SOURCE: Rear fuel line at the tank is leaking

The connection is a quick dissconnect, I unpluged the line by pushing up on the bottom of the fitting and pulling down on the retainer . This allowed me to unplug the line. I then removed the fitting that was threaded into the tank and found the rubber "O" ring was bad, I replaced the "O" ring and put the parts back together. ( i sprayed a little WD 40 on the Quick dissconnect and applied a small amount of "O" ring lube to the ring prior to putting everything back together )

SOURCE: how do i remove the fuel supply lines coming off

You may find these are factory hose fittings, they are put on with a special tool, and usualy can only be used once. Im not to sure how they come apart, but will have to be cut off somehow, and then replaced with standard hose clamps of the worm drive type.

SOURCE: gas leak from quick connect on gas line under tank

Hi, there is an o-ring (or possibly 2 o-rings) inside the female QD fitting. Replace the o-ring and make sure the return spring is pulling the fitting closed. If not, replace the line/fitting.
Thanks for using FixYa.

REPLACEMENT of a fuel filter on a 1997


cd7cd12.gif
The fuel filter (1) is mounted next to the fuel pump module (2), on top of the fuel tank (3)


The fuel delivery system uses quick-connect fittings. The fuel filter mounts to the top of the fuel tank.
  1. Properly relieve the fuel system pressure.
  2. Disconnect the negative battery cable.
  3. Raise and safely support the vehicle.
  4. Place a drain pan underneath the fuel filter to catch any spilling fuel that will result from disconnecting the fuel lines.
It may be necessary to support the weight of the fuel tank with a block of wood and a floor jack. Once this is accomplished, loosen, but do not remove, the fuel tank strap bolts. Allow the fuel tank to lower just enough to access the fuel line fittings at the fuel pump module.

Disengage the fuel line quick-connect fittings from the fuel pump module

Be sure to place a drain pan underneath the filter line fittings to catch all fuel spillage

Locate the fuel filter in its mounting on top of the fuel tank. Detach the quick-connect fittings from the chassis fuel supply tube and fuel pump module by squeezing the quick-connect fitting retainer tabs together and pulling the fitting assembly away from the fuel line nipple. The retainer will remain on the fuel tube.

To install:
  1. Install the fuel filter on the top of the fuel tank and tighten the mounting bolt.
  2. The fuel supply tube (to chassis fuel line), return tube (to pump module) and fuel supply (to fuel filter) tube are permanently attached to the fuel filter. The quick-connect fitting ends of the fuel supply and return tubes are of different sizes.
  3. Apply a light coating of 30W engine oil to the nipples of the fuel filter.
  4. Push the quick-connect fitting over the fuel line until the retainer seats and clicks into place. Be sure the retainer tabs have locked into the case of the fitting.
  5. If necessary, raise the fuel tank and tighten the fuel tank strap bolts.

How to replace fuel pump on chevy malibu 2000


First you should check your trunk. some newer chevy's have an access pannel uner the trunk liner inside the trunk. you remove the liner, remove the bolts and panel, and the pump is right there. it may take some effort to get it wiggled through, but trust me, it will fit. you must remove the fuel lines and wire harness first, then remove the lock ring completely before attempting to pull the pump through the access hole. if that fails then you need to drop you fuel tank to access the pump. there are instructions for removal and installation of the tank below.

REMOVAL & INSTALLATION
  1. Disconnect the negative battery cable.
  2. Drain the fuel tank, using a hand-operated pump device to drain as much fuel through the filler tube as possible.

  1. Raise and safely support the vehicle.
  2. Unfasten the muffler hanger bolts.
  3. Remove the rubber exhaust hangers, then allow the exhaust system to rest on the rear axle.
  4. Disconnect the hoses from the fuel tank sender. Grasp the filter and one nylon fuel connection line fitting. Twist the quick-connect fitting 1 / 4 turn in each direction to loosen any dirt within the fitting. Repeat for the other fitting. Using compressed air, blow out the dirt from the quick-connect fittings at the end of the fuel filter.
  5. Detach the quick-connect fittings by pulling the release tabs back on the fuel line quick connector and pulling apart.
  6. Disconnect the hoses at the tank from the filler, vent and vapor pipes.
  7. With the help of an assistant, support the fuel tank, then disconnect the two tank retaining straps and carefully lower the tank.
  8. Detach the fuel sender electrical connector.
  9. Unplug the fuel pressure sensor connector.
  10. Remove the fuel tank from the vehicle.

To install:
  1. If the tank is being replaced, perform the following:
    1. Remove the sound insulators.
    2. Remove the modular fuel pump/sender assembly, as outlined earlier in this section.
    3. Inspect all connectors for dirt and burrs. Clean or replace, as required. Inspect the fuel line O-rings for cuts, nicks, swelling and/or distortion and replace as necessary.
    4. Install the fuel sender assembly to the new tank, as outlined earlier in this section.
    5. Install the sound insulators.

  2. With the help of an assistant, raise the fuel tank to the vehicle and attach the fuel sender connector and, if equipped, the fuel pressure sensor connector.
  3. Raise the fuel tank into position then fasten the retaining straps. Tighten the retaining bolts to 26 ft. lbs. (35 Nm).
  4. Connect the hoses to the filler, vent and vapor pipes.
  5. Attach the nylon fuel feed and return connecting line quick-connect fittings to the fuel sender, as follows:
    1. Apply a few drops of clean engine oil to the male connector tube ends.
    2. Push the connectors together to cause the retaining tabs/fingers to snap into place.
    3. Once installed, pull on both ends of each connection to be sure they are secure.

  6. Install the rubber exhaust hangers.
  7. Install the muffler hanger bolts, then tighten to 11 ft. lbs. (15 Nm).
  8. Attach the fuel tank sender electrical connector.
  9. Carefully lower the vehicle.
  10. Refill the fuel tank, then connect the negative battery cable.
  11. Turn the ignition to the ON position for two seconds, then turn it to the OFF position for ten seconds. Turn again to the ON position and check for fuel leaks.

Fuel filter replacement removing old filter


An inline filter can be found in the fuel feed line attached to the rear crossmember of the vehicle.

  1. Properly relieve the fuel system pressure.
  2. Raise and safely support the vehicle with jackstands.
  3. Grasp the filter and nylon fuel line fitting on the tank-to-filter line. Twist the "quick-connect'' fitting 1⁄4 or a turn in each direction to loosen any dirt within the fitting. Use compressed air to blow out the dirt from the fittings at the end of the fuel filter.
  4. Detach the quick-connect fitting by pushing inward toward the filter and grasping the plastic tab around the connector and pull apart. If additional assistance is required to disconnect the fitting, tool J 38778 or equivalent can be placed between the filter and the fitting release mechanism to carefully force the two apart. Be careful not to bend the special tool. NOTE: Always use a back-up wrench anytime the fuel filter is removed or installed.
  5. Using a backup wrench (where possible) to prevent overtorquing the lines or fittings, loosen and disconnect the feed line from the filter. Be sure to position a rag in order to catch any remaining fuel which may escape when the fittings are loosened.
  6. Remove the fuel filter from the retaining bracket. To install:
  7. Before installing a new filter, apply a few drops of clean engine oil to the male tube end of the filter. This will ensure proper attachment and prevent a fuel leak.
  8. Position the filter into the retaining bracket with the directional arrow facing away from the fuel tank, towards the throttle body. NOTE: The filter has an arrow (fuel flow direction) on the side of the case, be sure to install it correctly in the system, with the arrow facing away from the fuel tank.
  9. Push the connectors on the quick-connect fitting together to cause the retaining tabs/fingers to snap into place. Pull on both ends of the connection to be sure they are secure.
  10. Connect the fuel feed line to the filter, then tighten, using a backup wrench to prevent damage, to 20–22 ft. lbs. (27–30 Nm).
  11. Carefully lower the vehicle.
  12. Connect the negative battery cable and tighten the fuel filler cap, then start the engine and check for leaks.
