Question about 1996 Cadillac DeVille
The master cylinder needed fluid; brakes lines was check and they are rusted.do they have to be replace all in genera and how many brake lines does it have on 97 Cadillac deville and what will the cost be to fix
Metal brake lines rust with age, become potted & leak fluid. Replace with copper pipe, is only marginally more expensive, the labour to replace will be the same but copper wont rust, so future cost saving & safety. Job is easy enough to do yourself, unscrew where it joins master cylinder, then follow line back, clipping it out from any securing clips, unscrew other end, coil up & take to motorfactors, ask them to make a copper brakepipe exactly like your old one, dont worry if you snap pipe during removal, take all bits with you so correct length can be gauged. Copper is very flexible & can be bent to shape when you refit. Make sure you have new brake fluid to bleed your system with after replacement.

You did not say if a break line is leaking, i'am gussing one or more are, if thats the case, there is no sequence on changing them,just they have to be bleed when you do change one or more of them to get the air out of the system, they will usely spring a leak wearever there is a clamp that holds them in place. There are one line to each wheel and a main line that runs from the front to the rear, there are differant costs to this depending on how many lines are leaking and if you do it yourself or have it hired done.
