Question about 2000 Saturn L-Series

The fuel line is leaking right at the quick connect, the manuel says to replace the o ring if it is damaged but i dont see one. i have the fuel line apart but i dont see a standard type o ring. i see a black piece that lines the female side of the line but it doesnt seem like you can remove it.

    Thats the main issue, i dont even see an o ring. Is it just a standard rubber o ring and if so do you know what size it is?

My sons 1998 GMC Jimmy was leaking gas all over the garage floor. Just had the fuel pump replaced.


Either the fuel tank was punctured or a fuel line is not properly connected. They are quick connect fittings, an O-ring may have been damaged.

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.
