Brake Line Broke

Does anyone know if the Brake Lines in a 1998 Ford Taurus are plastic or metal? The brake line is leaking fluid in the front by the driver side door and we are having a hard time finding a replacement line.

Brake diagram


cause by:
1: breach in system, see DOT3/4 fluid on pavement or on fire wall
next to MC? front and Rear !!! on inside of tire walls?
2: MC end of lie.
got ABS , you did not say.
my guess, not , it started in 1996, but some cars 91.(have one)

3: air in the system. end to end.
usually caused by removing parts, and not bleeding system

MC = master cyclinder the pedal connects to.

My 1998 Ford Taurus has a visible wire hanging under the driver's side. Can anyone ID it? THANKS!

Wire or steel cable? Parking brake cable?

This has nothing to do with your problem, but check the brake lines for rust in that same area. It is a common problem.

The brake light came on ,on my 2006 Ford Taurus. Where do I check the brake fluid level?

You can find the brake fluid reservoir under the hood on the drivers side by the firewall on the master cylinder. Make sure you refill with the same type of brake fluid as they are not all compatible. The top of the reservoir will let you know what type of fluid you should use. Ex..DOT III, DOT IV, DOT V
