You can splice it, use a tube cutter and cut at a sextion where the line is good, use hi strenght fuel injection hose and clamps, use two clamps at each end, and fasten against vibration

I have a 2003 Hyaundi Sante Fe that developed a gas leak. I can see the line that has a pinhole in it. Can I cut out the bad part and splice this?

most times that will not work. the pressure is to high. I do not advise it. replace the whole section till you get to a mechanical junction fuel leaks cause fire and explosions.

Can the orifice tube on a 2002 mustang be repaired with kit

You do not cut & splice into any A/C System

You replace with the oe type parts only when
they fail/leak

The orifice is a screen inside the hose connection
& can be cleaned,not necessary to always replace

Gas line leaking (dripping) on passenger side. I reached under to see where the leak originates and I feel a piece of rubber, feels like some sort of connector, soaked in gas. I had some exhaust work done...

sounds like a previous owner used a hose splice to fix a leak. get it up in the air and see if you can do the same thing. this time tell the guy you want fuel line for a 94 and double clamp it on. otherwise run a whole new fuel line. note that fuel line for newer cars is much higher pressure than the good old stuff pre 90s which went to a mechanical pump on the side of the engine

Best way to repair rusted main brake line to rear of car. do i have to replace the whole line or can i splice it? its rusted above rear axel

It is best to replace the complete line, if it is rusted and you splice it , another leak spot might spring a leak, when you last expect it, better safe than sorry.

Rear brake line developed a leak. can i just replace the small broken section or do i need to replace the whole line?

you can replace only the short section if you like using compression connector and they are easy to find them at the hardware store,or do the whole line since they are no really expensive,the whole deal would cost aroun 20 or 25 bucks (parts only)

Sounds like you are rusted out. Even the factory parts are not that expensive and they are properly bent. Check the dealer.
If substituting aftermarket piping you want to either replace the bad section with a splice or the whole piece. Notice the end connections and where you will attach the replacements.
Notice the routing of the gas line away from hot exhaust parts and areas a lift jack will crush your line. Notice what moves close to the fuel line to allow for travel.

You may be able to splice a piece of rubber fuel line into a metal line with a few clamps.

I have seen everything you will need at Autozone and Oreillys and similar stores with the exception of Factory parts.

There is a leak in my chevy cavalier brake line

Depending on the condition of the line you could splice in a replacement line. You will need to flare your line where it is good at the front and back and that will determine your length.
