Im not very mechanically inclined so try to bare with me lol. Im on my way to work today and suddenly lose most of my brake pressure. I checked the fluid and it was low so i filled it but still have very little pressure. would this be a leak or something possibly more serious?
Could be a leak anywhere. Calipers, hard lines, soft lines, master cylinder, push rod, etc. Also, it could be your fluid got low and you sucked some air in the system. If you don't see any leaks anywhere, try bleeding the system at all 4 wheels.
You should see it dripping somewhere. Also could be a bad master cyl.
If you do NOT see it leaking anywhere, it might be that the resevoir was low due to your brake pads being worn, and your calipers are holding more fluid to make up the difference. If that is the case, bleeding and filling should solve the issue.
