Brake lines probably broke. brakes stopped working suddenly.

There are many things other than brake lines that can cause braking loss. Investigation will reveal the issue. First, check fluid level in the Master Cylinder. If the level is normal, you don't have any broken lines/leaks. If the fluid is full and you have no brake pedal/braking power, chances are the Master Cylinder itself has failed. There are o-rings internal to the M/C that can fail, and when this happens, you will lose pressure to wheel cylinders/calipers and, as a result, lose your brakes.

If the fluid has leaked out, then you need to find out fro where. This is not too difficult normally. Fill the M/C with fluid and have someone press the brake pedal while observing the underside of the vehicle. You should see fluid dripping from somewhere, often near one of the wheels. You can have a leaking caliper/wheel cylinder, brake hose, or metal brake line. Once you determine what part has failed, you can purchase and replace the defective part. Brake calipers, wheel cylinders, and hoses are fairly simple to replace. Brake lines are more difficult, as they require shaping, cutting, and the creation of couplings. After repairs are done, the brake system must be refilled and all air bled from the system or braking will not be satisfactory.

1999 brakes pushed all the way to the floor don't work, and there is fluid leaking on drivers side rear

Sounds pretty cut and dry to me...You have a wheel cylinder, a caliper, or a brake line leaking. Find out which it is and fix it and your brakes will work again.

Brake paddle goes to the floor before it has brakes

Im guessing you have air in the lines, possibly from a leak in a caliper.. You need to inspect the brake lines and calipers to determine a leak. Most brake shops will do this for free...

My brake peddle is to the floor. Can hardly stop. Is it the brakeline/

Do not drive the vehicle until it has been repaired. You will endanger your own life and others. The problem could be worn out brake pads and brake shoes, leaking brake fluid at the wheel cylinders or calipers. Have you checked the brake fluid reservoir to see if it needs fluid? Make sure it is full of brake fluid. With the engine running, pump the brake pedal several times. If it comes back up, then slowly bleeds back down, youv;e either got air in the brake lines or you are leaking brake fluid. You need to have the brakes repaired as soon as possible.

I just changed the front disc brakes on my 2006 toyota tacoma and brake fluid is leaking from the brakes?? Why

If you replaced your brakes correctly you should not have any brake fluid. If you have seperated the caliper you may need to get the caliper repaired.

How do i repair a sticking brake pad

This might indicate a frozen caliper. When caliper piston gets rusty and you press the brake pedal, this gets stuck inside the caliper cylinder, and won't released, when you release the brake pedal. The cure is to replace the caliper. You can push out the caliper piston, with brutal force, and sand the rust, but you might have brake fluid leak. Hope this might help.

Brake fluid is leaking out the front left tire!

This is most likely a busted or separated line that is connected to the brake housing(on the front tire assembly). inspect the line for a tight fit. replace the line and coupler if found to be defective.

In most severe cases, the caliber may be faulty.
