Help! No Brakes!

Postby DOHC_tuner » Sun Jan 10, 2016 7:34 pm

I have a 1990 GTZ. A couple days earlier the brake light came on. Today I backed out of the drive way and the brake traveled all the way down and did not stop the car. I checked the reservoir and there was no fluid. This is my A to B so please help. I filled the reservoir however I'm sure I now need to bleed the brakes. But what should I look for in the meantime. I mean how does this happen. Cut brakes? I hope not.

You should have evidence of leaking fluid somewhere. If you can't find it under the car or coming from a wheel cylinder or caliper, then it may be the master cylinder leaking into the brake booster.

pass or driver soft line at a looping bend is my guess.

Sorry for the late update. This is my a to b so I needed it running ASAP. It was the wheel cylinder on the driver side. Quick easy fix. Bleeding the master cylinder was the hard part. They were tight!
