EDITED to remove offense.
I have a rather HUGE problem that should be simple.
The delivery line from the fuel tank has sprung a leak at the quick coupler where it connects to the fuel rail. Its either at the 90deg elbow or between the lock-tab insert and elbow or the elbow itself developed a crack...impossible to tell. Had this mess connected to the engine somewhere it could more easily be reached I'd try fuel line that could take the pressure and to ensure it didn't leak I'd put a couple small clamps on either end...BUT its in about the most inaccessible part of the engine compartment behind//below the intake plenum and under the brake master. I can just get one hand back there via the passenger side with the plenum off...SOL getting the other hand around the drivers side maze.
Found replacement line (in sections) whereas the existing is a continuous piece. 80$ plus 50$ S&H since it came all the way from Nova Scotia, Canada...none of the local or chain stores could even give me a part#. It had the Nylon pigtail with a coupler-style quick connect on the end and thought GREAT! Still presents the nightmare of needing to get the car high enough to work under it to get the line off AND drop the tank so I can get to the fuel connection.
But I just realized the extra instruction sheet that came with the 130$ set of lines is for. It wants me to RE-USE the engine side pigtail...the one already on the lines is for the TANK side. I wish it pointed this out in the item info.
I apologize...I had to vent. (I've calmed down so I removed offensive-to-engineers content. I was looking to be one at one point...just couldn't decide on what sort)
I need recommendations on what I can use to replace the quick-connect on the engine side....again its a damned part not carried by stores. The locking blue insert broke when disconnecting the line. My luck I'll have to pay dealership prices.
Oh for the love....will THIS fit? http://www.autozone.com/fuel-systems...or/839146_0_0/
If so they also have the tubing and I might just as soon find a suitable place (OH I wish I could) under the car to cut the line and feed down a section. Would save me the nigthmare of pulling the E N T I R E line just to fix the end. Then i could at least get a partial refund maybe on the fuel line...or not since S&H usually isn't refunded and it cost almost as much as the lines themselves did.
