My 2003 KIA Rio is leaking brake fluid along with coolant. What could be the problem and how can I resolve it?

- leakes brake fluid.
- has over heated on me before, so possibly leaking coolant now.
- I dont run it alot, but when I do start it up it gives off an odd smell.

Usually brake leaks are from rear wheel cylinders or rubber lines that have failed. Look for wet spots on inner rear tires /lines. Is motor steaming/dripping out exhaust?

You will have to have the brake fluid system checked and have the cooling system checked. The to problems are not related
