1992 Ford Explorer leaking fluid passenger side

Asked by Jul 12, 2017 at 01:42 AM about the 1992 Ford Explorer 4 Dr Eddie Bauer 4WD SUV

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

I am not a car person in terms of knowing how to
fix them up and knowing what's wrong. Any
assistance with this issue would be very helpful.
The pictures are the best way for me to explain it.  I
have a red brake light and a yellow rear antilock
light on, and as you can see in the video I have a
liquid leaking under the passenger side of my
vehicle. What liquid is leaking? And is it serious?  
expensive to fix?

It would only let me upload one photo, this is the photo of the lights I have on

Since the brake light and ABS light are on, that means more than likely the brake fluid sensor in the brake reservoir is detecting a low brake fluid level below the MAX line. From the pictures, it seems your are leaking brake fluid from a brake line, most probably rusted out. A new section can be spliced into the old section. Do not continue to drive it. Fill up the brake reservoir with Brake fluid DOT3 to the max line and drive it carefully or tow it to your nearest mechanic or brake shop for repair. It is serious and not expensive to fix. a couple hundred is my guess on cost.
