Question:

If a leak develops in the brake system of a vehicle, you may experience:?

A. Total brake failure.B. Partial brake failure.C. An increase in stopping distance.D. All the above.

Answer:

This depends on where the leak is coming from. If it is coming from the master Cylinder, then D, all of the above. But if the leak is in either in the front or the back, then B and C, because the brake systems on all vehicles beginning in the late sixties are dual reservoirs, meaning that if you develop a leak in the front system the rear system will still function to stop your vehicle, but not as effectively, like answers B and C. I HIGHLY recommend that if you have a leak on the brake system to immediately park the vehicle until repairs can be made. Messing around taking chances with someones life is not worth the risk of driving a defective vehicle.
