    New fuel line?

    Anyone know where I can get one for my 91 voyager?

    There is a leak from the line coming out of the gas tank.
    Its only when the car is on though.

    Yea they dont have anything in stock.

    I just checked pep boys, I wonder if the fuel line repair kit will work?

    There is a cut in the metal line from pulling it off the trailer a few months ago.
    We thought we fixed it, but now its leaking again.

    well if you can take it off and have acess to a tig welder id say drain it, wash it out and le *** air for a bit then hold a lighter next to it i guess to make sure no flamable fumes then weld the crack

    section where the crack is, then replace with some nice rubber fuel lines and hose clamps

    No tig welder.


    Yea I think Ill try that.

    What we did was cut out the bad part, and pull the ends close together and use a hose clamp.

    real nice with a cloth braid outside the line... but really depends on the size of your fuel line

    If i were you i wouldnt be screwing around with the rubber lines. If you are going to take the time to fix it i would do it right. If it is steel brake line i would just go get some of that and go that route. IMHO

    Re: New fuel line?

    Well I just picked up a rubber fuel injection line from autozone.

    Im going to put that on, seal the ends, and clamp it down.

    Re: New fuel line?

    Okay it turns out I was wrong.

    Its not steel braided.


    Its rubber tubing just like what I got.
    The thing is I dont know how to connect the old one to this new one.
    Any ideas?

    Re: New fuel line?

    Got what I needed, installed it, and its leaking even more now.

    How do I make the seal between the connections really tight?
    Im going to go down to 5/16 instead of 3/8 and see if that helps for the tubing size.

    Im using those metal clamps that you screw to tighten down.

    Re: New fuel line?

    get the t-bolt style fuel line clamps.

    and don't decrease the size of your fuel line

    flow is a function of pressure and internal diameter

    Re: New fuel line?

    so is it a rubber line or steel that has the initial problem...?

    and the size of the new hose should be just big enough to fit over the old line, but this wont work if u are workin with rubber lines. My advice came from a leak in a steel line

    Rubber.


    I cut out the damages part, connected the new line via these connectors they have for this problem at autozone.
