1993 Lincoln Town Car Executive Busted Brake Line Advice.

Asked by Oct 09, 2015 at 10:13 AM about the 1993 Lincoln Town Car

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

So my mom has a 1993 Town Car Executive edition that's she's been
driving forever with bad brakes unbeknownst to anyone.

It has mainly been garaged with about 80k miles.

I turned the air suspension off, jacked up passenger side, after a little
pleading, got the brake caliper bolts offs, replaced the pads + rotors,
lowered it and did the same to drivers side.

Unfortunately when I put drivers side down and tested my handiwork, the
brake pedal stayed on the floor and I heard a whooshing sound.

Put the car in park and looked under, brake fluid pouring out from the
pretty the center of the engine.

Now I'm faced with the dilemma of replacing the brake line.

I'm a novice mechanic, is this something I can do myself or should I involve
a pro? How much I am looking at in cost?

Thanks for any advice!

Most parts stores carry metal brake line and the hardware to hook it all up, the daunting part is getting the bends right without kinking the line and making a proper double flare on the final end when you have everything laid out, so 2 more tools are a must have, a flaring tool and a line bender, this isn't rocket science but it may feel like it, you've already had your experience with the blue lock tight on the caliper bolts, so this is a little more labor intensive but you should be able to do the job.
