RE: [DML] Re: Gas Fumes/Smell help!



Scott,
If I may step in for just a moment. There is only one high pressure hose and
that is the one going to the top of the fuel pump. The other one going to
the inside side of the fuel pump boot is the return line with no pressure. 
If we want to call it high pressure, I just call it the pressure line is
normally around 75lb's. Fuel injection is the proper hose to use. It has a
working pressure of 100 lb's and a bursting pressure of 300lb's. I have been
selling it for 5 years with no problems. It also has the inner lining that
is needed in fuel applications so the rubber won't deteriorate.    
Don't try to take the connections loose from the metal hose lines coming
from underneath the car. Just cut off the old hose and put the new hose on
the barb fitting and use fuel hose clamps, not the water hose clamps.
Make sure you put a tight fitting corbin clamps around the protrusion where
the return line goes thru the boot and if the lower clamps around the boot
in the tank is snug, then everything should be ok.

I have "been there and done that" twice so I feel that I have some 
fairly good experience in this arena.  I think that you will find 
that if you remove the spare tire and then the cover below it, 
providing access to the fuel pump area you will find that one of the 
two high pressure fuel hoses is leaking.  

If it is, you have two choices if you want to fix it yourself.  You 
can order the hoses from the vendors (been there and done that) and 
they will provide the correct hoses for a reasonable sum (about $10 
each) or you can buy them from any auto parts store.  You have to buy 
high pressure fuel injector hose and it is also about the same cost.

The difficulty centers on putting the fittings in end of the hoses.  
Consult the search section and you will see various ideas from hair 
dryers to boiling water / oil but it is not an easy job to put the 
fittings in the ends of the hose.  Other than that, it is simple.

This may not be your problem, but in my case two times it was and I 
had the exact same symptoms that you describe.

Good Luck,
