Hi, 3 months ago I put brake fluid in my car up to the full line, now the fluid is almost in the minimum line. I want to know if that's normal or I need to go to the mechanic and get it checked up.

Thanks.

Sounds like you got a leaking wheel cylinder or the master cylinder it is a contained system fluid pushes back and forth as apply your brakes and if your losing fluid its leaking somewhere so yes I would say get it inspected brake fluid contaminates other brake parts such a s shoes or pads then your replacing more
