Question about 1999 Ford Econoline
The heater line that is going to the back heater is leaking. One of the four metal lines that snakes its way to the back of the vehicle has developed a hole. I have called several repair shops and they have sent me to the dealer for the part. The dealer says it will cost $300.00 just for the lines (they say I need to buy both lines that run the entire undercarriage). I have a friend of a friend that could possibly weld the hole but at this point I am thinking of just capping off the rear heater and telling the kids to wear extra socks and cuddly up in the back. Do you have any suggestions? Would welding it even work?
SOURCE: Bad brake lines
Any good auto parts store (or go online) will have different sizes and length brake lines. They won't have the exact factory line, you will have to use several different lengths with a junction (connector) between each length. They come in lengths of one foot up to about 5 feet, and yes, you should replace all lines if one has rusted through, as the others will fail soon. Check NAPA, Auto Zone, Advanced Auto Parts, JC Whitney, etc. countrycurt0

most of the time the auto parts can give you the right length.but if i had to gess your looking at 6to 7 feet long 8 ft at the most. it would be a good i dear to re place the line going to each wheel to . because those will be the next one to go good luck

There is no pressure when the engine is off. You don't have to do anything as far as putting pressure back in other than starting the engine.
Not knowing whats leaking and if its actually the lines then go get a replacement either at the parts house or the dealer.
