    My brakes were working fine and I saw no spills or leakage at least in my garage. The pedal now goes right to floor and I have no brakes :( and no clue where to start? Thanks !!

    Hate that for you. Brakes can be intimidating, but in general they are sort of simple.
    Put fluid back in, have a friend pump the brakes and hold, then look around the vehicle to determine the leak. Check soft hoses first. They are near the brake drums and disks. Hard lines could be bad as well, look for leaks near rusty spots. Last would be the brake caliper or wheel cylinders. They are right on the wheel/brake assembly. You will need a tutorial on YouTube or manual to rebuild those, but it is doable.
