How can I check the brake fluid level in my car?

Brake Fluid

Maintain a monthly check of the brake fluid in our cars. Begin by wiping dirt off the reservoir lid of the master cylinder; pry off safety clip and remove or unscrew plastic lid (depends on the type your vehicle has). Add approved type of fluid for your car, and check for possible leaks in this system. Fill to mark on the reservoir...Do NOT overfill!
