I own a 2004 chevy astro van. the fuel pump died. I dropped

Customer Question

I own a 2004 chevy astro van.
the fuel pump died. I dropped the gas tank to change it, but in doing that I kinked the nylon fuel lines going from the top of the fuel pump to the steel fuel lines. Chevy told me they don't make those parts any more and to just get a new car. I have been to every pick and pull etc. for 50 miles, no one has a 2004. I have tried other years but they are not the same. the connections aren't right. I tried to order them online no one has them. I hope you have other sources I need creative help on how to deal with this.
Is this possible?

Hello and good morning!

So you can get nylon fuel lines but the fittings are not correct? Is that right? I know a way you can make them work by installing correct fittings.

Customer: replied 4 months ago.
Just where am I supposed to be able to get the correct fittings?
Customer: replied 4 months ago.
I suppose to pay some guy $52 to tell me to go buy the parts!!! WTF!! The problem is, there are no parts that I can find,OK, get it?
Expert:  AMEDEE replied 4 months ago.

Hello and sorry for the delay! You can in fact fix this. I know because I have done it many times and I do this for a living.

THIS IS WHAT YOU NEED.

It is a tool kit that can add, remove and fix connectors on nylon fuel lines.

Expert:  AMEDEE replied 4 months ago.

Better yet, I found one for $80 bucks.
