I assume you're talking about the return? Its just a piece of fuel injection hose. Any good parts house will have that in bulk.

so it was fixed and over a year it started to leak again?

if its just a fuel line with no special connectors on either end, auto stores sells hoses, but make sure you get the ones for fuel only

F that. Go back and demand they fix that ish. Since it wasn't properly repaired to begin with they should cover it.
If not, post the name of the shop so I never go there.

Yeah, well he already paid once. It's worth it to make them guarantee their work. If not, then lesson learned.

It's a year later on a rubber line. u just have to be realistic. i could have failed for any reason. just my two cents.

lets try this again. thats the best i can do with paintshop but it does have one pressure fitting on it..the connection that goes to the fuel pump has a L shape lollipop fitting and the connection that goes to the fuel rail just has a little clamp on it

LOL...That's ironic.
I know Brian...for about 13 yrs. He'll fix that sh?t for you if you ask.
He was probably just tryin to save you cash...get ya back on the road.

Let's roll when you get that squared away by him or DIY.

The fuel line have banjo on both end.
Don't think you can buy it from anywhere.

I wanna see a picture of the fuel line setup,
I wanna know how they connected the line with the the banjo end.

Its the return fuel line. The supply has the banjo fittings, the return is just a piece of hose.
