1990 4runner fuel line problem

I have an extrememly corroded fuel line. Where can I buy another? is there a flexible fuel line that I can run directly and by pass the old line? Can I use rubber or will it not hold to the test of time?

    Thanks for the help I was able to locate a dealer that had the lines in stock so I will go that route. It was way to far gone to try and save any piece of it.

You do NOT want to use rubber hose. Too much can go wrong with running rubber. Flexible/steel braided hose could work, but the fittings on the filter and at the tank will not mate up. Your best bet is to cut out the bad part, flare and install couplings, and just piece in a new line.

Hope this helps; Thnak you for choosing FixYa For assistance.
A FixYa rating would be greatly appreciated.

    That is actually the best route to go. There is nothing better than factory. Just be real careful when you remove the line from the tank. If the lines are badly rusted, you will expect to find the same rust at the tubes that come oput of the tank. If those lines are rusted badly too, replace the tank tube assembly, also.

    A FixYa rating would be greatly appreciated.

Diesel fuel put into a gas engine how do I fix it

To solve the problem, drain all of the diesel fuel out of the gas tank and refill it with gasoline. (If possible open the fuel line near the injectors, place a flexible tube of some kind over the fuel line and drain enough fuel to allow all of the diesel fuel to be removed. Get as much of the concentrated diesel fuel out of the line as you possibly can before attempting to start the engine.) Then you would have to keep cranking the engine for a while to get the diesel out of the fuel lines and the injectors. Eventually the engine would start and run fine.

Diagnostic trouble code P00087

The following diagnosis might be helpful if the vehicle exhibits the symptom(s) described in this PI.

A dealer may need to perform a repair on the rubber portion of the fuel supply (suction) lines. The rubber section of the line could become kinked or collapse. Fuel lines that kink or collapse may induce a fuel system restriction (high vacuum gauge readings) or DTCs P0087, P0093, and/or P1093 to set.

If a technician was to suspect the rubber portion of the fuel feed line collapsing or kinking, replacement of only the rubber line is acceptable.

Complete the steps below to repair the rubber section of fuel supply line:

•Carefully cut, split, and remove the OEM crimp from both ends of the flexible hose. These crimps can be cut with a small cut-off wheel. Split the crimp into two pieces (use your discretion on first cut location, then cut directly across from, or 180 degrees from first cut). Special care must be taken not to damage the flare on the end of the steel pipe that will be reused.
•Remove the OEM crimps and flexible portion of hose from the existing supply line.
•If replacing the rubber section of the supply line, a 1/2 ID hose meeting SAE specification 100R3 is suggested. Dealers may be able to find a local supplier for this hose, or can contact the manufacturer Parker Hannifin. The replacement hose would be a 1/2" diameter Parker part number 601-8 or H017-8. To find a local distributor the Parker website can be accessed at
•Use worm type hose clamps (use double clamps on each end) to attach the replacement hose to the existing pipe.
The locations of the flexible hoses are pictured below.

Fuel line headed towards motor meeting flexible hose. is the metal fuel line threaded with orings?

All newer GM models use a quick connect fitting for the fuel lines. They are not threaded and do not have a replaceable o-ring. You can buy a cheap set of disconnect tools from any auto parts store or sears. Another option would be to buy them on line. The cheaper tools usually do not work the greatest. One solution I have used is to make a small strip of sheetmetal and wrap it around the metal line. Using a pliers you can press the sheetmetal into the quick connect while pushing the flexible line towards the metal tubing. Once the sheetmetal engages inside the quick connect, pull the hose off. Be careful with the sheetmetal, because it can be sharp. I would recommend buying the more expensive removal tools, especially if this is something you do more than once.

Im leaking transmission fluid from what appears to

Make sure you don not run low on transmission fluid in your transmission. Low transmission fluid will cost you a new transmission. You have the transmission line that connects to the upper passenger side or the radiator and the lower passenger side of the radiator. Determine which line has gone bad and you can buy a rubber transmission line hose at most Auto Parts store like Parts Source. Cut off out the section with a pipe cutter that has corroded through and replace with the transmission hose. Make sure you tell them it's a transmission line hose your looking for and don't use any other hose and double clamp with a compression clamps at ether end. If it's the connection at the radiator that has gone bad, replace that end and do that same as you would to sectioning off the the corroded line and try not to have more then 3 inches of repaired section. What ever you do, do not add any stop leak, this will create problems with the shift solenoids and check valves in your valve body in the transmission causing a transmission replacement soon after adding. Good luck and keep me posted.
