Why would a 1994 Cavalier Z24 lose brake fluid and grab and pull to the right?

Look at it to see where the fluid is going. Check the LEFT FRONT brake to see if it is not working and causing the right one to do it all.

Low brake fluid,worn front brake pads,worn rear brake shoes. If the fluid is low it is probably because the pads or shoes are worn and the missing fluid is in the front calipers or rear wheel cylinders. But check your brakes,stopping is much more important than starting.

You need to have the brake fluid changed immediately. Washer fluid will damage all of the seals in the brake system

The caliber needs replacing. Also I would suspect your brake system needs flushing. Replace all the old contaminated fluid with fresh brake fluid from an unopened can.

this would be brake fluid have it checked before the brakes fail and you wreck

Any fluid would cause the fluid low light to come on in a Chevy cavalier. Fluids such as brake line fluid, power steering, transmission, and quite possibly oil. Everything but gas, grease and radiator fluid. Get her checked out at any large garage. They should take a glance for free. Do it soon though. The item may burn up and you will have to get a new part.

it depends on what model you have, the obvious place would be in the brake fluid resevior mounteing the servo.

Open the hood and look at the back of the engine compartment right in front of the driver's position. You should see a fluid resivoir just below the hood level. This would be the brake fluid resivoir.

There is no substitute available that can be used for brake fluid. Using anything other than brake fluid could be dangerous and would likely cause damage.

User Avatar

No. That would be a huge mistake. Buy brake fluid. Its only $2 to $8 dollars at a store.

Low brake fluid level or a stuck brake fluid level sensor. Check the brake fluid level and if it is ok, tap on the master cylinder reservoir with your finger

User Avatar

No, it would ruin all the seals in the entire brake system.

NEED BRAKE INSPECTION POSSIBLY NEW BRAKE PADS, Check brake fluid imediately. had a similar problem on a 1990 camry. brake fluid level was slightly low. when temperature outside would drop, applying brakes would lower level and brake light would come on. possibly caused by a small leak in brake line. filling brake fluid would fix, but would reappear a couple of months later. Have brake lines checked for leak.

Both the power steering pump and the brake booster operate hydraulically. Putting brake fluid in the power steering pump will not harm it since brake fluid is a light oil only with different properties. I would only worry if it were the other way around and you put power steering fluid in the brake master cylinder. Power steering fluid doesn't have the heat range or density of brake fluid.

It is toward the back about where the drivers right side area would be. However how you get the cap off to add fluid is beyond me. It is too far back to be able to reach in or get a funnel in there. ? ? So how do you add brake fluid on these vans?

MOISTURE IN YOUR BRAKE FLUID. FLUSH SYSTEM WITH NEW FLUID.

User Avatar

Your power steering will fail because brake fluid is poor lubricant.

User Avatar

It all depends on what part is leaking what fluid. Brake cylinder would leak brake fluid. Axle seal would leak gear oil.

User Avatar

A better match would be auto trans. fluid

User Avatar

There would be break fluid OUTSIDE of the lines and reservoir

User Avatar

A brake fluid leak in the system would do that. Check the brake fluid reservoir. If it is empty you are in need of brake work asap!

User Avatar

The best answer is to ask your local Toyota dealer. The alternative answer would be to screw the cap off your tank in the engine bay that says brake fluid. The fluid on the stick should be a clear light brown. When you touch it the fluid should not be slippery, greasy, or discolored. If there is any sediment in there then change it right away and make sure to clean out the fluid reservoir. Also change your brake fluid every two years and flush out the brake lines for superior maintenance.

In my manual for the Vauxhall VX 2300, year 1977, it says that the right Brake Fluid is of the type GM-4653-M. Trouble is that I can not find out on the internet weather this is Dot 3 or Dot 4 Brake Fluid (DOT 5?)...... Would be nice if someone did have that answer. zwets_@hotmail.com

if brake pedal is soft , either there is air in the system ,a brake fluid leak, or brake linings and pads are worn allowing the pedal to travel to far if there is a fluid leak, this can usually be found by getting under vehicle and looking at inside of wheels for brake fluid
