW ONE.
IF YOU HAVE DISK BRAKES, CHECK THE CALIPER (THE THING THAT SQUEEZES THE PADS ON THE DISK) YOU MAY HAVE A LEAK THERE....OR TIGHTEN THE NUT ON THE BRAKE LINE...... YOU ALSO FAILED TO MENTION IF YOUR BRAKE FLUID CONSTANTLY NEEDS REFILLING. IF NON OF THESE APPLY, CHECK FOR AN OIL LEAK OUT OF THE CENTER OF THE HUB, WHERE THE SEAL WOULD BE..IF THERE IS, THERE ARE YOUTUBE VIDEOS EXPLAINING HOW TO RESOLVE YOUR PROBLEM, DEPENDING IF YOU HAVE DISK OR DRUM BRAKES. GOOD LUCK.

Where is the engine oil spout for a 1996 Chevrolet Blazer Where do you put the engine oil in?


depends on engine, some are on one or the other valve cover,my older GMC pickup( 305 v8), has it on the left valve cover toward frount, and says "oill here"
I have also seen older modles have a tube with a cap at midle frount of engine, usually it will be marked with either "oill here", or just plain "oill"
I hope this wil help!

How to flush out brake lines


open up all of your bleeders.Fill with brake fluid and pump the brakes for a few min. after you have good brake fluid coming out of the brakes close all of your bleeders back. Refill master cylinder, now you want to start with the wheel farthest away from the master, open the bleeder and have someone compress the brakes a couple of time to get the air our, then close the bleeder. Do this with the other wheels, be sure to keep an eye on the fluid level between bleeding on each wheel. Refill if low at each brake. Start at farthest and go to the next farhest until you get done. Your brakes should feel good and tight.

In order to do this. Jack up the car on tire at a time. Look underneath the car and you should see a bleeder valve. Attach a hose to the valve, then run the valve into a jar filled with brake fluid.

Drain and Refill brake fluid (step by step)


You shouldnt have to drain the brake fluid! havent heard of that before but i might be wrong. but anyways all you have to do to drain it is that there should be a little nipple looking thing somewhere on the caliper it might have a rubber peice on it. screw that off and the fluid should come out. to speed up the process push on brake. after replacing the caliper you need to bleed the brakes. wich means getting all the air out of them by turning the same nipple and witing till the fluid runs out then screw it back tight. dont press brake on this part

1989 dodge ram 150 4/w drive pickup has no oil pressure showing on the gage, driving or sitting still.


You need to have a oil pressure guage hooked up to see if you have a bad guage, sending unit to the guage, or if your oil pressure is actually low. Any garage should be able to do this, if you can't get one.
