Why is there brake fluid gushing out of a
small pipe out of truck firewall?

7 Answers


Is the brake line split open? Did something rub a hole in it? usually there is an external factor that causes brake lines to start leaking.

No lines are fine abs and and brake light came on and it was out of brake fluid so put some in and if you tap the brakes it leaks from a small pipe coming out of firewall any suggestions what would even be there we tried Google and diagrams and nothing comes up even a certified mechanic says nothing with brakes should be hooked into firewall thanks for the reply


I am coming up with the same thing, I see no direct relation to the firewall and a brake fluid leak, could you perhaps provide a picture of where it is leaking?
