Well I have run into an interesting situation.

Since I bought my car I've had what appears to be brake fluid leaking in the dash and puddling on the floor. I've cleaned things up a bit and after a few weeks the puddle comes back. Recently the puddle has gotten alot worse.

My first instinct is that the brake booster is leaking into the car. Here's the odd part though. The brake pedal/rod and everything you'd expect to be soaked are bone dry and look like they've never been wet. The fluid is actually dripping off the bottom of the dash itself. I check the brake fluid on a regular basis and the fluid level has never changed. Also the fluid in the master is clean while the fluid on the floor is burnt and dark. My fear is that I'm picking up water and displacing the brake fluid through the booster, but I don't know exactly how to check.

If anyone out there would be willing to help me check things out on Saturday I'd greatly appreciate it

I was starting to get the impression it was the master. I just can't figure out why the fluid level doesn't drop even though it's leaking. I'm hoping to get into the dash tomorrow and see exactly what I'm dealing with.

I just came across something interesting. My car may have the hydroboost system which uses power steering fluid to provide the hydro part. It would make sense that a leaking booster would dump fluid on the floor. I never thought to see if I'm loosing power steering fluid so that's something to look into.
