Ask for the 2 lines coming off the sending unit. to the main line. That should be enough for ordering them. be sure to change your feul filter while you're there good luck

SOURCE: Fuel Pump, car won't start, has good battery and spark, no fuel.

These are relatively easy to change. Raise the rear of the car and let the suspension hang. (usually with jack stands in front of the rear tires) Unbolt the muffler hangers and let the exhaust rest on the rear suspension. remove the heat shield. Disconnect all the little plastic lines. Pull off the filler and vent tubes. Use a jack to support the tank while you unbolt the straps. As you lower it, you should be able to get to the 2 electrical connectors. The rest is self explanatory.

SOURCE: RUSTED FUEL LINES

Yes!! lots of patience, lines are not that easy especially routing them, check the sending unit for rusty lines and the tank also, nothing worse than reinstalling everything back only to find you have another leak

My 1988 dodge ram custom 50 I think is having fuel pump problems. It chokes going mainly up hills. or could it be the fuel filter?

There are fuel lines inside the gas tank. Over time they can rust causing them to break or leak. You have one of two options, first you can pull the tank and replace the line. The second option is to keep the gas tank fuel level above the leak. And the fact that this happens mainly when going up a hill, suggests the leak is lower in the tank. All the gas shifts to the rear of the tank and exposes the leak. NOTE: The leak is probably just above the level you usually keep the tank filled to. So if you keep it at 1/4 that's where you'll find it etc....

Wrecking 1999 sable. how do i drain the gas tank?

If the car is together enough for the fuelpump to work, try disconnecting the fuel filter and clamping a 3/8 inch or 5/16 inch fueline on it and pump it dry. Since the junkyards do not want a gas tank on the car, you can put a piece of plywood on a jack, cut the straps and slide the tank out the bottom of the car after cutting the hoses.

Then just tilt the tank to drain it.

I have to replace rotted gas lines for a 99 sunfire.There are three lines that look to be two different sizes, Would you know what these are?

The main fuel line that goes to fuel filter is 3/8. The vent line & evap line are 5/16. Some parts of those lines reduce to 1/4 near fittings.

Where is the fuel pump & filter on the 99 sunfire

Buy a Hayne's Repair Manual for your car. It's a life-saver. The fuel pump is probably in the fuel tank (or on top of it). The filter is usually in-line somewhere on the left side frame rail. It's really small and can be hard to find sometimes. Good Luck.

1999 sunfire engine light comes and goes error code 442 is this the evap valve and if so is it a big job

its a small evap leak, could be gas cap, or filler neck, or ring at top of fuel tank to secure the pump. if you are in a rusty area, the necks are bad about a hole rusting in them.
