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.

How to repair leaking fuel lines under the tank

Okay, prepare to get some gas on you. You need to drain the gas
You'll need:

1 pair hemostats or hose pincher
1 pair of wire cutters
1 screwdriver phillips or flat head
1 nut driver 1/4 inch or 5/16 inch
New fuel line. (cut 1 two inch piece and put the bolt in one end making a plug) = 2 inch plug
Hose clamps.
1 Bolt that will fit inside fuel line.(make line plug)

Pinch either side of the fuel line with hemostats. Cut the factory clamp off and pull the hose off. Put the 2 inch plug on the tank,and that will stop the gas from coming out. put a hose clamp on it if you want so it don't leak.
Now put a gas can under the pinched line and unpinch it and let the gas drain out of that tank.
When done draining , cut that hose off the tank and put it on the other side where that plug is. Remove the plug and put that line on and let that tank drain.
Once the tanks are drained., Just cut the hose to length and replace, using new hose clamps and new fuel line.
If your quick enough you can swap the hoses out without draining the tank.
You will get gas on you no matter what.

Fuel line from the fuel tank leaks-- how do I repair or replace the line

The quick fix is getting a piece of ubber hose and two clamps and repair the line. You will have to cut the line and put the rubber hose on both ends and tighten the clamps. The permanent solution is to replace the fuel line from one end connection to the other end connection.

Changinge fuel flitter and broke the plastic contector peice what do i do now and does that go to the fuel pump

Are you talking about the hose clamp? It would be the piece that clamps down on the fuel line. If so, you can get new ones at any auto parts store. Or, if you broke the actual filter itself, you could probably cut the hose a little short and get a new filter.

Hole in the smog line that leads across the gas tank.

You should be able to put a piece of rubber fuel line over the section with a hole, clamp both ends. If it's hard to get to, run a long piece of rubber fuel line (inside diameter big enough to fit over smog line), cut the original smog line, attach new rubber fuel line over cut section, wiggle it over the tank to other side where you can cut original line again, and attach both ends with hose clamps. Let me know how it goes, it should work, you can even go around the tank front or back, just make sure you use zip ties or something to keep the hose from hanging down.

Can't figure how the union part is suppose to go

You might be talking about a fuel line, quick disconnect connection. If so the tool looks like a mushroom with one side cut out. There are a few different styles out there and you can pick it up any part store. Just ask for a fuel line quick disconnect tool. When you insert the tool it will spread the three metal tabs so the lines can be seperated.

Repair pin hole in metal fuel line for Pontiac Gram Am Car.

I would suggest cutting the line in two and bridging the two pieces with a piece of rubber fuel line hose. Use a hose with an inside diameter within which the metal line will fit snuggly. Use a clamp on either end of the hose.

99 Chevy Z71 heater core inlet hose male fitting broke

This is an easy $7.00 fix. Go to your local auto parts store and get a GM Heater Hose Fitting. I went to NAPA, part #730-5631. Cut of the old fiting with a hack saw blade, being careful not to damage the pipe from the heater core, put the new one on. Total time takes less than 10 minutes, make sure you fill your coolant resevoir.

Fuel filter to tank quick disconnect broken

Here is a quick solution. Go to Napa Auto Parts with your line size. Take the piece you broke off so they can match the line size. They sell pieces that are about 18 inches long so you can splice it in. These pieces range in price from about 16 to 22 dollars. Other parts stores don't carry this fuel line. They will want to sell you the whole line at a cost of hundreds of dollars. Napa will be able to accomodate your request as I know because I get these pieces from them often.
Good luck. Let me know how it goes. Just read the directions on the package. You need to heat the line up to in stall.
