We are having to put brake fluid in everyday or the brakes won't work. The brake pads never gave any warning signs of being low. What is the problem?
it's gettin' out somewhere...probably the caliper seals or the wheel cylinder seals...pull back the wheel cylinder with a "hook tool" to see that it is leaking...replace the leakin' part~ could you narrow it down to the front or rear braking circuits?...all you have to do is LOOK where the leak is....park on top of a piece of cardboard...or put an old soda case under each wheel to find the leak~
most likely a rusted break line leaking that much.. a caliper or wheel cylinder don't leak that fast it might would pull or maybe even lock upa wheel but not leak that fast... fill it up fluid and have someone push the break pedal while the other looks under and around for drips or wet spots getting bigger.. hope this help
If it is leaking at any wheel it will be easily seen. Fluid will be all over the backside of the tire. Visually check the brake lines then the master cylinder area. It's going to be somewhere.
