For vehicles with a manual transmission, it is not necessary to regularly check brake/clutch fluid unless there is a leak suspected.
Adding fluid will not correct a leak.
A fluid loss in this system could indicate a problem. Have the system inspected and repaired.
When to Check and What to Use
The brake/hydraulic clutch fluid
reservoir cap has this symbol on it.
The common brake/clutch fluid reservoir is filled with DOT 4 brake fluid as indicated on the reservoir cap. See Engine Compartment Overview on page 10-7 for reservoir location.
How to Check and Add Fluid
Visually check the brake/clutch fluid reservoir to make sure the fluid level is at the MIN (minimum) line on the side of the reservoir. The brake/ hydraulic clutch fluid system should be closed and sealed.
Do not remove the cap to check the fluid level or to top off the fluid level.
Remove the cap only when necessary to add the proper fluid until the level reaches the MIN line.
