Default How to replace fuel line.

I need some help, I screwed up while working on my car today and I made a hole in the fuel line. It is in the engine compartment, with the 2 lines going to the engine, and the hole is in the top line. I temporarly wrapped a long piece of electrical tape around the hole to keep the fuel from airing out. First off, what is the part number for the top fuel line, and secondly how hard is it to replace this line and how do I do it? Thanks.

I'm not sure of the part number for the fuel line but I'm certain that it will be the whole line from sender to the engine. What you need is a repair section. Here'* a link to what I think you need but the problem is that this company does not sell parts at a retail level... only repair shops and auto parts stores.



Hopefully this can get you started to find a repair section locally.

I know they make fuel line repair kits for the plastic lines, but all I have been able to find in my quick search is one for a professional shop that costs a couple of hundred dollars. I thought that PepBoys carried pieces that could be spliced in, but I wasn't able to find anything at their site. You may want to stop in to a parts shop like PepBoys, Autozone, Advance Auto, etc. and ask them about it.

I don't have listings for individual fuel lines. Your best bet is to identify the line specifically by where it ends and begins. Then go to the dealer. Or find a way to repair it as mentioned. Be VERY carefull repairing fuel lines in the engine compartment or anywhere else near the exhaust.

Is the Top/Smaller line the feed or return line? Trying to find out what kind of line it is compared to the bottom/bigger one.

Stupid Chilton'* was a big waste of money, it doesnt even mention the basics! Right now its in the waste bin, im better off using the internet.
