Question about 1997 Buick Riviera
I recently had bad gas smell in my car. After inspection, I found a pin hole in the plastic part of the dealer manufactured fuel line topside. It was hard to see but, it kept squirting fuel out after the vehicle was shut off. I had the line replaced by the dealer. Upon receiving my car from the dealer I noticed that my gas guage was functioning correctly again. It's been a week and still good. Question; Is the fuel system a vacuum pressurized system and since the line was compromised with a hole would that have kept the fuel guage from reading the fuel level correctly?
Dont believe so as you have been driving it for a year and its only recently leaked so no link there.More likely the mechanic who fixed your car got it going again.Loose terminal, bad earth or some thing small enough to fix as a service/good will without charging you for it.
