What is the best way to replace a rusty fuel line on a 02 Chevy silverado 1500 5.3 engine block?
My fuel line has a leak in one spot and
needs to be replaced. What is the best
way to take this project without going
to the shop?
You could make up a fuel lines using stainless steel tubing and bend it to fit, or purchase new lines from the dealer and install them yourself. The dealer might be your best bet as the heat shrinking of the fittings will already be done and the lines prebent.
Whats the best way to install pre bent fuel lines
I disconnected fuel lines from the gas tank and front of engine. I also removed evap tank. Rusty lines broke into several pieces when taking loose. I cut the flexible fuel lines under truck that are close to the front of truck with side cutters. There is a fuel line [pita] bracket attached to the upper bolt on the bellhousing. There is a 13 mm nut holding it onto the bolt. I dropped front of 4wd driveshaft. I loosened heat shield. I raised left side of body about 2". I had to loosen the abs to install middle section of 3 piece brake line.
