No Brakes!

Lost brake fluid and now my car has no brakes anymore. My foot will go to the floor and nothing happens. How can I fix this?

Everything is intact now but I still dont have any pressure. Do I have to bleed the brakes?

If you lost fluid there has to be a break somewhere and yes you will need to bleed all 4 wheels. If you fill the reservoir you should see where it's leaking.

Don't matter, but usually longest line first . If you don't have ABS you can gravity bleed, it takes longer but if you're alone it's the only way.
