Default No fluid the the MC reservoir

Need I be concerned. I quest when we went away for several months and came back the garage door opener was having some problems so I had to take the thunderbird out of the garage for him to work on it.I hardly had any braking to the car. I don't really no how mauch fluid I had in there last year so I filled it up too the nipple. So it has held for about three weeks now without it diminishing down. I was told the less air in the reservoir the better Iam. My pads still have alotof wear to them left. Should I be concerned still . I had new wheel cylinders put on about 5 years ago. Thanks Larry

If the fluid went down too far you will have air in the lines which you will have to get out by bleeding the system. Have you driven the car any distance to test the brakes. If they stop fine and the pedal is high then you are ok.
