Brake line for a ford taurus gl 3.0 v-6

Can anyone tell me what size brake line to buy for my taurus. I blew the mainline to the rear brakes just under the drivers door and want to replace just that part of the line. I went to the auto parts store and they have a couple different sizes such as 3/8. I am not sure which one, so any help would be appreciated. Thanks. w.

Need to know size & length of brake line from front to rear


Most of the brake line that you get at the local auto parts stores usually sell 3/16 and it comes in 5 or six feet sow you would have to splice them together and come already with the fittings.They also sell them in smaller lengths.

1995 Ford Taurus rear brake line leaking possible break between the rear brakes. What would I need to replace on the brake line or could this just be something to tighten?


Most likely a rusted brake tube (Line)
You have to determine that
Got to buy tubing at auto parts store, and do your own fabricating and flaring.
Repair shops usually don't like that sort of work
Could just be a flex hose,then you buy and replace

Leaking brake fluid from rear driver side brake lines,need a diagram of how to replace the lines. 1994 ford taurus 3.o v6.thanks


They don't make diagrams for brake lines. The lines are sold in bulk. You need to measure and duplicate the bends in the orignal lines and cut/flare the lines yourself. You will need a tubing cutter, flare tool and tubing bender.

Replace rear passenger brake line on 1993 cutlass oldsmobile, line rusted in the middle of the car frame and blew a leak.


If you want to do this yourself, just remove the brakeline. Go to a parts store and buy the length of brake line that you need. Most brake lines are 3/8" or 1/4" so get the right size. Get the brake line fittings. You will need tubing cutter, tubing bender, and flairing tool. Just cut it to the right length, bend it to the right shape, and install it. Presto!!! New brake line! Hope this helps. Good luck.

Brake line burst 1999 ford expedition


Which brake line are you talking about?. The metal steel ones,or the rubber ones. Doesn't matter. If you are buying the rubber ones, then just ask for them by year and model of truck.

If you are working with the steel ones, they are either going to be 5/16 or 1/4 depending which line it is. the 5/16 ones are usually attached to the master cylinder or the ABS unit. The fittings sometimes if you don't find the right one have to be re used, in which case you will need to flare the tubing. (Double Flare) Or you can go to the dealer, pay an arm and a leg, but you don't have to flare the tubing, which takes the fun out of the job.
