Drivers side front brake pads sticking, smoking bled allready no help


Sounds like you need new calipers and or the rubber portion of the brake line that goes from the steel brake line to the caliper. This part of the brake line (rubber part) can colapse inside acting as if there is a one way valve in the line keeping pressure on the caliper piston as if the brakes are applied.

My front pasenger metal break line is leaking badly


Then you need to replace it before it blows completely, because you will lose the brakes. It might still be avail at dealer or with the right tools you or a good mechanic can make your own. Check the other lines for rust also, because if one is going then the others may not be far behind

Abs light is on and sometimes brakes make noise like its stuck


I have had so much trouble with my brakes on my 2000 blazer it's not even funny. My rear brakes first started to stick after i changed the pads, so i then thought the caliper was sticking, changed the caliper, (both sides), still no help. finally, changed all the rubber lines on the rear and finally fixed it. NOW, the front is starting to stick, but like a dummy i didnt change the rubber lines first, i started to inspect the abs system, which never had the light on by the way, and finally took out the big fuse under the hood that controlled it, because it was activating itself at will. i have recently changed the driver rubber line which connects to the caliper, which is also new, both sides. was gonna change the pass side but ran out of money. my suggestion is to replace all calipers, all rubber lines. Then sell the damn thing as soon as possible before you really have to pay an arm and a leg for some serious repair. that is my plan in the next month. i heard toyota was the way to go, but idk. hope this helps. oh the rubber lines collapse and lets fluid travel one direction, (applies brakes), but doesnt let it flow back, (release), in case you was wondering how the rubber affected it. good luck

Broken Brake line


It's the same as any other car or truck. Simply cut the rubber off & there's a nut,like any other brake line. Loosen the lines as you would for any job. Now you say the lines are rusted,if they're that bad then you'll need to replace them from front to rear. This requires a tubing bender(hand held) & a doulble flare tool & unions. You can forget about that "expensive" part. It's a brake balance controler & never goes bad.

if u have u joints there should not any fluid near your bearing other than grease... if it is leaking anything other than that it is probably brake fluid... i would suggest checking your brake cylinder and brake line leading along side the passenger side

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.
