It could be but another easy way of repairing this is to look on craigslist for someone parting out an Intrepid...Stratus will work also....quite a few years too. Last option to use is the junkyard....dealership will cost some money but you can also get a new one made from like NAPA or local garage.

what are you doing, do tell the JOB !
brake job, new calipers, what. or that and found rusty lines
why not just say>? so we can be on same page. as you.

can i buy a space, how much?
im under the car.
im and the front right brake lines
there are 2, one is rubber and one is steel.
which one.?
lines are steel and hoses are rubber like organics.
which?

the 96, ZJ
the FSM covers all this., for free here. page 11 in brakes.

if you have to ask that , that tells me you've never done brakes
nor read any books on it, why not read first then ask.
nor ASE classes? SAFETY FIRST , your's and mine on road.

the steel lines have fittings on the end, hex head
and we use special (sold in all autostores on earth) brake box wrenches with cut outs. for lines
this takes off the fittings with NO DAMAGE>
the hoses are more tricky.
lets say they are cracked, the rubber
i disconnect the steel line to the hose input and stuff a
golf tee, in the end or again, special tools for brakes.
i then unclamp the rear hose, clamp at frame
then the hose at the caliper.
reverse this and bleed.

end story

What special tool is need to bleed brakes on 1999 gmc sierra? Had to replace all lines due to rust. I can only get the front driver side to bleed. The brake peddle is like steeping on steel. ...


You can actually bleed each caliper at the brake line connection to the caliper...you will need someone to depress the brake pedal, or you can borrow the auto bleed brake pedal tool from your local auto parts store...sounds like you can fix this yourself...the symptom says..."air in lines"...Hope this helps.

Have rusty, coroded brake lines. need to replace. they are leaking. do i have to get brake lines specifically for the model or is there lines that can be fabricated from like a roll of line?


A brake specialist should be able to make up new lines from a roll and fit them for you which should be cheaper than trying to order the original parts frpm Dodge which are now probably no longer available.
Another option could be to source the lines from an auto salvage / wrecking yard that specialises in Dodge vehicles. .

Having problems with my brakes on a 1997 Oldsmobile 88. Looks like a steel brake line is rusted out between the front and rear tires. That's where the leak seems to be coming from. Any ideas on how much...


very cheep fix. First remove the old leaky line and determine how much line you will need. The line is usually sold unbent. You will have to bend the line. I usually lay the old line right beside the new so i have a refference of where i need to make the bends. You probably wont need a bender, most cars come with 3/16 brake line and you can bend that by hand. You will however need a speical tool to cut the correct length. Just take the old one with you when you when you get ready to buy new line. They will get you everything you need. Should be around 50 bucks to fix it yourself. You will have to bleed the brakes after you install the new line though. Good Luck

Brake line is leaking in front of the driver side rear wheel where the hose meets a bracket, is this bracket a connecter or just a holder for the lines?


Bracket should be welded to body.
Rubber Hose goes into it ,and is held with a clip.
If you have a rusted steel line,you will have to buy the line,bend and flair yourself,to duplicate the rusted out one.

I have a 2000 chevy blazer. had to short fix left rear brake line with hose and clamps. bled air from that side, brakes were soft in the pedal. checked right rear for any air had none. brakes still feel...


do not drive the vehicle. remove the hoze. replace it with steel line. rubber hoses are not meant for the high pressures of brake lines. it is expanding when you press the brake pedal. very unsafe.

The master cylinder brake lines broke before the proportion valve


Obviously you have a bunch of badly rusted lines. Better they failed while you were working on them rather than driving down the road! Carefully inspect the remainder of the lines and if in similar condition to the ones that failed, you need to replace them. When finished and system is tight, then bleed out system. (check it twice to ensure all air is gone.)

I replaced all the brake lines then the bleeder valve(I am not sure of the actual name) cracked and exploded when I went to bleed the lines how do I fix it without going to a repair shop.


WHEN YOU BLEED THE LINES, IT WILL CRACK AND POP..ITS GETTING ALL THE AIR OUT ON THE LINES..START WITH THE PASS.SIDE REAR, GO TO THE DRIVER SIDE REAR, THEN PASS. SIDE FRONT THEN DRIVER SIDE FRONT..YOU HAVE TO START WITH THE WHEEL THE LONGEST DISTANCE FROM THE MASTER CYLDER.. HAVE SOME ONE THE PUMP THE BRAKES THREE OR FOUR TIMES, ON FOUR TIME HAVE THEM TO HOLD THE PEDAL DOWN, THEN LOOSEN THE BLEEDER VALVE (WITH THERE FOOT STILL ON THE PEDAL) AFTER YOU LOOSEN TIGHTEN BACK UP AND REPEAT THREE OR FOUR TIMES ON EACH WHEEL.. BE SURE TO START WITH PASS. SIDE REAR, SO ON AND SO FOURTH.. THIS WILL FIX YOUR PROBLEM..GOOD LUCK KEITH...
