    so my dad just came in with the second gen leaking bwhat seems to be break fluid out of the passenger front side. so i took of the wheel and asked him to pump the breaks, when he pumps the breaks the break fluid squirts out but from inside the caliper. anyone know what might be causing the problem?
    the truck is an 06 tacoma sport if you were wondering

    check the brake line leading to the caliper, but sounds like you need caliper rebuild or replacement. Don't forget to bleed the brakes after you do.

    you're fucked if you're leaking BREAK fluid

    if you're leaking BRAKE fluid, well that's a different story

    You don't need to figure it out.

    Just buy a rebuilt caliper.
