3rd Gen Fuel Line Raplacement

So as many may know my fuel line had ruptured and so many of you guys were awesome.
So I wanted to post up what I did.

First know what line is out, what i did was turn the motor on and found which line was spouting fuel.

Like this: be sure to protect your eyes







Then take 10mm socket to loosen the bracken on the the block.


Be sure there is no debris around here.


Then take you new line and a line to make the fit correct


Then tighten down


You really should use a line wrench an I believe that it was a 18mm.

After you have tighten then inspect for leaks.


And the your done.:thumbsup:

Well that one had a 104396 miles on it, and from what I gathered was the number four is the one that goes out and after you replace it your in good shape.

Could you tell a difference while you were driving or did you catch it before then. I'm right around 102000 and this is the first I've heard of this happening. Just wondering what symptoms to look out for.
