I do not know where your brake fluid is going.


The clicking is normal, that is the more than likely the "release" to let the car know you pushed in brake so you can shift out of park.

gotta be a leak somewhere. if the fluid's disappearing then it's leaking. could have damaged a caliper or something doing the brake job. the rear calipers tend to seep when they get old, unless you have drums. did you check your wheel cylinders? pull off the drum and pull back the little booties on the wheel cylinders. if there's any fluid in there you've found your leak.

the clicking u hear is called the BTS sensor...its supposed to ONLY do it when u press the brake to shift out of park...if it does it everytime u press the brake, u need to get the BTS replaced...does it click when u press it and then again when u let off the brake? Mine did that and after I replaced the BTS its never done it again...by the way BTS stands for Brake To Shift (thats the actual name for it)
