Acura 3.2 TL 1999 - Leaky fuel line repair

The main fuel line that runs from the fuel pump located at rear of the vehicle to the front of the car is rusted. I was thinking of cutting a section out and replacing with flexible tubing (using clamps at either end of the tube). Has anyone attempted this and is it a viable fix? Does anyone know the diameter of the fuel line that runs underneath the car chasis?

It can be a viable fix. but the two ends of the fuel have to be flaired useing a flairing tool and hve strong flex tubing with good claps due to the pressure. i can work, ive done it before on a ford escort, but if you can afford it i would reccomend replacing the whole line

Where is the fuel pump locted on a 99 acura tl

HI. First, you will need to remove the filler cap. This will release the pressure in the tank. Once this is done, simply, remove the rear seat. This will expose the fuel pump access panel.The access panel will be secured by three screws. Remove the screws to lift the access panel. Once the panel is lifted, the pump will be accessible.

Car starts and stalls immediatly where is the fuel pump how do you access it also where is the fuel pump solinoid. 1999 acura tl. thanks bob

Hi Bob,
I think the fuel pump on your Acura is located on top of the gas tank just like Honda's are and it is an electric fuel pump. You should be able to hear it running when you first switch the ignition on. have someone switch the ignition on while you sit in the back seat and see if you can hear it, if not the fuel pump fuse may be open. If all this checks out and you can hear it running check for a clogged inline fuel filter.
