Question about 1994 Nissan Maxima

1 Answer

I am replacing a 1/4 in fuel injection rubber hose to a metal fuel line and am having a heck of a time getting the hose all the way down the metal line. I have used light auto grease and it helped a little.

You should be using 5/16" line, for fuel injection (high pressure)

Fuel line problem at fuel filter conector, 1994 Buick Century

I know the feeling well when this happens. I to did the same as you and also did the clamp, but found the best way was to yous a crimp tool for fuel lines and its not come off since its like the tool to put brake lines on to the calipers and then you put the rubber hose onto it and using a fuel line clip to hold the rubber in place. has lasted the last 5 years now with no problems.

Fiat Pallio does not whant to ref above 2000rpm. Warning light for injection system is lit up. Where do I start? What is a common problem?

flush out the injection system. you may have blocked the line or an injector. rubber pipes some times have a bit of lose rubber in them and it can feed its way into the system. that is why they use plastic pipes. can be lowering the fuel line pressure and as the engine needs the right preusser to run. it will limit if there is a fault. when installing a rubber pipe all ways flush out before fully fitting.

Your best bet may be to cut the metal line and replace with rubber hose and use a connector to connect with another hose. This would make it easyer in case you have to replace filter again, Good luck to you.

Tried to repair a gas leak under car . we tried to repair the hose now it doesnt leak from above the hose only under and used 2 clamps and it is tight as we are able to get it is it the metal piping ?

you don`t say what type of fuel system you have,carburetor or fuel injection,throttle body or port fuel injection system.this determines the type of repair.if it is port fuel injection then you cannot repair with a hose,it must be repaired with a steel line as the fuel pressure is above 30lbs pressure and rubber hose is not strong enough for the can replace the section of line that is bad with a new steel line connected to a good section.if it`s carburetor the pressure is only about 6 to 8lbs pressure,and a hose can make the repair.if it`s throttle body then the pressure can range anywhere from 15 to about 20lbs pressure,this can be repaired with fuel injection gas hose,so you can see it makes a difference what system you have.any rubber hose used must be a fuel line hose not just any rubber hose.

You need to replace the hoses with original Ford parts. Order through your local distributor.

What is a good way to troubleshoot a possible fuel pump failure before going out and just buying the part

The best way would be to use a fuel pressure gauge to read the fuel pressure while the engine was running, but you can also try this, when the engine does not start and you suspect the fuel pump to be the problem, then remove a vacuum line from the intake manifold and spray some carburetor spray (has to say extremely flammable on the spray can to work) into the intake manifold and then see if the engine starts, if the engine does start and run for a few seconds on the carburetor spray then there is a fuel delivery problem.

However, and I have found this to be the case with the majority of the 4-Runners that I have worked on,
there seems to be a defect in the rubber fuel line that is attached between the fuel pump and the the metal fuel line that is located on the fuel pump assembly inside of the fuel tank and they all seem to split wide open on the sides and this seems to be a very common problem for those 4-Runners, and that is even why the fuel pump can show as faulty on a fuel pressure gauge, I would certainly not be surprised one bit to find out that the rubber fuel line between the fuel pump and the metal fuel line has a big split down the side of it and is causing the fuel pump to pump more fuel back into the fuel tank than into the fuel line, and it will not be able to supply enough fuel or fuel pressure to the fuel injectors.

If you do drop the fuel tank down to replace the fuel pump, be sure to inspect the rubber line well between the fuel pump and the metal fuel line before you actually purchase a new fuel pump, and most of the time the problem is just that the small piece of rubber fuel line needs to be replaced. (Use fuel injection fuel line only, and compression type "smooth" hose clamps if you can find them)

How do you remove & replace the rubber hoses that run from the gas tank to the metal fuel lines? The hose goes between the frame and body of the car I can not pull or push them out, so how are you...

Step 1-Determine type of fuel line to be replaced. Rubber hoses will have clamps on both ends that should be loosened with screw driver. Nylon and steel lines will have a ferrule at both ends removed and replaced using proper size line wrench

Step 2-Using proper size line wrench or screwdriver, loosen fittings by turning counter clockwise. Catch fuel remaining in lines in a gasoline safe container.

Step 3-Remove defective fuel line and install the new line or hose opposite of removing. Take care not to strip or cross-thread fittings as this will cause leaks.

Step 4-Dispose of remaining fuel in an OSHA safe container.

hope it helps-

You can replace this hose alone but check all rubber fuel lines for cracks.
