Question about 1998 Pontiac Sunfire
Measure the outside dimension of the line and head down to the auto parts store. If it is rusty where it broke you need to get a piece of fuel line with enough length to bypass the weak spot, usually 2 or 3 feet. Make sure they give you fuel line and not brake line. There is a difference in thickness. Also get 2 compression fittings the same size as the line and some emery cloth and a small tubing cutter.
Cut out the bad piece of line, on a straight section, and clean up the good ends with the emery cloth so the ferrules will slide on easily. Put the nut on first, then the ferrule and the the union. Withthe line butted snug in the union slide the ferrule in snug and tighten the nut. Don't overtighten, it's easy to wreck your joint. Do the same with the new piece of line. Start the car and check for leaks. Tighten nuts that need to be tightened if it's leaking, and you are done.
You shoul be able to do this for about $20-$30. Hope this helps.
