Question about 1992 Chevrolet S-10
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.
