The steel line is always male...You can use heat on it and, always use a tubing wrench. You remove the steel line first, holding the fitting on the hose with another wrench, then remove the clip that holds the hose end to the bracket.

92 4runner everything been changed. Brakes, booster, line to booster. Still the same brakes are every hard to push. Can't figure it out any idea. .

Usually theres a plastic valve mounted on the booster thats connected to a vacuum source. Remove it from booster(they usually just pull out) & hose, then suck& blow on one end. Air should pass only one way. If it passes both ways the valve should be replaced. Check to c if hose holds vacuum by placing thumb on hose end to feel for suction (motor running) & to listen for hissing. Replace hose if suction is low &or hisses. Could be a vacuum leak elsewhere in wich case performance would suffer & idle would be eradical.

My 2007 fiat 2lt scudo model had new brake pads,discs,calipers.master cylinder replaced but brakes sill hard and ineffctive at times?

it is possible that it is the brake booster not getting vacuum assist. pull the hose off the booster and see if you have vacuum there by putting your finger over the end of the hose . If you have then replace the booster.

I replaced the caliper and the line is still leaking how to stop it from leaking

If it is the rubber line attaching to the caliper, you need to replace the short rubber hose. The hoses do wear out over time from all the flexing stress involved. All parts stores sell them.
If the leak is from a steel line, that section of line will have to be replaced. Not likely any GM dealer would still carry a parts line for a discontinued Cutlass, nor would any parts store ever carry brake line sections (except for the rubber hoses). One could find the same section from a salvage yard, or have a shop construct the broken section from brake line tubing, with proper fittings at each end.
In most cases, it is the rubber brake hose that develops leaks. So, back to the parts store. When replaced, the brakes will have to be bled, to get trapped air out of the brake lines.

Fuel line problem at fuel filter conector, 1994 Buick Century

I know the feeling well when this happens. I to did the same as you and also did the clamp, but found the best way was to yous a crimp tool for fuel lines and its not come off since its like the tool to put brake lines on to the calipers and then you put the rubber hose onto it and using a fuel line clip to hold the rubber in place. has lasted the last 5 years now with no problems.

Lost my brakes, due to a broken line. On the rear axle is a tee block feeding each wheel. There is a rubber line, that dead ends going no where? this is what lost my fluid.

Replace the rubber brake hose that goes to the Brass Block

Try Auto Parts Store first ,then a Dealer

Other end of hose comes from steel brake tubing
from front

Have 1995 jimmy truck and brakes are hard to push it sounds like air is leaking out of hose going into booster what to do???

The noise you hear is air going into the hose -- it's a vacuum hose to provide vacuum boost to the brakes. If the hose is cracked or broken, it needs to be replaced. If the hose is good, check to see if the fittings it connects to are intact.

What makes a 1999 mercury cougar pul to one side or the other when brakes are engaged. It is NOT the callipers. They have been replaced

bad wheel bearing, worn strut mount or ball joint can do this. also a bad master cylinder, broken/leaking brake line, contaminated brake fluid, bad porportional valve, or unevenly worn rotors can all cause this.

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.
