What are brake lines?

Brake lines, also called brake hoses, are reinforced rubber tubes made to withstand extreme hydraulic pressure and heat. They link the brake caliper to the rigid metal brake lines from the master cylinder, and must be flexible to allow the front wheels to turn.

What are the symptoms related to a bad brake line?

When a brake line fails, you may notice a sharp loss in braking power, the vehicle pulling to one side while braking, the brake pedal feeling soft, or a complete loss in braking power. In the event of a brake line bursting, the brakes will not "pump up" if you repeatedly press the brake pedal. Instead, the pedal will feel lighter with every push.

Can I drive with a brake line problem?

It is not safe to operate a vehicle with a braking problem. If your car is having problems stopping, it puts your life and the lives of others at risk.

If there's any sign that the brakes are not performing like they should, have it towed to a repair shop as soon as possible.

How often do brake lines need to be replaced?

Brake lines fail due to age more than mileage, and typically a vehicle needing new brake lines have passed the 100,000-mile mark.
