I have a 94 Chevy Lumina Sedan 200,000 miles. My brakes were going, now I have no brakes and there is fluid on the ground by the one brake that was the worst. Will new brake pads fix this problem or is it my serious then that?

[u:019cf3cb30]Do not drive the vehicle untill the brakes are repaired.[/u:019cf3cb30]
A fluid leak is all it takes to make the entire braking system useless.

You need to have the brake line, hose, fitting, caliper, or wheel cylinder replaced or rebuilt. Then the system must be bled to purge any unwanted air.

If your car won't start you call a tow truck If it won't stop you call an ambulance or worse.
Sound just like my dad. It still is good advice.

If you are not mechanically able to attempt this type of repair here is a good link to find someone that is.
