You can replace this hose alone but check all rubber fuel lines for cracks.

Can you replace rear metal fuel line with a rubber fuel line on a 1995 buick centry v6


I had a Chev Corsica with V6. The fuel lines that ran straight fore and aft to/from fuel tank were metal. But where comes out of tank it was rubber. I'm assuming you've developed a pinhole leak in one of the metal fuel lines. I would suggest putting a "sleeve" of neoprene fuel line over the leak and clamp in place. This requires cutting the neoprene hose lengthwise so that you can slip it over the bad spot. Jut keep in mind that these fuel lines are under a bit of pressure.

Fuel line problem at fuel filter conector, 1994 Buick Century


I know the feeling well when this happens. I to did the same as you and also did the clamp, but found the best way was to yous a crimp tool for fuel lines and its not come off since its like the tool to put brake lines on to the calipers and then you put the rubber hose onto it and using a fuel line clip to hold the rubber in place. has lasted the last 5 years now with no problems.

Your best bet may be to cut the metal line and replace with rubber hose and use a connector to connect with another hose. This would make it easyer in case you have to replace filter again, Good luck to you.

2003 chevy 1500 has a code that says large evap leak. Where do I find this leak?


"Where" to find the leak is in your evaporative emmissions system. Most of the time, a good visual inspection will turn up the culprit. First, check the fuel cap. Look at the rubber O-Ring that seals it against the fuel fill tube. If it is cracked or looks like it is crushed down, replace your fuel cap. If that all looks OK, then you can check the rest of the system for obvious cracks, or leaks. Start with the Evap Purge line. You can identify this in the engine compartment as a plastic vacuum line about 5/16" in diameter and it has a service port on it with a green cap. Check the plastic line for cracks. Then check the rubber components that connect to this line on both ends. One end will go into the Purge Solenoid and the other will go into a steel line that runs along the frame rail under the vehicle. Follow this steel line to where it goes and inspect all connecting hoses, tanks, etc. there will also be rubber hoses at the fuel tank area and some that connect to the fuel fill tube. Check all of these for any visual signs of damage or leaks. Also check for badly corroded metal parts - especially near the fuel fill tube. Sometimes the metal tubes get rusted through and cause leaks.

If a thorough visual inpection does not lead you to a suspect, then the system will have to be "smoke-tested". This is where the system is filled with smoke under a slight amount of pressure so the leak can be seen where the smoke comes out.

GAS LEAK


There are many areas of concern for a fuel leak. The fuel tank is constructed of a rigid plastic and is fairly unlikely to leak. The fuel pump is housed inside the tank and transfer gasoline through a combination of metal and rubber lines to a filter in the engine compartment. From the filter it enters the fuel rail on the engine. Any unused fuel then navigates through metal and rubber hose back to the tank. There is also an opening in the tank for the fuel filler.

The first thing to do is establish a general area of the leak. Is it at the rear of the car? Front? Middle?

Secondly, does it leak at all times or only when running? A leak that worses when the vehicle is running would indicate the pressure or return lines from the fuel pump are at fault.

Begin by determining the general area and depending on your ambition and tool resources, raise the car and inspect closer. Be sure to be safe and use a jack stand. On older hondas the leak is typically a corroded metal fuel line or brittle rubber line.

Not gitting fuel from the gas tank to the fuel pump on a 1984 s10 blaer 2 door


this is a mechanical fuel pump that works off cam lobe, check fuel line from pump all the way to tank, notice wet or rusted line, split rubber lines that connect metal lines to pump and top of tank. disconnect fuel line at pump (suction) side. put a rubber hose on the suction side and clamp, install other end in a clear container with gasoline in it. attemp to start vehicle if it pumps fuel and starts then your problem is the line from the tank to the pump, if it doesn't pump it is the diaphram in the pump. If you suspect the pump and remove it inspect what drives it as well at this time. I believe it is pump or the supply line

Sounds like you are rusted out. Even the factory parts are not that expensive and they are properly bent. Check the dealer.
If substituting aftermarket piping you want to either replace the bad section with a splice or the whole piece. Notice the end connections and where you will attach the replacements.
Notice the routing of the gas line away from hot exhaust parts and areas a lift jack will crush your line. Notice what moves close to the fuel line to allow for travel.

You may be able to splice a piece of rubber fuel line into a metal line with a few clamps.

I have seen everything you will need at Autozone and Oreillys and similar stores with the exception of Factory parts.

Fuel Line Leak, Need Advice


the metal line is part of the fuel pump. if the line is that fragile it should just be replaced. what if it broke and left you stranded somewhere. the fuel tank might look rusty but it's probably just surface rust.

Gas line is leaking very close to tank. The leak is at the joint where the metal pipe coming from tank meets a rubber hose that runs to filter. It seems to be leaking right at this joint which seems to...


You want to be very careful not to make any sparks while working on this. The obvious is smoking, banging metal tools around, etc. keep cell phones AWAY from the area. Pick up some rubber fuel line from the parts store. Be prepared for some gas leakage, have a plastic pan under the leak. Disconnect the line at the tank, have a piece of new hose ready to push on over the line to as close to the tank as you can, have the end away from the tank plugged up temporarily with a pencil or something that fits snug in it, then remove the rubber hose on the filter, and connect new line from tank to filter, check for leaks, hopefully it is the rubber line you replaced, or the end of the metal line, so the new hose will hopefully cover the corroded leaking area. Clamp and Dry off area and see if you can spot any leaks.
