Check behind the tires as suggested but also take out your driver side
carpet and look for either fluid in the carpet or signs of blistered paint
in the floor pan where the fluid has stripped it. If I ever had a leak that
was the first place I looked. It means your master cylinder is leaking.
What kind of fluid do you use? If you ever used DOT3 you need to replace
every seal in the system.
