It shouldn't leak, some people can get it to work with DOT 5 and have no problems, but putting in the fluid recommended by the manufacturer is usually a safe bet. Take a look at the box or the instructions that came with the unit. They usually say what fluid is required, some actually say DOT 5 with void the warranty- it depends on the brand. I would try draining the system, replacing with DOT 3 or 4 and do a complete flushing and see how it works.
