My 88 9000 Turbo has no brakes. When you pour brake fluid in something starts buzzing and the fluid leeks completely out the bottom, and I don't know where its from. Does anyone know what could be the problem?

Do you have ABS? If so, could be the ABS pump &/or ABS reservoir leaking big time. These build up a very high pressure to give you the servo assistance & anti-lock. You may be lucky & it could just be a split pipe - if not then it is very expensive.........both are buried in the depths at the back of the engine, up against the lower bulkhead. Of course if you don't have ABS then it could be something simple like a brake servo seal gone (cheap, compared to and ABS pump)

The car does have ABS and ever since I bought the car the anti-lock light has been on but no one could figure out why. The brakes have been fine though for about 2 years.
