Fuel Line Replacement


Flying Finn

Recommended Posts

I'd replace them with OEM lines.  Often times fuel lines will begin to deteriorate from the I side out and you'll never know how bad they really are at this point.  You could always remove a line and check, but as a part of a quality, extended maintenance program, it's certainly time for replacement...assuming it's never been done before.

They're only close to 20 years old.  They might go another 20, or not.

Ours is a 2001 as well.  Replaced all coolant lines last year, maybe time for the next project...............

Hmmmm, Tinker Week is coming.........

GET IT DONE!

Saw a Gen 1 ISX with the fuel pump screen all gummed up from bad fuel lines.

Try to flex the lines. Any stiffness is an indication of aging. Ad posted above, the lines age inside, as well as outside. I swapped ours out last summer, when I could pick the time and place. 

I have been wrong before, I'll probably be wrong again.

If you think you need to change them then go ahead and do it. Its not a hard job and fuel line is not that expensive. There are some shops that will make you new fuel lines out of hydraulic hose. Some guys say not to do that. Some say its fine. I prefer to use actual fuel line. Most times the ends are reusable. Saves you a little cash.
