I am almost positive now its your MC... all it is to do that is two bolts 2 lines and a plug to disconnect . Even you should have it done in less then an hour. Just make sure you bench bleed the MC before poping it on the car.

A fitting or a line? If it'* a line, replace it. And any others that look similar.

depends if you want a quick fix or a forever thing... the quick fix is to cut the brake line with a line cutter slide some rubber brake line over the infected area then use some clamps to seal it... thats just temporary of course until you can bend the piece of line and pop it in. Keeps ya from dieing anyways.

Don't repair with rubber. Replace that brake line completely. And any other line that looks nearly as bad or worse.

NEVER trust your brakes to rubber brake line and hose clamps.

Yeah if you dont know how to do this dont attempt it let the professionals handle it... the parts shouldnt be that expensive but the labor might be.

I poped the hood and checked the master cyclinder and it was DRY. ohh and btw i had the brake light flashing on my dash i guess because the computer saw the MC was empty. so now i am stuck out by my school i called a friend and and the only thing he had was dot 3 ford brake fluid so i say the H*** with it its going in so i put it in pump the brake and they are KINDA back not fully tho. I looked for leaks under the car did not see any puddles or fluid sparying out as i hit the brakes so i dont know whats going on and the fulid in the MC is still in there has not leaked out so what the H*** happend and how can i track down the prob thanks!
If it'* a line, wouldn't the other half of the master cylinder and the two wheels still have had brakes? The leaking line wouldn't let all the fluid drain out of the master cylinder.
