98 cavalier, has break line leak that appears to be coming from under the gas filler tube.. any idea what line this could be? can I block off the line until i can get it fixed?.

the brake pressure in the lines when applying the brakes will leak if you try to block the line can tell what line it is by having someone press on the brakes as you look at the line itself to see the which line the brake fluid is coming out.driving around with the brakes not working as intended can cost you more if you have and accident or hit someone,get them fixed properly,now or don`t drive it.

At the drivers rear tire the break lines come to a connection . it is leaking . what is it call and can it be repaired?

If you mean they come a spot at the wheel--that is the caliper. Or, the spot where it changes from a steel line to a flexible line? That would be the simply, the brake flex hose.

Either way, do something rather quickly, brake fluid loss is potentially dangerous.

ANd yes, of course either can be fixed quite easily

Need to know replacement time for a chevy 1500 master cylinder for brake system

This depends on the condition of the vehicle and corrosion amounts in your atmosphere, like salted road in winter, coastal climate, etc. Typically Chevy used a type of road tar to seal the old booster to the firewall and these are difficult to remove - I've used a 4 foot section of 2x4 to have leverage and not damage the booster or firewall. The brake system does not need to be opened so the master can be removed and flexed out of the way for space to do the booster - usually. On some models(depending on your climate) the lines are hardened and do not flex well at all, so the lines have to be removed, then the master, then the booster.. A flexible lined system should be about 1 1/2 hours and the non flex lines should be about 3, including bleeding the master and wheel cylinders and the calipers. Hope this helps and thanks for using Fixya!!

Keys locked in '91 4 door cavalier. have a slim jim but its not helping.

most people use a coat hanger for this but i found a better way
go to your parts store and get a stick of brake line (there cheap about $5.00)
then smash the brake line flat (place brake line on ground hit with hammer to flatten it)
then stick the brake line throw window or door frame and try and hit unlock button
the brake line is more rigid yet still flexible is why works better than a coat hannger

Busted brake line

Usually goes to a junction block on the axle. Measure it when you get it out. You don't have to duplicate it exactly but make sure that it dosen't rub on anything when axle moves. If you can't get exact length, you can use brass couplers. If line fitting on either wheel cylinder or junction is rusted in, cut the line flush with the fitting and use a six point socket on it. Make sure you bleed system when finished. (not just one wheel)

Brake pull

After you replaced the left caliper, did it still pull right? Check your flex hoses and make sure they have plenty of fluid going through it by bleeding the line. Check both sides this way. Make sure you don't have any leaks either. Look for any kinked or leaking hard lines. While it's up in the air, check you front hub assys. for movement. Check suspension and steering components as well.
