Hello I’m 17 and know absolutely nothing about cars. I bought my thunderbird and had it fixed up i.e new spark plugs, new brake lines, new brake fluid reservoir, etc. I’ve done a lot to get it running. However a few months in owning the car I noticed a slurping noise down by the petals. I started inspecting and noticed that a black oil like fluid was dripping from a greenish disk under the steering column. The fluid will shoot out when I shift into and out of my parking gear. This is an automatic transmission btw. A few more months my brakes were spongy. That’s when I replaced the brake fluid reservoir. The brakes work but the fluid still comes out. I did even more digging and discovered that it spits more oily stuff when I use the ebrake. When engaged or at the moment of pressing it down you hear the slurp noise then when I use the manual release it spits oil. I decided to test the ebrake itself. I followed the original manual that came with the car, pressing the foot brake then firmly press or step on the ebrake. With the ebrake engaged I shifted the car out of park to see if the emergency brake would hold. Btw when I engaged the ebrake the brake light on my dash turned red. However when I shifted the transmission out of park with the parking brake on it just continued to roll. I was looking all of to figure out what the heck is leaking but no luck. I just want the floor mat not to be slippery anymore. Please help give me an idea on what’s happening or any clues. I love my car and I want to fix it.
