1996 Honda Accord Question: How do I put brake fluid in the white plastic box mounted under the hood or do I
I bought the car 4 months ago and I don't have a manual nor knowledge regarding adding of fluids. Everything seemed to be at the proper levels until I recently discovered a white plastic container for brake fluid mounted under the hood on the driver side. (I thought there was only one) I am having concerns regarding an intermittent buzzing noise that started about 10 days ago and has been increasingly worse and I believe it is coming from that area. The ABS has never worked and I am in the process of saving the money to fix it Does it relate to the fact this box I discovered is empty? - lilyofthevalley58
It would be safest to take it to your mechanic. They may need to also bleed the brake system - in addition to topping off the fluid. - Prestige Auto Works
Does this car have a manual (stick shift) transmission? If so, it too has a place for 'brake' fluid to be added! However both of these containers are ROUND and not box shaped!! Run it by a lube shop and ask them to show you what to do. IF the 'brake' master cylinder is low, have the brake pads checked as they may be ready for replacement. - pushrod
Call Milt's Service Garage in Vallejo. They can top off fluids with special funnels. Brakes are too important to leave unattended. (707)643-7548 - Hal...
