You will have frount breaks but not the best thing to do by blocking the rear off. You real should put a new line on and bleed the rear breaks. If for some unknow reason you got in an accident bad thing could come from blocking the break line.

do you have a self bleeder kit? first off, you have to bleed the master cyl back into its self and the combination valve before you go to the wheels. when you do that, I think you will find that you have air in the lines. disconnect both brake lines from the master cyl and put the bleeder kit fittings on the master cyl, then put the rubber tubing with the kit on the fittings and submerge it in the brake reservoir. make sure its full. then pump the pedal until you get a hard pedal. if that is the case, reconnect the lines to the master, then have an assistant pump up the brake pedal with the engine off, and bleed the combination valve which should be connected to the master by steel tubing. pump it up, then hold it down, and crack the fittings loose, one at a time until the pedal goes about half way down, but do not release the brake pedal until the line is tight again, otherwise you will **** air in the lines. after you do all that, go to the farthest caliper or wheel cylynder from the master and bleed that with the same technique,and dont release the pedal until you close the bleeder screw. unless you have a major prob, this will work.

SOURCE: leaking brake fluid from rear driver side brake

They don't make diagrams for brake lines. The lines are sold in bulk. You need to measure and duplicate the bends in the orignal lines and cut/flare the lines yourself. You will need a tubing cutter, flare tool and tubing bender.

Air bag pump is running, new airbags . rear bags wont air up.


These Lincoln air suspensions are terrible. I have converted many over to coil springs at a fraction of the cost of replacing/repairing the bags. If the rear bags don't inflate, there is a broken air line to the bags or the bags are leaking

Brake fluid leaking out of cylinder


mike the resevoir is plastic and over the years could have fractured giving a small leak. in this case you'll need to replace the resevoir. before you do this you really need to be sure its not coming from somewhere else in the line. i take it you have wiped down the lines thoroughly, filled the resevoir and pinpointed the leak area. most times its in the stainless steel lines themselves at a connection or even where a rusty mounting clip has coroded through the line.

If it's a rusty brake line that's leaking you'd best replace the whole brake line system (all 4 wheels) for your safety. Fuel lines have the same problem. These are made out of steel and rust fast due
to calcium chloride used on the roads in winter.
Unless you're familiar with routing and installing connectors on these lines I suggest you let a pro do the job. It ain't as easy as it looks.

You need to crawl under the truck and inspect each brake line for leaks. You also need to check wheel cylinders and calipers. The chances are pretty good that you will find a small leak in a line or a wheel cylinder leaking, pay close attention to the rear of the truck because that is normally where these problems occur. Hope this helps.

I have a 2000 ford ranger thats leaking brake fluid from the rear everytime i hit the brakes it shoots fluid from the little thing in the back that splits the brake line i was wandering what the piece is...


It is called a splitter block. But it is more likely to be a bad line going into the block. Check to see if and of the lines going into the block are rusty and start with that line. Clean it off as good as you can and have someone press the brake pedal while you look to see exactly where the fluid is leaking from. If one of the lines is leaking, its best to replace all of them as another one will be leaking soon. If it is in fact the splitter block, it will be a dealer item only. 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
