They probably just expanded the hose with something. If nothing else hit the junkyard and steal (not literally) one off another jeep.
Yep realized that once i looked through the haynes. Correct name is what you said fuel Filler hose part number is 5201 8801
Napa seems to have fuel hose but there is no application for them just universal hose....If you want a correct fit go to the dealer...

More than I wanted to pay but at least Ill get the gas take back together and can continue trouble shooting my fuel issue.
The hose should have a connector at the other end (Lower down the firewall) if I remember correctly. Also this is the regular cherokee section where no one has a v8. Youll get better answers in the GRAND cherokee section. httpwww.jeepforum.comforumf13
fuel injection hose. Not fuel line. Also the fuel is probably at around 3-4 bar it can probably still leak with a hose wrapped over it. Autozone should have fuel injection hose.
Okay just did a test with jury-rig option Wrrap rubber round it. No dice. Things Ive learned 1) Its a rigid hose which is why patch and cover options seem to be off the table. Unlike a more malleable hose the rubber on this wont shift and bend to help self-heal the breach. 2) The length of hose Im dealing with look like about 6 or 7 inches. I can see where it attaches to the next segment of hose so

Can you take a picture of where the leak is Dont have my jeep in front of me so I dont know if this is a formed piece or just hose. The fuel injection hose that AZ sells will hold up to 100psi. The option of the metal hose spliced in is also a great recommendation. I would use a flare tool to flare the ends so that the rubber has something to grip this will also make a very good seal. I used this technique on a VW to attach the hard lines at the fire wall to the fuel rail. Worked just fine.
When I redid my fuel line on my jeep I used Gates Barricade fuel injection hose and used hose clamps to attach the hose to the quick connect nipple. Very great hose and not a single leak. Nylon fuel line is very difficult to splice onto the jeep without leaks. Speaking from experience.
X2 on the hose clamps man I have been through so many fuel problems I will tell you forget tryna get direct replacements for lines like that... as long as its not the long metal fuel lines.. I would replace your problem with some fuel hoses of the right size and 2 clamps on each end of the right size and by right size i mean it should not slide on easy you want to have to work the hose on Not to small
Thanks for the pic and it helps. It would be easy enough to do away wthe quick disconnect and just use fuel injector hose winjector-type hose clamps on the line in frontbehind the t-case. But unsure about where the plastic hose looks like its crimped on the metal one at the top of that pic Is that line bigger than the 38 metal behind the T-case or is it just because its closer in the pic If its also
I crawled under the jeep and I used 38 gates barricade fuel injection hose. Perfect size for the barbs on the quick connects. Make it a simple job and keep the quick connects. Use a box cutter to cut the nylon line off the quick connect. Slide new hose over quick connects and use a hose clamp to secure it on each connection. Dont under tighten or over tighten the hose clamp. Thats the way I did it and there arent any problems.
They get a little sticky if they havent been off in a while. Usually a twisting motion will help get them off. You may want to replace the hoses while youre under there. If you do youll need a couple feet of 38 fuel injection hose. Make sure you specify fuel injection hose regular fuel hose wont stand up to the pressure for long.
Cut them and replace them with NEW hoses and hoseclamps. That old hose is old enough to drink. Spend the 5 bux and get some new fuel line.

What counts as clamps and hose suitable for fuel injection I realize thats probably a dumb question but what qualifies as suitable
fuel injection hose must withstand much higher pressures... you want hose rated SAE J30R9...it will be stamped on the hose along with the words fuel injection...the fuel injection clamps have a rolled shoulder. Any decent auto parts counter guy can help you out. Be aware that the hose from the tank to the filter is 38 and the short piece at the outlet of the filter is 516.
Unless Ive misunderstood that looks like a standard quick-disconnect tool for releasing spring-lock connections. That isnt what Im talking about here. As you can see in the photo the lines are already disconnected from the fuel rail (and they dont use spring-lock connections anyway). What I want is to take the connectors (outlined in red) off the end of the flexible nylon hoses so I can push new connectors
I have to work in a parking lot so I have no sources of power to boil water or use a heat gun. An alternative would be to buy the connectors already crimped onto new nylon hoses (Dorman sells these) that just need to be cut to length and connected to the metal fuel lines. Or is that more of a hassle How do the nylon hoses connect to the metal lines down at the bottom of the engine bay
Sorry you need to explain more. You need a blowtorch to removereplace the nylon fuel hose from the metal fuel line

I mean my hose is 27 years old and it just needs to be replaced anyway because how long will gorilla glue
[IMG] [IMG] So that white crap is when fuel mixes with gorilla glue. Its holding but not sure for how long and just wanna replace the hose. I replaced the seals a while ago thinking they were busted which they were and causing the problem but nope. Not them. So the seals arent the issue its the actual hose. (I used gorilla glue because its the only glue I know that works on metal and didnt have JB weld)
The cooler lines are not under much pressure at all. The pressure is all inside the tranny. I have run fuel hose for 3 years now without issue.

This is good to hear. The hose that was on it from the factory was garbage and was still holding fine. The leak was from the press fitting to the hard line. I guess we will see what happens but like I said... it seems fine for now.
im running fuel hose and it works just fine.
