Billy :

Hello and thank you for using Just answer! I'm Billy and i will assist you with this. Feel free to ask if further info is needed.

Billy :

This is the brake reservoir (on top of master cylinder and servo):

Billy :

And dot 4 fluid is good for these brakes,

Billy :

Top up to the max..........but check for any leaks.....and then check if the brake pads are worn.....as if brake pads are worn requiring replacement, the brake fluid level will drop.....

Billy :

As for the power steering fluid, you should use Dexron III ATF (automatic transmission fluid)

Customer:
