Q: Brake lines leaking.

asked by on January 14, 2016

I have a likely leak in the brake lines. The brake fluid reservoir will not stay filled and a puddle forms beneath the car after filling up the reservoir.

Brake lines are known for rusting out and leaking. I would recommend a technician from YourMechanic come out and replace it as needed.
