Chevy s-10 repair problems

I have a 1992 chevy s-10 throttle boddy injected pickup. It sat for a while and now fuel is not comming out of the fuel injector. when I was removing the fuel line to check if fuel was getting to the injector, the line crimmped. the part is called the fuel feed line, it connects the carburator to the fuel line. it curves through the engine, out the back and then attatches to the fuel line.
does anyone know how to remove this part, or atleast fix it? can I cut the crimped part off and attach another pipe?
I know their's not a problem with the fuel pump or gass tank, I allready replaced them.
thanks in advance!

You must be careful if you are going to cut and use a union with flaring tool to repair that you make sure the repair when tightened is straight or it will leak and if it leaks well you know the rest, you must aquire a heavy tubing cutter a union after measuring the tube and a flaring tool this may be more expensive than just replacing the kinked hose these systems are under high pressure between 30-40 psi so a simple rubber hose with a hose clamp will not hold the pressure don't waste your time with that. Jack up the vehicle support with jack stands and follow the steel hose to see where it conects to the steel fuel hose that goes along the floor of the vehicle hopefully there is a place to unscrew stock unoin and replace the line or remove to repaire with said flaring tool and coupler.

PS follow the instructions of flaring to the letter or leak may result, as always wear safety glasses gasoline in the eyes really sucks.

Chevy s 10 pickup will not crack , possible

first off - there can be other factors - long before the fuel pump - - how about the filter? if u spray fuel into the intake does it run for a few seconds or at least 'fire off' showing it wants to run but needs fuel? Also check ur spark before u go that far - as to the tank -much easier to remove the tank - EMPTY -- get a friend -as it is gas and once it goes - it will kill u quick - - and put a jack under the tank - remove the bolts - lower it just a little bit - then remove the lines - there are special lines so check with the dealer - free advice they are good for too - - also take down the VIN number and check for a recall - might be a free repair -

My truck is had to start or stalling


I have had to work on those chevy trucks that do this 9 times out of 10 the throttle body needs cleaned. you can trace the throttle boddy by seeing when somebody pushes the gas pedal in the cable opens up the throttle body, the correct way is to take it off completly and get carb cleaner or kerosene and a old tooth brush and scrub it out but if you just want to get quick results leave it on and by carb cleaner or that type of a spray and sparay some in there scrub what you can reach and start the car or spray some while its running just BE CAREFULL !!! Any questions let me know and please rate me if you get a chance..
