What is going on?

Last week I took the truck in for what appeared to be a brake fluid leak.

After looking it over they determined it was not brake fluid. They emailed "Engineering" and they had no idea what it could have been and stated there are no fluids or oil inside the cab. There fix was to clean it up and see if it comes back.

Just wondering if anyone else had this happen to them?

I thought I read about this somewhere, and it was just that they over greased the brake pedal.

That is what the dealership is thinking, something during the assembly more than likely.

I know some grease will run like an oil when it gets hot (from heater etc...). Can you see any signs of some thing that looks like it had heavy oil on it? Maybe steering column or some thing?

I looked and it appeared there was oil on the bracket of the brake peddle and push rod.

I've heard they over-greased the sliding pedal assembly and it drips every now and then.

I hate to sat it but you might just have to clean every thing real good and watch it. It could be a seap that finally built up enough on that bracket to drip. If you clean it real good and in a day or two the bracket/pedal is wet again then I would guess the seal is going bad on the back of the brake chamber(which on ours I believe is the Hydroboost)

Yep I have noticed some leaking on my floor too. I wasn't worried about it but I will ask about it next time I take my truck in.

Yeap Over Greased Read about this a Few Times!

I Just Re-greased my trailer bearings,and Installed Buddy bearings on all four,I noticed that there was a Blueish Liquid leaking out the Buddy bearing from the grease,i'm sure this is the same thing the brake Pedal is doing....

The Grease i'm usen is Good stuff so Maybe thats a Good sign when it Leaks the liquid...

Yeah my emergency brake dripped grease once. Cleaned it up and it's been fine. Lucky it didn't drip on your carpet.
