FLUID LEVEL CHECK
Without Anti-Lock Brake System
See Figures 1, 2 and 3
The master cylinder is located under the hood, on the left side of the firewall. To check the fluid, use a suitable prytool to unfasten the retaining clip from the lid of the reservoir. The fluid level should be within 1 / 4 in. (6mm) of the top of the reservoir.
If the master cylinder is less than half full, there is probably a leak somewhere in the hydraulic system. Investigate the problem before driving the vehicle.With Anti-Lock Brake System
See Figure 4
- Turn the ignition switch ON and allow the pump motor to operate until it automatically de-energizes.
- The brake fluid level should be no lower than the MIN arrow indicator on the side of the reservoir. Add as necessary to raise the level to the MAX arrow indicator only.
Clean the cover before removing it and do not overflow the reservoir.
