Re: 89 Bronco II - Wont go into gear. Leaking Fluid Reservoir

The clutch master cylinder will be at the other end of the hose. That or the slave cylinder is likely the source of the leak.

The master cylinder could be leaking inside the firewall; usually behind the carpet.

I would doubt the reservoir would leak unless you could see a crack.

The mess on the firewall could be from the PO spilling fluid refilling the reservoir.

Check the master and slave cylinders for leaks.

Thanks for the help. I'm going to look further, is there an easy way to tell if its either the master or slave thats bad?

Ill obviously watch it while someone pumps it to see where fluid comes out, but other than that?

You be able to see stains on either if they have a leak.

Take a look around the master cylinder. It could be leaking where the rod enters it from the pedal.

The slave looks to be a concentric type. So look at the transmission bell housing to see if brake fluid is dripping from bottom.
