Thsi morning a mechanic flushed out the brake fluid to replace with a new fluid. When he bleeded to let the air out, there was a leak in one of the 4 brake lines. The brake line is rusted from years of...

Hi, this is a very common failure. I recommend you call a couple brake shops. They will have the parts in stock and better experience to get the job done quickly. The bed or the tank may need to come off, but a quicker way may be to leave the old line in and just cut it, reflare the ends, and reroute a new spliced line. Your Firestone mechanics may not have the experience to know this.

Thanks for using FixYa.

I'm in the process of buying a 1984 Chevy S 10 with the small 6 cylinder. It won't pass smog. It seems to be starving for fuel upon acceleration. It does not seem to be running rich at any time during RPM...

If you add 3oz of acetone per 10gal of fuel if the readings were close to passing it should get you there, BUT you will have to test components to find what is malfunctioning. Could be anything from incorrect timing to (name something).There's no magic fixs.

What does my 77 gmc K20 need to pass CA smog

As far as I know. Anything 1994 and under don't have to go through emissions anymore, just safety. But, like countrysi248 said, it might depend on what state you live in. Best wishes to ya.
