1992 Ford Tempo Question: break line repair

 

Question

The reason for replacing break fluid is because I believe there is a leak in the break line. When applying the breaks , they go all the way to the floor and does not stop right away. What would the estimate be for that?

    I would check your rear wheel cylinders, your front calipers and your master cylinder first and foremost. As for your brake lines, I would look for any leaks before I started replacing parts.

    check calipers and brake slave cylinders located in rear drums if no evidence of a leak in those areas check lines and if leaking a new line and compression fitting will fix it if no leaks in none of these areas remove master cylinder and if it appears wet behind it rebuild or replace master cylinder and it might be good practice to replace booster too if been leaking for a while good luck finding that leak
