My 94 Accord needs the brake line replaced. I believe the leak is over the gas tank. Car is still sitting at home as it needs a tow to the mechanic. Any ideas on cost of replacing before I take it in? Are brake lines replaced in "pieces" or are all lines replaced. I spoke to mechanic over the phone and he advised $300-$700 depending on tank being dropped etc.
Check the flexable fitting. I have seen these pushed up over the top lip of the tank and when they start leaking, its hard to see exactly where the leak is coming from as you can't get up far enough to see anything.
Replacing the flexable fitting should take just a few minutes. Try pulling on it to see it will move, if it does move it away from the tank. Then see if the leak is still coming from the top of the tank. If indead it has been moved that much, one of the hard lines probably got kinked. I have seen this happen with an Accord that was being used as a dune buggy and a piece of wood shoved it up, pulled the anchor bolt out and it and the kinked line were replaced for about a $100.00, which included lowering the tank.
hey im having the same issue now with my accord. the line that goes next to the tank shown as #4 in the diagram where i marked in red there is a tiny hole.i was wondering does the subframe or tank have to come off to get to the line?
went for an inspection today and you guess it, leaking brake line from the same location . I would tackle this job BUT it's too cold outside, I was quotes about a 100 bucks for everything, we will see how this turns out.
