3/16" Brake line. It can be bought in 3'-5' lengths with fittings or in 25-50' spools. The straight lengths come with fittings. Make sure to purchase the japanese/metric style. This makes a difference in the threads of the fittings.

I have a leak in my fuel line from the motor to the gas tank in my 1998 Jeep Cheroke. I am told that this line is no longer available. What is my option to get this line fixed? Thanks

When you say get it fixed,that to me sounds like
your going to pay someone

There are 3 things I would never do

The most important is not to allow a professional shop
fabricate brake tubing
Second never allow anyone to work inside your door
on a window regular assy
The shops don't like that work & are butchers

The third is your option & that is repair fuel lines

Your correct, Dodge only stocks some parts for about
ten years
You can get any size metal tubing at the auto parts
store as you know
The plastic tubing at the rear, if that applies, is also avail
somewhere,not sure where,but Dorman has it & also
fuel repair kits,there you only buy the items you need

Wether you can find a parts store with Dorman Fuel
Repair Parts is questionable

Also the disconnect ends may be needed if you making
or duplicating a complete section that is rusted or leaking.

You basically have a fabrication job like you would for
say a rusted power steering tube leak
If you don't fabricate,weld(silver solder)or work on your
own car your in trouble

Those four jobs for some reason aren't what shops do
at all or with any skill what so ever

You will be replacing any steel braided fuel line with
rubber fuel injection hose.
Not regular fuel hose for a carburated vehicle

I have found the routing away from heat is the only
challange on design & install with the rubber hose,
thus why they used braided steel

Just so you know most all cars made in the last 50 years
never had fuel,power steering or trans lines avail for
replacement & if they offered anything it was only a few
years when you didn't need it

My entire point & advice to you is be careful on the fix

Get under there & be familiar with your vehicle & the leaks

It isn't about the cost,it's all about the fact mechanics are not
fabricators,welders & no shop can afford to that work
as it is time consuming & not their problem.

Need to replace all metal brake lines

There has never been brake line diagrams

Very little of value in factory manuals

You don't need diagrams, as your replacing what
is already there

You will be fabricating brake tubing you bought at
the auto parts store & can adjust the routing for ease
of bending etc & still use the original mounting points.

I'm I missing something you want to do?

How to replace rear shocks on a 86 Toyota celica gts?

This procedure can be found at You can register for free, listing make, model, year, and engine size. Find procedure under "repair guides". Good illustrations, too.
1. On liftback, remove rear speaker grilles. On coupe, remove suspension service hole cover or the speaker board (on rear deck by back window).

2Drum brakes or disc brakes? No matter: Do not break apart the brake lines. There is a clip on the strut to hold the brake line and it's connection to the rubber brake hose. Take the c-clip off and cut the brake line retainer with a hacksaw (careful of the brake line and hose). This way you won't have to worry about bleeding the brakes when done. Take the line out of the strut retainerclip. When re-installing, just use a zip tie to hod the brake line secure.
3. Loosen, but don't remove, the 19mm nut holding the suspension support to the strut (this is the larger center nut on top of strut at the deck by rear window.
4. Disconnect stabilizer bar at lower end of strut housing. You will need a 14mm wrench and a 3/16 (or equivalent metric size) allen wrench to hold the link steady while removing the nut.
5. Disconnect strut at the axle carrier-17mm size bolts.
6. At top, remove the three strut to body nuts-size 13mm., and remove the strut.
To put your new struts inside the coil spring, you will have to have a spring compressor. I don't have one, so after removing strut, took to a shop for that, cost was $20 for one side. Picked it up and installed it myself.
To install: Position assembly and tighten the upper strut to body nuts to 23 ft. lbs.
2. Tighten lower strut-to-carrier bolts to 119 ft. lbs..
3. Connect stabilizer bar to strut. Tighten the nut to 26 ft. lbs.
4. Tighten top strut holding nut to 36 ft. lbs. (the shop had already done this for me) and install dust cover.
5. Reconnect brake line and hose, and bleed the brakes, if you broke the line apart. If you didn't break the line apart and just cut the clip retainer, you will not have to bleed the brakes.
6. Lower the car and have rear wheel alignment checked.

If you have a spring compressor, and can do that procedure yourself, the instructions for it are found at, along with the above that I have outlined.

Brake line diagram

A brake tubing diagram, is something that you won't find

Factory Service Manuals ,only show a few pictures that are no use

You need to explain what vehicle you have,year,make ,model
and why your here

If the car is fairly old & some tubing is rusted & leaking, it has to be
duplicated from staight tubing you get at the part store
There is cutting,bending & flairing involved,to replace what is bad

If your just needing to know how the system as whole works,
then you have a bigger learning curve

So we need a lot of detail

If we write a page of suggestions,don't say the car is already
at the repair shop,then your wasting our time

Where the brake lines run under my truck

We get a few of these questions

You have to step back & see it from our perspective

You say you have fluid under the truck

Is it brake fluid?
If so,wouldn't you get under it with a light
& see where it is coming from vs: going to the internet?

You don't assume anything,you inspect,look it over,
then ask a question

If you can change calipesr,rotors,pads,etc,you can find a leak

There are no diagrams for brake tubing
You replace what is there,anyway you see fit

That is a self learned skill, to fabricate brake tubing
& a job repair shops don't want or do well

There is no ready made lines,only straight tubing at
parts store & fittings

I have a 1996 Chevrolet Cavalier Coupe 2.2L 4 Cylinder. I will be replacing my rear axle beam relatively soon, and was wondering what size drums and brake shoes i will be needing? I don't know if it...

First of all, you have no rear axle. Are you talking about the subframe or your hubs? As for drum size, I would go with the same size that are coming off. If you want to (and can) go bigger, you just need to make sure they have enough clearance inside your wheels. When ordering parts, you will be asking for: wheel cylinders, shoes, spring kit and drums. Note: the wheel cylinders you will only need to change if you are changing the SIZE of your drums or IF THEY LEAK. To see if they are good, pull your drums, smack your shoes from one side then to the other (using the palms of your hands) then back to center. Pull back the rubber boots and inspect for moisture. If they're dry, don't change the cylinders. If they're wet, they're leaking and need to be replaced. Now, if you do need to replace your wheel cylinder(s), you need to look in behind and assess the condition of the brake line fitting. If it looks rotten beyond all hell, you'll likely be into doing the brake line(s) as well. NOTE: when you actually do get into changin your brakes, do ONE SIDE AT A TIME. Drum brakes can be complex and if you take apart both sides then you have no reference as to how to put them back together!

I drive a 1995 Cadillac Seville SLS. My brakes have become unresponsive. they feel stiff, and I have to put both feet on the brakes and stand on it to slow the vehicle. pressing the brakes is...

I wouldn't install a used brake booster,but you could

You don't need instructions & a list of tools

If you & your friend together need that,you shouldn't
be doing that job

You will find 4 nuts in plain site, on the firewall holding it on.
You know enough to remove the brake tubing on the master
& can unbolt it ,to swap to different booster. Not sure
you can leave the brake lines in place until you try removing
the booster.

Before you do all that ,remove & check out the vacuum
check valve on the booster with the hose going to it

They are a somewhat common replaced item. You may
only get a couple in your life time,but they do fail somewhere
every day.

How do i replace the front calipers on my 2001 4runner,done lots of pad and rotor replacement but never any front calipers?thx.

Pretend like you're changing the rotors but don't take the rotors off. Instead, take the hydraulic line off the caliper using a line wrench. Have the new caliper ready and quickly hook the line up and tighten. Put the new caliper back on. The caliper comes with the piston collapsed, so very little bleeding is needed. Crack the bleeder open and see if it will gravity bleed. If nothing comes out, have someone push the pedal down while you loosen and then tighten the bleeder. Have them hold it down until you tighten to avoid drawing air into the caliper on the backstroke. Watch the reservoir carefully as the piston comes out--keep it full so you don't draw air into the lines. Repeat the pushing of the pedal and opening and closing the bleeder until no air comes out. Then continue pumping the pedal until the piston has closed the gap between the pads and rotor. Go to the other side and repeat. Please let me know if you have questions, and thanks for using FixYa.
