broken brake line, most probably start by checking the brake fluid level

Also when I hit the breaks like for a sudden stop it is fine.

Sounds like the master cylinder is bad, if your not loosing any brake fluid.

How expensive is that

$540 to $800 having it done at a shop. Your best to take it in to be looked at, you really don't want to mess around with the possibility of having faulty brakes.
