Q:Is a hose clamp needed to secure the fuel line to the connector?
A:Hi Rangerang, glad to assist you! This Needa Parts Fuel Line Connectors - 3/8" Steel to 3/8" Nylon Tubing (Part No. 800-082) fittings are meant to install onto nylon line. They need to be pressed on with a tool and do not require a clamp.
Q:I have removed old quick connect that attaches to line from tank that goes to fuel filter and reinstalled new one,but now when I went to test for leaks fuel just gushes out of the quick connect.I even switched the line around from the filter end quick connect and still gushes out.I know the clear clip is seated up to where the ears dig in to the top of the lip on the metal line and the quick connect "clicks" in and I double check that the clips are in correctly and that line wont pull off.So I guess my question is what could be going on?It just boggles my brain, why is it doing this? I have been at this for a couple of days researching on the Internet and can't figure out whats going on so any help would be greatly appreciated!!!Thank you.oh fyi the car is a 1997 buick lesabre custom .
A:I'm happy to help, Scotty! It's possible that this Needa Parts Fuel Line Connector - 3/8" Steel to 3/8" Nylon Tubing (Part No. 800-082) is not providing a proper seal with your current quick connect on your 1997 Buick LeSabre Custom 3.8L V6. I have found that Needa Parts Fuel Line Repair Kit - 3/8" Connector, Straight with 3/8"x6" Nylon Tubing and Union (Part No. 800-058) may be a better fit for your vehicle. Needa Parts Steel Fuel Line Repair Kit - 3/8" x 18" with 16mm Clip (Part No. 800-153) and Needa Parts Fuel Line Repair Kit - 3/8" Connector, 90 Degree Bend with 3/8"x6" Nylon Tubing and Union (Part No. 800-059) may also be helpful for your repair.
A:For replacing this Dorman - OE Solutions Fuel Line Quick Connector Adapts 3/8 Inch Steel to 3/8 Inch Nylon Tubing - part# 800-082, you would need to push it in with a small screw driver. Remember there is 2 lock tabs. The pump side of the fuel line should be the same, you may need to lower the tank to get to it. If you look there are 2 shoulders on the quick connector that has to be pushed in to clear the fuel line. When the lines are installed/pushed on they will snap/lock into place. Remove the old quick connector(clear piece)cut it, pull it out, then put a new one in and push the line on. However, if you are a novice I would suggest you to get assistance from a mechanic in order to avoid damage to the fuel lines.
