FLUID RECOMMENDATION AND LEVEL CHECK
See Figures 1, 2 and 3
Check the levels of brake fluid in the brake and clutch master cylinder reservoirs every 3,000 miles (4,800 km). The fluid should be maintained at a level not below the bottom line on the reservoirs and not above the top line. Any sudden decrease in the level in any of the reservoirs indicates a probable leak in that particular system and should be checked out immediately.
When adding fluid, use only fresh, uncontaminated brake fluid, meeting or exceeding DOT 3 standards.
Do not allow the fluid container or master cylinder reservoirs to remain open any longer than necessary; brake fluid absorbs moisture from the air, reducing its effectiveness and causing brake and clutch line corrosion.
