Brake line is leaking Sign In

I have a 1998 Dodge Durango 4x4 my brake line on the driver rear side now if I disconnect and plug that portion of the line I should still have some brakes to get it to a shop rite

repair the leak, replacing a portion of brake line then bleed brakes.
Lets the bar a little - there are no short cuts on safety.

This is rust - right? Don't screw around and have every inch of lines checked while this one fixed or whole side replaced. Common as all get out and of course a surprise you don't need.

There's no way it would be responsible for us to suggest any fakes to drive it this way. Just know - parts are actually cheap by the roll so common but takes some time to bend them, flare ends just right in the same place old one(s) are,

To answer your direct question, no do not attempt to drive it. Have it towed.

As Tom stated, this will be a project to repair as there is never just one rusty line.
