Chevrolet Repair Questions? Ask a Mechanic for Answers ASAP
Hello my name is XXXXX XXXXX I can help
Can you see the connector?
Not the ones in the front but I can on the fuel pump its self and cant get those off as well.
is this what you have
It appears to be I have seen many videos on how to remove them and the only difference is that the videos make it look like there is a bigger tab to squeeze than what I have.
I feel like I am doing something wrong because all the videos say 30 seconds to disconnect and I have spent 3 hours. Either I am doing something wrong or they are full of it on the time.
Can you turn the connector on the line or is it seized
They build up with rust in them
I dont thin so, I see alot of rust around the fuel pump lines. Thoses I know I cant move, havent tried turning the front lines.
can you do this
If you can give me 5 min I can go see if I can turn the front ones.
spray some wd40 or some thing to break free
Yes easily to the pump lines. If I get the pump lines off will I then be able to remove the tank to get the pump out.
Or do I need to remove the front lines to get the tank out.
The line may be long enough to drop the tank a little. The last one I had I had to replace the fuel feed line
Thats not good thats about 100 bucks a line correct
Yes or more
But if it don't look good it may not reseal and you will have to drop the tank
what wont reseal
the fuel line it may leak gas
thats not good let me go and try the wd 40 and air and see what happens.
wd 40 and air didnt work so I guess I will have to replace the lines as well. Is it just best to cut the poly lines around the connections in the front.
I would just cut the plastic line 2-3 inches from the connector. You will need some thing to grab when you try taking it apart.
ok thank you for your help.
Thank you for letting me help. Sorry that you will have to replace the line
its ok I guess in the long run its better to be safe than sorry
Don't want to drop the tank again for a leak
Please don't forget to rate me
no not after i have already spent 5 hours trying to get it out already. Thanks again.
