I have a 97 Lincoln Town Car. Discovered a hydraulic brake lead near left rear wheel. Hydraulic lines run along frame, separated from body by body cushions. Appears that body cushions have compressed and...

You have several choices for brake lines. Probably your best is to buy a coil of brake line and run yourself another set. The better material and easier to bend is a nickel-copper blend. Volvo perfected the mix and it is suppose to survive a salt water bath for 18 years. You can reuse the line ends and then bend and flare the ends to match. A double crimp is needed for line ends so a flare kit with the double flare fixture is more desirable than resetting a single flare to make a second imprint.

Harbor Freight has some workable bending tools which should last long enough to do the job. Regular steel lines are cheaper but harder to bend.

There are preformed kits available, but suggest they may be designed to run in same crushed areas. You want to consider jacking the vehicle in the future. Run lines high on frame next to floor pan. Avoid catalytic converters. Run lines along inside facing surface of frame. Collision damage is usually on outside facing frame surface. This way brakes may survive side collision if you run the way I suggest.

2001 chevy venture van the brake pedal is soft and it goes down to the floor is it the m/c or the abs unit

The symptom you have is caused by a defective Master cylinder. Bench bleed the master before installing to keep air out of the ABS hydraulic control unit, if air gets in the unit the car will need to bleed of air using a special tool at the dealer. Do not get brake fluid on any painted surfaces or in your eyes, use proper safety gear. Only use special tubing Flare nut wrenches on the brake line fittings or you will round them off. Making up new lines is a whole other thing that requires special skills and tools.

Small hole in brake line near left rear tire

unfortunately the only thing you can do is replace it. no one makes pre formed lines so you can either remove the damaged one, and take it to a parts house, match the length, and fittings then take it home, bend it by hand which is very easy to do you don't need a bender so don't waste your money on one, and bleed the brakes. or you can track one down at a wrecking yard that came off the same rig. their are no way to patch these lines, I have temporarily fixed them before by completely cutting it in half where the hole is located, and then buying a brass union fitting at a local parts house and splicing it. I would not recommend this for a permanent fix

Left rear brake line rusted out. can I get a replacement brake line and how difficult to replace?

No you need the make a new one. The best way is to buy a coupler napa sells them. The line rusted out in a spot ware you can't even see it but i know. You will need some speical tools a tubeing cutter a torch propane is fine and a flareing tool. The coupler needs to be three feet long it will have flared ends and fittings on it. You must remove the fitting that attaches to the end of the brake line at the rear fitting unscrew this is what you need the torch for. Hit it for 30 secounds with heat and spray with wd 40 it will break loose. Then screw the new line in the fitting you don't need to tighten all the way then carefuly snake the line back over the axle don't crimp the line use something round and slowly shape it . Then cut the old line with the tubeing cutter toward the front of the vehicle you need a stright cut but make sure that the coupler is long enough to reach to cut, Then you need the flareing tool to flare the end you just cut off don't try to dubble flare single is fine.But before you flare this end you need to slide a fitting on because after its flared it woun't go over the new flare. Then you just screw everything in place and tighten. Then bleed the brakes a lot of times you can just bleed the rear drivers side cylinder then check the master cylinder resiovier for fluid level

I need the fittings on the radiator, where the lines from the transmission connect to for a 2006 Ford Explorer. can i buy these separately?

Using a backup wrench disconnect the fitting and oil line. Use a tubing cutter to cut the line short of the the crimp. Use a flaring tool to flare the cut ends. Install a length of 3/8 inch inside diameter oil cooler hose with hose clamps on the far side of the flares.

Crack in 1996 cherokee fuel line from gas tank. how do you replace it

find out what size the fuel line is then purchase two union fittings for that size, aquire a tubing flare tool in order to flare the ends of the 1 ft. length of tubing you will need to buy for the repair,cut out the damaged length with a tubing cutter making sure you have a clean oil drain pan handy because the gas may continue to flow from tank after the breach of the line,make sure there is an almost empty tank before attempting this job if possible, then take the nut and slide it over the cars cut fuel line that is to be repaired then choose the appropriate hole size on the flaring tool clamp it over the fuel line with about an 1/8 of an inch sticking out, then apply the flare making certain the nut is slid over the fuel line before flaring and it is facing the correct direction, after flaring remove the flaring tool and repeat as neccessary on the replacement section of tubing and on the other side of the fuel line to be repaired tighten up unions with two line wrenches at the same time and check for leaks.
