Is the brake warning light illuminating on your Mitsubishi Outlander? Learn how to fix the problem by checking the brake fluid level and adding brake fluid to your Mitsubishi Outlander. This guide provides instructions on checking the brake fluid level on any Mitsubishi vehicle.
What you will need
- Brake Fluid
* Most Mitsubishi vehicles require DOT 4 brake fluid.
- Park the vehicle. Turn off the ignition and set the parking brakes.
- Pull the hood release under the dashboard and open the hood.
- Locate the brake master cylinder reservoir in the engine bay. The brake reservoir is mounted near the firewall directly in front of the driver.
- Look at the reservoir from the outside to determine the current level. The brake fluid level should be between the MIN and MAX marks.
- If the level is below the MIN mark, remove the cap.
- Add brake fluid to bring the level between the MIN and MAX marks.
These instructions apply to all Mitsubishi vehicles, including Galant, Eclipse, Outlander, and Montero.
Mitsubishi Brake Fluid Type
Most Mitsubishi vehicles, such as Lancer and Outlander, require DOT 4 brake fluid. The brake fluid does not have to come from Mitsubishi. Any DOT 4 store-bought brake fluid will work. If you are unsure what brake fluid your Mitsubishi uses, look at the reservoir cap. It will say if your Mitsubishi requires DOT 3 or DOT 4 brake fluid.
