Okay Beverly Anderson...

Not terribly SPECIFIC... there is a whole lot of fuel line.. but the global... non-specific answer is...
CAREFULLY...!!

To me "fuel line from the motor" means the RETURN LINE...
Does not matter... the answer remains the same.

On domestic cars (yours: I think... today)...
The fuel line runs from the bottom of your fuel tank (guessing here) all the way thru a filter, pump... and steel lines + neoprene hoses (typically 5/16")... arriving above your engine: 3.8L yes/no Turbo... fuel injected engine... (thru pressure regulator, see below) into your "fuel rail".

Then... through your PULSING INJECTORS ... for combustion

Again... "TYPICALLY" meaning there is usually a return fuel line BACK to your fuel tank... and a third VAPOR LINE is attached "TYPICALLY" high on the filler neck removing the EVER-PRESENT fuel vapors from the fuel tank.

So to your question HOW?

Get the right sized tubing...
get appropriate FACTORY hose clamps
**...

GENTLY CUT AWAY the hardened rubber ...
Fit the new neoprene hose... softly tighten those hose clamps
(snug: sufficient only to stop leakage (overtightening is worse than NOT tightening)).

If you ever plan on putting this car in a concourse... PURCHASE the EXACT same CHEESY clamps that came from the factory...

**CONCOURSE awards no points for being SMART/SAFE...

Only ORIGINALITY counts!!

So THEY say!!

Hope this helps... ELSE comment me back... (I'll be around).

SOURCE: change fuel pump on 1994 buick park avenue

Drain all gas as much as possible for weight reasons, Unhook fuel lines, unhook electrical connections, and ground connections, filler tube, and straps, then tank will drop out. Remove retaining ring on sending unit remove unit from tank taking note how it comes out because its got to go back in the same way it came out, chg. pump on sending unit there is one electrical plug, reinstall unit in tank with retaining ring, assemble in reverse order.

SOURCE: broken fuel line

You need to inspect the conditon of the entire line. If it is extremely rusted, any repair will likely fail and even where you did not make a repair, you can expect to see new leaks shortly.
if line is in reasonably good condition you can cut the line using a mini-pipe cutter, and use brass ferrule type connectors to "splice" in a new section of line, making sure that fittings are located on good clean areas that are free of rust or pitting.
Use of rubber fuel line should only be considered as a temporary repair to get the vehicle to a place where it can be done properly. If you find it necessary to do this, use only high pressure fuel hose and high pressure clamps, placing two clamps with the tightening screws 180 degrees apart at each end. (by temporary, I don't mean temporary for the next two years...only for getting back from where you were stranded)

How to replace the fuel line on a 1996 Buick park avenue


Leaking fuel lines are obviously quite serious and repair attempts can result in dangerous situations, with fuel leaking as connections are disconnected.

Unless this is an obvious, simple fix, it is likely a job for the big kids.

How difficult is it to replace the fuel pump on a 1998 Buick Park Avenue Ultra?


About a 2 hour ordeal. You have to remove the straps holding the gas tank up and lower it. Remove all lines connected to the tank(some prior to lowering. Remove from under the car. Remove the lock ring on the top of the tank with a screw driver (flat head) and hammer and install the new one.

1998 Buick Park Ave fuel supply line to injectors leaking at plastic coupling - Do I need to replace whole line from gas tank to injectors?


Thank goodness you will not have to. Your local parts stores sell a repair line and couplers for the high pressure fuel line. Which is relatively cheap comparing it to replacing the whole fuel line. Repair is straight forward and instructions come with it in case you run into issues.
