    It lives !!!!

    as some of you might have read I picked up a 1989 red tan interior in late nov. drove for two night's all seemed ok but for the radio just as I was putting away for the winter the brake light came on since then I got a manual to see why, after reading and seeing the what could happen plus cost's of some part's I sat all winter shiting my pant's thinking what have I got into, so today the sun came out went and looked it over noticed the brake fluid was low so stared with the kiss system went to town got some dot 3 filled it put the new battery in car started right away pump ran for 40 or so shut off and light went out shut off started again pump ran 30 shut off NO LIGHT pressed pedal pump buzzed then shut off brakes feel great the car even said good morning I think we are going to get along just fine. Now mother get your ass in gear it's time

    Low brake fluid usually means thin brake pads. When its warm enough, pull the front wheels and look at the pads. If worn, dont just push the pads back in the caliper like most any other car. Crack the bleeder screw on the caliper then push the pads back. Pushing the fluid back upstream can contaminate the accumulator and ABS system. Cracking open the bleeder should not require you to then bleed the system.
