I was very fortunate to find this problem in my driveway. I checked all fluids and found the brake fluid slightly low. I filled the reservoir, and got into the truck with my wife. I started the engine and hit the Brake Pedal, It went to the floor. I got out and looked under the truck to see a large puddle of brake fluid near my left rear tire. My wife hit the brake and I could see the fluid squirting from the Main Steel Brake Line that runs behind the gas tank.

We had hauled a full load of fire wood one week earlier and parked the truck on the Garage pad when we finished unloading. All seemed well with the brakes at that time! Truck sat for a week before we needed it again.

This could have lead to a VERY SERIOUS ACCIDENT if this had happened a week earlier.

God does watch over us all!
