there are no apparent leaks, and the brakes work fine, but every couple
of months the low brake fluid light goes on, the level is at the
minimum line....anyone else had this problem with a 95-97 Continental

It is normal, all disc brake cars have the brake fluid level drop
over time - there are no adjusters returning the pistons to the same
starting position like in drum brakes.
The pistons move out a millionth of an inch (or two) at a time as
the brake pads wear, and the system takes a little more fluid volume
as the pistons move out.

chck the seal between the booster and master cylinder, vacumm sucks in the
fluid and it ends up getting burned in the engine.
also have the complicated booster/air systme checked fluid could be pooling
in an area not normal open to exposure
