Expensive!! Someone asked for advice a couple of months ago, they ended up paying about $1,200.
It of course depends on your area and garage as to what u would pay. This is a labor intensive job, the brakes lines are not expensive, it's paying someone to do it that is. Any auto parts store have a selection of different diameter and length brake lines, as well as brass fittings to connect them together. If u do it yourself, you will save a ton of $, but laying on your back, with rust falling in your face as u try to loosen rusted lines is a challenge. I'm too cheap to pay someone, I've replaced all my brake lines on 2 trucks, don't look forward to having to do it again. Shop around and get several prices. Good Luck!

How to replace lines brake proportioning vale plumbing honda civic 1993


No clue what you're asking. Is it a '00 Silverado or a '93 Civic? I would find a prop valve and lines in the junkyard if you can. If the lines are rusty, just use the old ones to match up to new ones. The valve is usually OK unless someone puts motor oil or something not brake fluid in the system. If that's the case all teh calipers and wheel cylinders need replacing too.

Just bought 1995 lebarron radiater was really rusty inside and running hot i flushed it following directions on bottle discovered it leaks put bars stop leak silver powder in it drove fine from cali back...


Get a new radiator. Sounds like your old one is too far gone-will only keep giving you problems. Flush the whole coolant system, maybe a good strong back flush at a radiator shop or shop.
Bars stop leak is okay for an emergency, but most mechanics say don't use it as it can sure plug up a heater core.

Have rusty, coroded brake lines. need to replace. they are leaking. do i have to get brake lines specifically for the model or is there lines that can be fabricated from like a roll of line?


A brake specialist should be able to make up new lines from a roll and fit them for you which should be cheaper than trying to order the original parts frpm Dodge which are now probably no longer available.
Another option could be to source the lines from an auto salvage / wrecking yard that specialises in Dodge vehicles. .

I have a 91 toyota mr2 which need to change the clutch line from clutch master cylinder to slave cylinder. Where can i get the aftermarket parts? or i can just replace the rusty part, but where can i get...


I hate this particular project. Yes, you need metric ends at least. The problem of course is that auto parts stores don't carry long lines with metric ends. I ended up getting a "pipe flaring tool" so that I could put my own metric ends on the standard pipe. I then bought a short 7" metric line from a parts store, and cut it to use the ends on new standard size line. You will either want to get a nice one on loan from a friend or take the car to a shop. The cheap $30 tool I bought at one of the big auto parts stores didn't even work correctly out of the box. Ended up buying a $150-200 one that works great! Still a lot of work and expense if you are doing it yourself. The line is hard to get to once it gets up to the front of the car, so cutting out the bad rusty part and putting ends on is the easier do-it-yourself project - if you have the brake line flare tool. I would take it to a shop. Good luck!

Rear Brake Line


Sounds like it is time to replace your brake lines, the steel ones under the car. You can usually go to any parts store and see if they do the loan a tool program and get a brake line flaring tool, remove the old line first to see if it is a bubble flare still on there or if someone has changed it to double flare. Then rebuild a new line and bleed the brakes. Definitely don't recommend driving it. The transmission lines may be in the same condition, those can be ordered from the dealership or a local Napa. The trans line on that should have a nut on the line to put a wrench on and remove it. Try something called PBlaster- works great for rusty fittings.

I believe my brake fluid leaked out of a 24 year old rubber hose


should be one line going to the back and then it tee's,somewhere by the rearend,if the lines are all rusty,should replace them,make sure that its not the master cylinder.if you look underneath it,they leak from the bottom and run down the firewall or the fluid travels down one of the lines and drips somewhere else,brake lines are solid steel tubing with flare ends on them,they come in multiple lengths,they are straight sticks,you have to bend them according to the old line that you replace,the only rubber lines are the high pressure front caliper hoses,the lines are fairly resonable(local parts store)but a pain in the **** to bend and install,also if the insides of your back tires have brake fluid on them your wheel cylinders are leaking,good luck,hope this helps,aloha from maui todd0708

Brake line under master cylinder rusted and spraying fluid


Replacing rusty brake lines is a nasty job, but u can do it yourself and save a ton of money. A while back, someone else asked this question and decided to have a garage do it, and it cost $1200. U can purchase different lengths of brake line at any auto parts store, along with connectors to join the lines together. The dealer won't have pre-bent lines for a car that old, but u can buy the different lengths necessary to replace the rotted line. You'll have to follow the line to see where it ends, which may be quite a distance away. The problem is, by the time u have to replace a line, they all need to be changed. The labor cost is high, but u can purchase the lines at a low cost. Get the car uo on jack stands, soak the line connections w/ wd-40 or some penetrating oil for a day (or more if possible) to help in removal. Replace a section at a time w/ lines u bend to fit as u go.Good Luck
