Default Fuel line leak

Ok looks like a leak where a plastic fuel line attaches to the tank or feul pump (don't know can't see up there, but the line that is leaking is not the line with the fuel filter on it, but one beside it that'* also plastic. Problemn is the line says "NOT REPAIRABLE" all along it. So what needs to be done here now? I can't do it myself, just want to know what I'm going to get into repair and cost wise. 1994 SSEi.

I don't know how we missed this one...

Anyway, it may be (likely even) that the plastic line is not the source of your leak at all. You may have a leak where your fuel pump or sender unit is attached. I could be wrong on this, but I think that your year models had an access plate through the trunk. Someone else will probably pipe up and either back this up or kill it, lol.

Do a search on "fuel leak", "fuel pump", or "gas tank" for recent threads discussing these issues.

The 2000+* have the access panel in the trunk, but I don't believe that this was the case for the '94. Brian, it'* hard to say what you may run into with this, as we don't know where the leak is. Most leaks of this type turns out to be the metal lines where they come out of the fuel pump/sender assembly and requires that to be replaced. My son just had the assembly replaced on his '99 GP for around $550 at a local service center.

Lol! Yes, you are right, of course about only the 2000+ having the access panel. I swear that I didn't see that he wrote "1994 SSEi" at the end and ***-umed that he was talking about the 2000...
