      If the brake master cylinder leaking fluid - this would be brake fluid and not power steering fluid. The brake master cylinder leak indicates a worn master cylinder seal or piston.

      Check the various on-line vendors; www.autopartswarehouse.com, www.RockAuto.com, www.partsgeek.com, to list only a few. For example, they (RockAuto) list the brake master cylinder from around $42.00 for your vehicle.

      The brake master cylinder is easily replaced-check the 'How-To-Guides' feature on the AutoMD website.

      Short answer - it depends. Some recalls are safety related and as such, usually have no expiration date. Other recalls are for certain models, certain defects with certain conditions and may have an expiration date.
      For any recall question regarding applicability for your vehicle - best to first check with the local dealerships in your area.
