Question Help! Fuel filter to fuel tank line...

I am trying to locate a replacement for the plastic fuel line that connects from the fuel filter to the tank, as it is leaking.

Help...

I think you need the female/female hose. Not sure what size it is, but if you disconnect it from your sending unit and take it to Autozone or whevever, they should be able to hook you up.

These fuel lines are common and are not really special order. Unless the place does not have your specific length already in stock, it may be necessary to custom cut and install the connectors at the end. Prior to reinstalling, its best to use some fine grit sandpaper or steal wool to remove any corrosion on the steel lines.

I had a problem with this a while back. I tried several things to get around going to the dealer and buying a factory part. After spending more than an afternoon trying to get it to stop leaking I broke down and got the proper part from the dealer. I paid through the nose for it but it worked right the first time and I have not had any leaks since. Many times you can go to one of the local discuont parts stores and save money but this is a situation when I think it pays to go to the dealer.
