Brake fluid leak
Car is my cousin's 2000 3.0 and he has a brake leak coming from the driver's side front area. I haven't taken a look at it yet but will get over there tomorrow or wed. He almost ran a stop sign the other day. He doesn't keep up on maintenance on his car at all, has been without power steering for 2 years due to a leak in the rack he never got fixed. Going to try and fix the brakes, then the coolant leak, then the power steering for him over the next couple weeks, but like usually he doesn't have much money!
So for the brake leak I am going to assume it's either a hard line going to the caliper or the caliper itself, or the line connection to the caliper. So I will either have to replace a brake line or a caliper, my guess is the brake line, but this is without looking at anything. So if it is a line leak what is the best way to fix this? He said it was coming from the front left wheel so if the line needs replacing I would think it would just be the flex hose?
Any advice on what to check for or where to get parts will be much appreciated. Thanks.
