How do you get the new ring in, and what do you mean by rating?

Same way it came out, Kind of put a bend in it and wind it in there.


Some o-rings are fuel rated, some hydraulic rated, There'* all kinds of ratings. You need fuel rated.

Gotcha, I was just verifying there wasnt certain pressure ratings or anything...Maybe after I get this fixed and shoot the paint on this thing that I bought for it months ago I might find someone to buy it!

Honestly Dame..I believe he'* talking about the 2 o rings that are behind a pressed plastic piece so they can't come out. Take a look at both sides of the line and look for any reason for the leak....including pressure on the like from something nearby causing it to be pulled or pushed. Typically..those rings never leak. IIRC you would need a new line or line end to fix it properly.

Its right where the plastic lines come to the plasic clips and make a 90 degree bend and go onto the metal lines... Right here, circled in red (Its actually the other clip leaking, the one lower and to the left, sorry about the bad pics, camera phone)

Its only leaking right at the clip where it goes over the metal line, Its damp and wet there on the line and all below it and down the side of the block and down the back of the motor. So is this ring in the black plastic housing replacable. I am at home, sick today so I would like to get it fixed ASAP

after replacing the fuel pump on my lumina this past weekend, i got everything buttoned up and found i had a fuel leak.. it was from the black plastic fitting that goes over the metal lines coming out of the tank. with a sharp "awl" i was able to pop that black plastic pressed in piece, remove 1 o-ring, then another small white plastic spacer, and then another smaller o-ring.... i replaced them with fuel rated o-rings, since both o-rings were torn... put everything back in the same order, and popped the black piece back in.. works like a charm

A small socket helps for reassembly. (Right now..Haro is probably cursing me)

Well yeah there is a pressed ring holding the 2 orings in and I cannot get it out without destroying everything. I NEED this car for another week for work, so I wrapped the metal line with a thin layer of teflon tape and snapped everything back together, Let it run for 10 mins in the driveway watching carefully not a drip, then took it for a 20 min drive checkin every little bit, No leak, See how it does going to work tomorrow until I can find a way to fix this right

I swear there'* only one o-ring in mine. No spacer or anything, Just one regular everyday o-ring. I just went out to the shop to confirm it even.
