PostSubject: Fuel filler fix   Fri Jul 24, 2009 4:38 pm

Well the last 2 days I spent trying to replace my fuel filler hose that blew out unexpectedly. The hose itself was nice and soft with no visible cracks while it was attatched. When the car was running and the system was pressurized it would start leaking from around the filler neck and leave a small puddle. While it was leaking the cracks became visible so I knew the hose was shot. After trying just about every store in 2 towns i gave up for the night and started looking up numbers online so I could call around this morning. Turned out the NAPA which is a 10 minute walk from my house had some and it was in stock. Guess I should have tried there first Embarassed

Anywho....the hose I got was the wrong size since I measured too close to the bend on the filler neck and I had to go back and spend 95 cents more for the correct hose. My only gripe is that this hose is only sold in 3 foot sections and I only needed 9". So this has turned into a $55 fix with a crap load of extra material left over. See for sale section to save some bucks Wink Once I got the hose off it looked like I could have just trimmed a 1/4" off each end it had perfectly good hose again, but the ends were stretched out a bit and to cut off that would have made the hose too short to fit anymore.

If anyone needs to do this fix then this is the info you need:

The original part number through GM is 10228632 and it runs anywhere from $25 to $40 if you can find it in stock.
I bought the Napa brand which is part number 1035 and is sold in 3 foot lengths.
O'Reilly carries it but you have to buy it online since there are none in the northeast.
Carquest also has a part number listed but it was for corrugated hose which is hard to cut and clamp.

The hose itself is fuel rated hose with 1.75" (1 3/4") inside diameter and you need a 9" section for a sedan. I used 10" just to get more hose onto the filler neck. I also suggest replacing the clamps while your there and possibly the vent hose if your so inclined. I'll have to replace mine later.
