The Nissan Altima has an opaque cylinder that holds the brake fluid. Looking on the side of the cylinder, check the high and low marks and make sure that the fluid is between the two.

Under the hood on the driver's side is a large round vacuum booster. Attached to it is the master cylinder. Before you add any fluid you will need to check and see which fluid is required, Dot3 or Dot4. Add fluid to the fill line or 1/2 inch from the top. DO NOT mix fluids.
