    Good day Tsikoteers! Help po sa pag diagnose ng problem ko...

    May sign of brake fluid leak in between hydrovac and car wall at umagas ito hanggang sa underchassis ko. For 3 days napansin ko ang spot ng leak sa garahe ko. Sabi ng mechanic observe ko daw muna kung magbabawas ang fluid. Kakatapos ko lang kasi ito ipa replace ng brake fluid at siniphon nila ang old from the tires and the fluid receptacle.

    Sabi nung isang mechanic baka may stock daw sa hydrovac at tumapon ito dahil di naman nabawasan ang fluid gaano, siguro mga 3mm lang from max level. Pero judging sa dami ng agas sa underchassis at sa tulo sa garahe ko, parang dapat halos nasa minimum na or below pa ang fluid level ko.

    Meron po kaya sa inyo ng nakaranas na ng ganito?

    Try running your car on idle and step on the brakes. Pag spongy ang feeling there is something wrong. Pero ako balik ko kaagad yan since preno yan medyo delikado. Saking bumili ako repair kit for the master cylinder to stop that type of leak.

    Bro Cobalt, may leak pero di nababawasan ang fluid sa reservoir e? The mechanics are also wondering why, so observe muna kung magbabawas nga, nai-byahe ko na ng 1 week or 250+ kms since I noticed the leak in my garage yet walang bawas ang reservoir. Ok rin naman ang tapak sa preno, walang pinagbago. Ipa-baklas ko na ba ang master at hydrovac? May leak test ba sa mga ganito? Thanks.

    Edit add: Palitan ko na kaya ang repair kit kahit hindi nagbabawas ang fluid? Parang preventive measure lang?

    Just an update, naka log na ko ng additional 300+ kms since my last post and nawala na rin yung tulo ng brake fluid. Brake fluid level in reservoir did not change and brakes are normal. Just puzzled what really happened. Hoping some readers may give their opinion as to possible cause.
