what he said.....the brake system can be a nightmare....especially on older vehicles that haven't had the systems bled too many times, the older the fluid, the more corrosive it is on the brake lines...i spent 2 weeks under my brothers dakota before everything was straightened out....and that thing was only a 99 with 50k miles on it(4 months ago)....he hardly drives it and the lines were rusting out...scary

kik I wouldn't drive it like that unless you don't need to stop properly. Check that rear wheel cylinder. They have a habit of leaking but are easy to replace if that's the problem.

C.L. Driving will be no problem. Stopping may be a challenge...

Brake leak

Hey guys I just recently replaced my back breaks but now I have a leak somewhere on the rear drivers side behind the tire. Either the line or i just didn't put the new break together right behind the drum. However, either way, is it still alright to drive for now until i can get around to look at? let me know thanks
