Look around the master cylinder, wheel cylinders and flexible lines.

  • You don't state if you actually have a problem,or if you are just checking.

The brake fluid level will drop as the disc pads wear and the pistons move out to compensate.Probably the biggest actual leak source is the rear wheel cylinders mentioned above,(Unless you have four discs)?you need to remove the brake drums to check these.Post again with more info if this is no help.

brake warning light on can mean your handbrake is engaged or that brake fuild is low. Those would be the first two easy things to check. If your brake fluid is low, you will need to keep a close eye on that, as you may have a leak and that can lead to a loss of your brakes.

With the egine and transmission at normal operating temp and the car level you remove the small pipe plug located at the output same of the right front axel shaft. A small amount of fuild should run out. If it doesn't you add fuild until it does, then reinstall the plug. Be careful because the fuild is HOT!

How often should you change brake fuild?

brake fluid changes and brake inspections should be done atleast every two years, mainly the brake fluid has a tendancy to soak up moisture in the air and then this accumulated water tends to boil in the lines and calipers and brake cylinders during use, causing air pockets and a degradtion of braking, and can cause a complete loss of brakes at times.
