Q: Need help with brake lines.

asked by on

I'm in serious need of help. I can't figure out what's wrong with the brake lines.

Hi, I wouldn’t drive this car until a certified mechanic has verified the brakes are in a safe operable condition, either have it towed to a mechanic or call a mobile mechanic. The brake lines provide a path for hydraulic fluid to each wheel and must not have any leaks or a total loss of braking ability could happen.
