Having problems with your Chevrolet Corsica ?
On a 96 Corsica V6 3.2 Liter. Trouble with a
gasoline leak. The metal gas line where it
meets with a rubber line is leaking. How is
this repaired. The metal line seems to have
a flare on it. Is there a special connector for
this? What is a way to repair this? Could you
please also tell me where I can get a pictorial
of the fuel system. Thank you
This is crimped fitting. You have two options. Replace the whole line or cut the fitting off the steel line. You can remove the crimped fitting by cutting it down both sides. Then pull the hose from the line and remove the rest of the fitting. You can slide the hose, or a new hose back on the steel line and double clamp it with screw clamps. If you replace the hose make sure you use fuel injection hose. It is a little more expensive but you have to use it because the fuel pressure is 40 psi.
That is a high pressure line and you need to go to a good parts store (like NAPA) and get fuel line hose and clamps to replace what is defective. It is +40psi so this needs parts that are appropriate for the repair.
