My name is mark and i've got a problem with my ford escort. It's old and rusted but I dont want to buy another car and wish to repair it myself. I was replacing the right rear sway bar but the jack fell through the rust and damaged what I think is my rear brake line ( green oil leaking). I would like someone to confirm me that it is the brake line that's busted and if so, how to repair it. I have close to no experience in repairing cars but I do have lots of tools. Please help me.

Thank you , mark

Drain brake fluid

check for fluid leaks at hoses , pipes and brake callipers and cylinder units. Pull the vacuum hose off the booster and check for brake fluid in the hose. (wet). Repair the fault-replace calliper leaks, replace wheel cylinders , replace brake lines and replace the brake booster.

Fill with brake fluid and bleed out starting at the longest line first and finishing at the shortest.

Repair brake lines

Please follow the instructions for replacing the brake lines
Instructions1 Inspect the brake line of each wheel and trace the line from the master cylinder to the wheel. The line material is rubber and holds up well from the standpoint of chemical stability to the brake fluid. Rubber lines need extremely close inspection as damage or wear may be difficult to see. At the first sign of wear, have the brake line replaced. It is a good practice to change all the brake lines at the same time.
2 Measure out the distance for each brake line. If you make it a practice to replace all the brake lines when one line shows any wear, you can use rubber tubing as the replacement lines. If you are not going to replace all of them, then you should definitely plan to replace the lines with stainless steel lines. The repairman will make a flared fitting on the tubing before the reassembly of the system.
3 Begin at the master cylinder and as you disconnect the old brake line, make the new connection with the replacement hose. Follow the path of each of the four lines all the way to the wheel and the end of the brake line. Repeat this process for each of the four brake lines.
4 Bleed each brake line to remove all the air and refill the system with brake fluid. Test your brakes before taking it out for a drive.

1998 Durango, replaced brake line that was rusted in two, (was long line under drivers side to rear) bled all four brakes, abs and brake light are now on and will not go off. Have read it could be rear...

Dear Brake Line....
I read your paragraph and if this brake light was never on previously to the brake line repair....then all it sounds like to me is that you have air enclosed in the braking system still. I would strongly advise that you bleed the braking system again....also bleed the master cylinder if you replaced a line of the master cylinder make this easier on you your local auto parts store makes what they call one man bleeders that you can buy then install to bleed the system then remove and replace with regular brake bleeders.....just do a quick double check also to make sure that the line you replaced doesn't have any brake fluid leaking out also...any questions get back to me.....HOPE I COULD HELP!!!!

Drivers side rear brake line has a hole in it near a bend just after the axle. Is there a repair kit with a flexible hose and clamps or compression fittings availabe?

The best, SAFEST, and cheapest way to fix anything that has to with your brakes is just replace the brake line.

The brake fluid you're losing doesn't only affect that brake it will affect al four of your brakes and if the leak expands you could mash the peddle one time and have absolutely no brakes at all.

Brake lines aren't that much and it shoud take you under an hour to change it.

I hope this helps you out.

Thanks for letting ya

The brake line between the rear wheels is leaking brake fluid and my brake pad is right to the floor before they work? What kinds of tools and brake lines do I need to fix it?

if its the bubber line you can replace it with a socket set or a line wrench if its the rear its probably al steel line to the caliper ? you will need a tube cutter and some wrenchs< and a tube bender? if its just a small break you can cut a section of the tube out and buy a new tube with 2 compression unions 1 on each end and you simply slide the tube over the end and tighten? it may be cheaper and safer to just let your local tech repair this its no big deal and he can bleed the system afterwards to be safe ? not worth your safety to chance this type repair ? should cost less than $100 ? hope this helps

1996 jeep cherokee brake fluid on right back tire.

You may have a brake line that has rusted through. Check with friends and relatives to see who can recommend a garage they trust and would go to for repairs themselves. The problem is that if the brake line did rust through, it usually means others should be replaced before they leak, as you can lose your brakes. The brake lines aren't expensive, but the labor to replace most or all of them is. Good luck, hope you can find a trustworthy repair shop.
