My Brake Resivoir is E-M-P-T-Y!

Yikes!!!

Just discovered this. Can I just add to it to bring it to 'Full' when cold?

Or does the system need to be bled then added?

Thanks for your replies.

From other posts on here previously,,,they all advised bleeding and flushing the whole system with Valvoline Synthetic Brake fluid and refilling,,,you will have better brakes also!!!

If it's completely empty you probably have air in the system and they need to be bled. If there's air in the system the pedal will go to the floor and the car won't stop. Very important to find the cause of the empty resevoir.

Better find out what caused the leak down to occur while you are bleeding the brakes. Definitely use the Valvoline Synthetic!
