Often when I see a brake fluid leak in this area it's due to a brake line that has rusted through due to corrosion caused by road salt, water, dirt, etc. I'm not sure if there's a splice in that area but I don't believe there is. Because this is potentially a very big safety issue I would have a service facility do the repairs on this one. Hope this helps a bit and good luck!

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.

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

read all that, and brakes for dummy;s first at amazon.

Brake Line Replacement on 1996 Olds Ciera

If you need to replace a brake line, you're going to have to bleed the line of air once you remove the broken one. I would highly suggest having an Autozone Tech. explain how to get that accomplished (they have always been very helpful to me).

The brake fluide is leaking I have filled up 3 time in 7 day how can I fix it

Look where the fluid is coming from under the car if it is in front of the car it is a front brake line issue these are easy to fix. look at the brake hoses on the left front and right front behind the tire these usually these lines dryrot and leak. the front steel brack line will usaully brake where they are mounted on the car body. If your brake line is leaking from the drivers door back it is a rear brake there is a single brake line that goes to the back and splits into two lines there is another rubber hose by where they split. you can fix brake lines with new steel line and compression fittings where you slide on and tighten the front is 1/8 size line and the back brakes are 3/16.

Rear Brake Line

Sounds like it is time to replace your brake lines, the steel ones under the car. You can usually go to any parts store and see if they do the loan a tool program and get a brake line flaring tool, remove the old line first to see if it is a bubble flare still on there or if someone has changed it to double flare. Then rebuild a new line and bleed the brakes. Definitely don't recommend driving it. The transmission lines may be in the same condition, those can be ordered from the dealership or a local Napa. The trans line on that should have a nut on the line to put a wrench on and remove it. Try something called PBlaster- works great for rusty fittings.

Brake line hose has hole in it

The only real solution to your problem is to replace the damaged line, bleed the brakes, and check for leaks after you are done. The line should go up to the frame, and go into a small metal bracket that is welded to the frame. The hose is usually held in place by a small metal clip, and a steel brake line will thread into the end of the hose assy. where it terminates in the frame mounted brakcet.
