Thumbs up ANybody know?

How much a fuel line for an LHS costs?

I've got a leak, I was feeling around the line today and it feels like something chewed into it. It's not cracked, just really rough.

Anyway, I'm pretty sure it's the feed line for the rail, not the return or evap lines. The car will only start if I give it some pedal, and it drips fuel onto the driveway. (no i'm not an idiot and driving the car around, this car is now my winter beater).

Anyway, anyone know how much one costs? Do i have to replace the whole metal line to the tank (which is fine) or can I just replace the plastic part which is where I believe the leak is coming from. I have the service manual but this is the most useless section in the whole thing, found next to no info. I haven't yet pulled the upper intake to get a good look at it.

Gotta replace the whole line from front to back. Sounds like it might have rusted out. Its actually a pretty easy job, the fuel line comes pre-bent from the dealer and ready to install. About $80 for main feed fuel line.

There are repair kits available to seal the line up at NAPA, but I personally dont trust using them.

nope, I'm all about replacing the whole thing, don't trust patch jobs especially for fuel.

Anway, I need to get the upper intake manifold off to really get a look at it, but it feels like it's broken in the plastic section of the line so I'm not sure whats up yet.

Thanks!
Andy

Just take the wiper cowling and strut brace off and you will be able to get right to it. Alot easier than removing the intake plenum.

Yeah, I also wouldn't trust a patch with anything that's constantly under 45 PSI of pressure with a flammable liquid.

don't know if this is related or not, but they had a fuel rail recall. Ma Mopar replaced my fuel rail for free.

mmm. dunno, haven't seen a notice and frankly after 150k miles I don't really care. I pulled the strut tower bar and associated parts off last night and sure enough there's a nice little crack / hole and fountain of fuel coming out of the main feed line. off to the dealer i go tonight.

Any special tools for undoing those quick disconnects? Haven't checked in the service manual yet.
