1998 Ford Thunderbird mileage: 83,500. I have a leak in my brake fluid (master cylinder). Is there anyway possible I could patch it up other than replacing it. The amount to replace is over $1,200.00 anything that could be done please advise. Thank you.

We do not recommend patching anything in the brake system. $1200.00 sounds rather steep for a master cylinder.

Visit your friendly neighborhood auto salvage yard & inquire about a used 1 for your car. Max repair including parts shouldn't exceed 2-3 hundred $$$ !

97 WAS THE LAST YEAR FOR THE OLD THUNDERBIRD
NEW MASTER CYLINDER FOR THE 1997 FORD THUNDERBIRD IS ABOUT $40 TO $60
MAKE SURE ITS THE MASTER CYLINDER THAT THEY GAVE YOU A PRICE FOR
AND IF SO SUGGEST THAT YOU GET ANOTHER OPINION
