If your engine is fuel injected, I recommend that you cut back the rusted area 'till you reach a relatively clean straight section, then install a new section of steel line using brass compression fittings made for this purpose. If you have a mechanical pump, (non-fi) You can just cut the line and slide a section of rubber hose on there and clamp it at both ends. Make sure either repair is properly supported and clear of any moving parts (don't forget rear end goes up and down) to avoid future failure of the repair. Note: hose can be used to make a temp repair to get it off the road, but higher pressures made by electric pumps can cause hose to work it's way off if left in place.

Cranking but not starting until second try.gas smell.Gas line replaced.Had spark plugs, fuel filter changed.Still having starting issues and today noticed leakage near gas tank.


Gas line was only repaired, not replaced. I don't repair gas lines because of this problem. The entire line is replaced, both of them, supply and return. From the tank to the injector rail. This is the reason for the long start. Loose of fuel pressure.

Check underneath that the fuel line has not been broken from the smash or a rubber hose has not come loose. The fuel lines run under the floor just inside the rocker panel (bit under the door) and any damage to the outside may have ruptured the fuel line.

GAS ODOR IN A 2005 PONTIAC SUNFIRE


could be corroded gas lines or gas tank,the carbon cannister or leaking injectors and or if you have a tendancy to fill your tank more at the gas pump to the rim of the filler cap the filler neck that connects to the gas tank by means of a rubber seal may be ruptured. check for gas leaks under the car and in the engine bay,first with the car running and then with the car,s engine shut down and around the filler neck.it could be as simple as having to replace your gas cap. good luck.

the engine is either not getting fuel, or is not getting spark. with the ignition key in the "run" position, listen under the rear of the car (near the fuel tank) for the sound of the fuel pump. or, after cranking on the starter for a while, remove a spark plug and smell it. smells like gas? if so, the problem lies in the electrical area. if not, fuel is not getting to the engine.
