So I need to replace the fuel line in my truck that starts under the cab, and goes into the throttle body ***'y. I'm sure there's a technical name for that part, but I haven't figured that out so far. That's probably my main problem.
Anyway, here's a picture of the part that let me down. It sprung a leak about 2 weeks ago, and with help, I was able to patch in a piece of rubber hose so that I could get home from work without the truck exploding. Since then, the truck has sat in the parking lot, waiting for the new part to arrive.
For reference, the part I ordered, and need to replace, is reference number 16440N in the diagram below.
I have the service manual for the truck, and was hoping this would be a quick and easy fix, once I had the part. Remove broken line, install new line, enjoy running vehicle. However when I unwrapped the part, I quickly realized that I wouldn't be able to replace just the problem section, but the entire length of hose from the fuel line underneath the truck, to the TB ***'y.
Looks like I'm going to need some time to do it, and a few tools. Both of which I have. However, I'd like to find the section in the service manual where it describes what all I need to do in removing the line. The end with the quick-connector I get, but the other end by the TB I don't. Not sure how that works, and I need to know before I start working.
I tried looking up every part of the fuel system in the service manual, but the only thing it tells me is how to remove the fuel pump. I don't care about the fuel pump. Or the fuel tank. Or even that section of line. I want to know about the section up by the engine, but can't seem to find any info on it.
Anyone know where I need to look?
