    Question
    HI. I have fluid leaking from under my dash.(it feels oilly and is brown) it is dripping down on my accelerator and brake pedals. it seems to be coming from somewhere above the steering wheel. it is not dripping too much but, there is enough to cause me concern. I feel that is brake fluid but, I can't figure out why it would be coming from so high up(maybe a line?) I have been monitoring my fluid levels and so far nothing seems to be low. the car is a 1997 toyota tacoma 4cyl exCab 177K. any assistance would be greatly appreciated.
    Love my Toy!

    Fluid from brake reservoir, or clutch reservoir, or heater core leak/hose connections.

    Those are your possibilities. Check your fluid levels.

    The brake fluid will easily flow from your clutch master down to the floor. Go under there with a flashlight and pinpoint where it's coming from.
