Question about 1991 Oldsmobile Cutlass Ciera
Remove and replace the wheel cylinders on both rear wheels as it is generally not a good idea to try and reclaim them. (If one is leaking then the other one will be seeping as well). As there will be oil on the linings it is necessary to replace them as well or you will have grabbing brakes/ no brakes and side skids in heavy braking

As the other readers stated here..... locate the leak, if it's in the line, replace the line. If it's the wheel cylinder, replace the wheel cylinder. Most likely if the wheel cylinder is shot, the line will break trying to get it detached from the wheel cylinder, you'll have to fix the line anyway. Then you have to bleed the brakes all the way around the car.

Depends on where it is leaking. Most cars have a metal line, if this is leaking you can pinch it with pliers or vise grip. Most disc brake system rubber hose, if this is leaking, you are mostly out of luck except to pinch the metal line in which case you now have two parts to be replaced. If it is leaking in brake cylinder itself, again you can only pinch the metal line.
