You will need to take a look at the line from front to rear, this job can get big fast, and if you have ABS (anti locking brakes ) it makes it harder, if you can see a good part of the line where it can be cut and flared with an end then cut it there, the black box is just a plastic cover. that cover holds the dirt and water and makes the lines rust sooner, i do these lines all the time and most of the time i run new lines from front to the rear brake hose , most of the time if there is another weak spot then you will be doing the job again and again.

you will need brake line a flaring tool, a bubble or double flaring tool to make the line ends and fittings and connectors, you will need to bend the line by hand and when your done you will need to bleed the brake system.

SOURCE: replacing front driver side (F150) brake line (rubber hose)

Brake fluid is highly corrosive. If you can't get the line loose on the frame side then I would suggest replacing the hard line as well coming from the master cylinder. Or if you have a flaring tool you could cut the hard line just behind the rubber and put a new fitting on it. Pretty easy if you have the tool. Essentially you will wind up kinking or breaking the hard line anyway if the fitting won't come loose easy.

SOURCE: rear brake line that runs from caliper to frame needs replaced

You can purchase different size (diameter) and length brake lines at an auto parts store. They are inexpensive. The lines are already 'flared' to be connected to another line, all you have to do is disconnect the old line, and attach the new one. Spray the connections several times a day for a couple of days to make them easier to separate. you will also need to bleed air out of the replaced section for the brakes to work properly.

SOURCE: brake lines rusted under car for back brakes, is

You do have 2 lines to the rear on the Lincoln. Both should be replaced if they are rusted out. After replacing the lines will need to be bled of all the air.

My brake lights are dim and signal works slowly. but tail lights dont work at when lights are turned on. how do i fix this?


The first thing to do is pull the tail lights from the box and check the ground wires to be sure they are still good. Make sure there isn't any bare wire rubbing on the box or light frame. If everything looks good there crawl under the truck and check the plug-in for the wire harness itself. You'll find it on the driver's side at the back of the frame. Take it apart and check for a greenish color on the contacts or wires. That is corrosion and needs to be cleaned off. Also give each wire a little tug and make sure they are not rotting off the plug-in. Also check the back side of the plugs for corrosion. There is a ground on the frame from the wire harness, make sure it is still good. Take it off and clean it up as well as the frame before you put it back on. Hope this helps.

97 Tarus wont start


recheck spark by putting a plug into one of the plug wires and place on valve cover, crank engine and see saprk in that plug. check fuel pressure during cranking to verify fuel supply. If you have no fuel pressure check fuses and fuel pump relay, in fuse box and power distribution box under the hood. If all are good check for power at the fuel pump connector with the key in start position, in run position the power will only be there for about 5 seconds, you are correct with fuel and spark it should run, let me know what you find
