Only replace lines as any other repair is strictly illegal and dangerous

the leak can be from rusted steel pipes and fittings or failed /rotten rubber hoses

SOURCE: 1999 Durango brake line leak

I have just done this job with aftermarket brake lines in three pieces, two 40" and one 30" joined by unions. I did not take the tank down, it is possible to reach the clips holding the brake line from the top reaching in with your fingers from the outside reaching over the frame. Make sure to have good light and a flashlight at hand. Above each clip holding the electric cable run you see next to the tank there is also a slot (in the same clip) for holding the brake line. I used the two long pieces in the rear and slid one in place, then joined it with the second one the short piece I used to do the final bend up to the junction block. The uninon for that one to the other two conveniently ended up right behind the front most clip holding the brake line and the fuel line to the chassis. I am not sure if I saved time or effort doing it this way I just shyed away from bringing down the tank as all I jacked up the car with was drive on ramps and there was not much space under it. Also the brake line did not conveniently burst when I had an almost empty tank to handle but the other way around...

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.

91 Buick lesabre fuel leak. What are the 5 metal lines running below the driver door? The larger center one is leaking fuel.


Only two are fuel lines, the main feed to the engine and the return line from the engine to the tank. One other gas tank line will be the EVAP line for sending gas tank fumes from the charcoal canister to the engine's intake manifold.
I think the other lines would be your brake lines to the rear wheels.

YouTube has many videos on repairing rusted fuel lines. Most people use the lines made of plastic in their repairs-takes special fittings though. These plastic lines have become very common now. In fact my '92 LeSabre has mostly plastic lines.

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.

Need to replace right rear brake tube on 1999 Buick century custom


first measure the length of the steel tube to be replaced and diameter of tube cut off each end at the fitting so you can remove that fitting with a 6 sided socket. this will keep the fitting from stripping off the flats on the fitting next spray bleeder with wd40 to help open it so you can bleed the system after you replace that line . take your time with the bleeder as it will twist off if not fully freed up

Where is the EVAP emission control system


The EVAP control system includes the fuel tank, fuel filler neck, gas cap, charcoal cannister, evap diagnostic solenoid, purge solenoid, all of the connnecting hoses/lines, ECM and related wiring. Anything that contains fuel that may evaporate (EVAP).
Does the vehicle have a P code for some EVAP problem, like large or small leak, or vent path blocked? Do you have a problem filling the fuel tank or is the Check Engine/ MIL lamp illuminated? If there is a larg or small leak the best way to identify where the leak is located is to use a smoke machine which creates smoke and introduces it into the system and you look for the leak.You will need to close the evaproative diagnostic solenoid using a scan tool or a jumper harness.

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.
