Customer Question
Ernie I broke a...

Ernie I broke a fuel line nipple on top of round assembly on top of fuel tank where all the lines & electrical for fuel pump connect. Nobody seems to know what i'm talking about. 1990 dodge dakota,automatic,3.9 engine.

Mechanic's Assistant: Thanks. Can you give me any more details about your issue?

I was changing out the old fuel lines & the plastic nipple snapped off.Too small to epoxy back together. Can't reattach one of the fuel lines because of this issue.

Can't locate module.Haven't tried dealer or napa. Any ideas where i might find part?
Dodge Mechanic: moparfl, ASE Certified Technician replied 2 years ago

You can buy it from the dealer or napa

Just tell them you need the fuel pump module and not just the pump

Did you find a pump module to repair your problem?

Customer reply replied 2 years ago
napa or dealer don't have & can't get it.
Customer reply replied 2 years ago
I haven't looked on ebay lately.The module according to information i have received,says that 90 & earlier are the same & 91& about three years later are different. There was a suggestion to swap entire fuel tank with the 91 or later module? I would like to find proper module or replace the broken nipple,which is doubtful to find.

The ones i saw on ebay don't show enough detail on the top, where the lines connect to know whether or not it will fit. Also all i see listed are for 91 & later.When i check the fitment, it shows that it won't work on the 1990.Thanks:EMC
Customer reply replied 2 years ago
I had no reply from my last message.I'm exactly where i was before we started chatting.The ones on ebay show no fitment for 91 & newer for my 90 truck.I'm sure someone sells 90 & earlier,but who? It seems i am dead in the water right now.Any other advise,other than get rid of it fast? Thanks:EMC
