Depending on the condition of the line you could splice in a replacement line. You will need to flare your line where it is good at the front and back and that will determine your length.

Best way to repair rusted main brake line to rear of car. do i have to replace the whole line or can i splice it? its rusted above rear axel


It is best to replace the complete line, if it is rusted and you splice it , another leak spot might spring a leak, when you last expect it, better safe than sorry.

My 1989 z24 cavalier is leaking brake fluid out of the back right brake line. The brakes don't work and I need to get this fixed. What are some cheap ways to fix this leak?


the only cheap reliable way is to find what part of the line is leaking and go to either side where you can find good clean line (not rusty) and cut on each side, buy the correct size compression fittings on each side and then put the amount of brake line needed between the compression fittings and then bleed the brakes. really not that difficult with a general knowledge on how to put together a puzzle and a tubing cutter (small) and a couple wrenches.

My transmission line is leaking (2002) Trailblazer. Is there a way to patch it without changing out the whole line?


If it is in a spot where you can easily work on it, then you can cut the line and put in a compression fitting. The line needs to be relatively rust free for it to work properly. Cut the line and clean up the ends, slide the nut on first and then the ferrule and tighten.
If the line is too rusty to do this then you can replace it with a piece of steel brake line. Make sure it is the same diameter and length or a little longer. Also make sure the ends are the same, some are double flared and some are ballon flared. You need to know for sure because they can't be interchanged. Brake line won't come with the right ends to screw on but you should be able to get brass fittings the fix you up.
If you don't want to replace the whole line get a short piece of brake line that will span to 2 good sections of your current line but you will probably have to double flare your current line ends so the unions will go on. There aren't any fittings that have a compression fitting on 1 end and a union on the other.
Hope this helps.

How much does it cost for a brakeline from master cylinder


Depending on which brake line (front or rear) you can get a preformed brakeline from a chevy dealer, or possibly a parts store if an aftermarked fix is available. If not a local service center can usually patch in a new piece of line at the problem spot. The price of the line that is preformed will be quite expensive. If you have a "patch" job done to the line, the parts will be minimal, but the labor can add up as the service people will possibly have to bend and flare the lines to make them work.. which takes time, and they will enerally charge you a flat"hourly" rate for the service, which can add up as well.

96 Chevy Cavalier brake pedal to the floor


First check your brake fluid.
Either you have a failing brake booster, or you have developed a leak in one of your brake lines. If your brake line is leaking, it should be pretty evident, i.e. oily looking substance sprayed underneath the vehicle or in the wheel wells, if the booster is leaking (the large black/silver almost bowl shaped thing directly in front of the driver under the hood against the back wall) there will most likely be fluid dripping down the firewall below it, if your brake fluid is extremely low/empty, you probably have a leak, that could be at the booster or on a line, or even at the caliper/drum. If it is empty (which can make your ABS light, light up) then you have yourself a leak. Also, if the fluid is really low, you could try adding some, although you will have air in the lines if it was low enough to floor the brake, but you might be able to find the leak if you refill the fluid and cause it to spray from the leak again. Have someone watch under the vehicle while you do this.

1995 Chevy Cavalier Fluid leaking somewhere from hydro clutch line..need diagram that shows the system. There is a small container that is labeled Clutch that was empty.


There are only three parts to the system...the "container" that is the clutch master cylinder, a line between that and the clutch slave cylinder (which is the third part). It works same as your brakes ...step on the clutch and pressure from the master flows through the line to the slave. The slave moves the fork that pushes the clutch in to disengage it. Just like your brakes, any leak in any component will cause it not to work. Re-fill the master and have someone work the clutch and watch for leaks. Also inspect the area under the dash where the pedal rod goes through the firewall. if it's damp there the master is bad. After replacing whatever failed, you need to bleed the air from the system (should be a valve on the slave)

Need to replace brake lines on 1996 chevy cavalier


There isn't a "diagram" per se for this, but if you order the lines from the dealer they only fit one way.
