Q: Major brake fluid leak

asked by on

The brake fluid leaks from my car as soon as I put it in.

Hi. It is unsafe to drive the vehicle with a major brake fluid leak. It should not be driven until a proper diagnosis of where the brake fluid is leaking can be obtained. The vehicle may have a faulty brake line or component. If this is found to be the case, a certified mechanic can replace the bad brake line to ensure your safety is not compromised.
