Leaking Fuel Line 05 Cobalt
Hello all - new here.
We recently got my wife a new car and I've got her old Cobalt as my commuter car - all seemed well until last week when I started to smell fuel. I see a leak in the fuel line at the retainer clip by the rear drivers wheel.
Dropped it off at the local shop just to see what they'd say - I was quoted over 300 bucks to drop the tank and see what they're dealing with... Pass.
I've read a few old threads on patching these lines with rubber fuel injection tubing and I'm hoping to do that myself. I see many people make it seem quite easy to cut the old lines, however the last hour of laying on the garage floor I cannot figure out how to get enough room to cut them. Any tips or tricks to this? I might be able to get enough room in front of the tire but I'm not sure how I'd cut it as it snakes up by the fuel tank without dropping it. Or are guys patching it in on the back side? Though that still looks like a bugger to access.
It's an old car but it gets much better mileage than my Silverado for commuting so I'm hoping to keep it road worthy.
Any help would be great. Thanks!
