Question about 1993 Ford F150 SuperCab

1 Answer

I have a 1993 F150 4x4 that blew a brake line on the drivers side. The leak seems to be coming from a cylinder that is about 2 1/2" in dia. and about 3' long???? Is this part of the brake line or just dripping on it??? It looks to be the leak. Thank you Jim Oates

If it is on the rear on the truck and looks like the pic below, It is called the wheel cylinder and it is part of the brake system.

Replaced brake lines and master cylinder after bleeding lines I still have no brakes what do i need to do to get brakes back?


a key might be the brake pedal.
if it goes to the floor easily it is not connected to MC or MC isn't functioning or there is a massive leak.
If it goes to the floor with resistance than there is still air in the lines.
If it drops 1-2 inches and stops hard than look at the brakes to see if they r moving. could be an obstruction in the line.

How easy is it to replace a leaking driver's brake line on a 1995 cutlass ciera?


In most cases on these older GM vehicles it is much easier to replace the lines from the master cylinder all the way to the rear wheels. You should be able to find brake lines that are preferred and have the correct fitting for what you need to do. Compression fittings are a definite No No

Some things to check ahead of time
1. Do all the bleeder screws open? If not you may be replacing wheel cylinders and calipers.
2. Are the brake hoses cracked? If they are might as well replace them at the same time.
3. Are the pads and shoes in good shape. If they are getting thin might as week replace them as well.
4. Do all the brake lines you need to replace come loose from the hoses, cylinders, master cylinder, proportioning valve, etc.

Just about every GM that I get in the shop with rusted brake lines to the rear end up with a $800 +/- bill. 3 hours labor, 20+ feet of line, proportioning valves (later models), fittings, wheel cylinders. And a bleed and flush.

The lines don't have to look pretty they just have to work!

good luck and let us know how it goes.

Hi oakleafwoodw, sounds as if the brake master cylinder has busted a seal allowing the brake fluid to leak by cylinder when you push the brake pedal giving you no or very little pedal pressure....it is located under the hood on the drivers side firewall, you will see all the brake lines attached to it , remove those and the two bolts holding it on,take it with you to auto parts store for a rebuilt one , they will keep your core for rebuilding, other wise you pay a core charge., verify that they have the one you need before hand, get a quart of dot 4 brake fluid, hook it up, and bleed air from the brake lines starting with wheel cylinders in this order Right rear......left rear.....right front.....left front...making sure to keep fluid level topped off in the master cylinder during the whole bleeding process or you will pump air into lines....OK!! caution: you should not drive it until you have good brakes!! you said they still work but if you had to stop suddenly ,it won't do it.

Check the fluid level in the brake resivior. It sounds like you have a leak. Check all the brakes and look for ruptured lines or a leaking caliper. If no leaks at the wheels and along the brake lines the issue would be the master cylinder or hydo boost unit.

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.

Leaking brake fluid from rear driver side wheel area. Whats the problem and fix? Thanks.


The wheel cylinder has a defective seal, and is leaking. A common problem due to age. Inspect the brake lines also and replace if needed. When you replace one wheel cylinder, replace the brakes and do the other side at the same time.

Brakes went out - Brake light on


check the fluid level in the master cylinder, drivers side firewall, the warning light indicates either low fluid level or handbrake application, in your case with low brake pedal i would say you have a line or component (i.e. wheel cylinder, caliper, line, flex line, etc) leaking. hope this will help you. good luck

I would Look For A Vacuum Leak, Given the Fact that ALL that Work was Done in a SHORT Amount of Time, And The Brakes ARE VACUUM ASSISTED, that when Brakes are applied the ENG. Light Comes on, Seems to Me It all May be related. It does not take Much to Pop A Vacuum line OFF Accidentally
