1995 Rivi Series 2 N/A

The fuel line in the rear thats got a 90 degree elbow into the fuel rail. Its leaking.

I cant seem to locate a part number on gmpartsdirect.com

Need fixed asap.

Can anyone comment on how hard it is to change such line? Also if anyone has the correct part number for the N/A model?

Yes I did a search. Seems consensus is to replace with OEM.

Im going to try that Dorman part #800-059

Apparently its a new elbow with some length of the plastic line and some sort of union connector to splice it together. Dont have much to loose at this point. Im going to check with dealer on pricing for the fuel line. If its not to costly I will go that route and replace the fuel filter while Im at it.

I am not sure if that line goes to fuel filter there are three lines back there, others go to tank. Maybe it is marked on the lines. Hey Redline is parting out a NA 95 on here look him up and PM him on here he is in Texas though.

Well after some trial and lots of water boiling, Im done (I HOPE!).

I ended up going with the Dorman "fix".

Dorman #800-059



Direct link to Dorman site:

It will look like that have about 16" or so of tubing, a barb and some useless plastic "tool".

Anyhow I cut mine where the straight section was. Heres what I cut off:


I figured the length I needed for the new piece. Cut it with a SHARP utility knife. I soaked about 2" or so in boiling water for 5 minutes while it still boiled. THe union/barb slid in easily.

The part on the car was the real treat! (saracsm here)...

I dipped it in hot water, 4 pans worth to be exact. I got over the first barb and hung up on the second. Just couldnt get it hot enough. So we broke out the heat gun. We did it on LOW and about 6" away from the line, going all over the outside where I will be sliding on. I keep trying while my Uncle heated- as soon as it went on the heat was GONE. YOU MUST BE EXTREMELY CAREFUL OR BOOM!

So far so good, no leaks.

The original was leaking where it was pressed onto the barb of the elbow. Turns out where the elbow ends and its just the tube there is a bunch of small cracks and they were seeping...

Thanks for the details, it looks like the smart way to go. I bet the water wouldn't stay hot because it was 19 deg. Glad your out of it for now Ryan. Don

Thankfully I had the use of a garage and some heat, but not to much... lol
