In tank Fuel hose

I replaced the fuel pump in a 2001 KIA a few weeks ago (I have a ton of other problems with that thing but that's another story) and I had to replace the short section of fuel hose from the the in-tank pump to the fitting on the pump housing, I used a Goodyear fuel injection hose. Today I removed the pump assembly to check another problem and I found this hose swollen to nearly twice it's normal size and leaking at the fittings around the clamps. Obviously the outside of this hose is not gas proof so it will not work if submerged in gas inside the tank. I called around to the parts stores and the only thing any of them have is regular fuel injection hose which is what I already used. What can I replace this with?

I'm with Deuce. The Kia which is Hyundai's econobox, is what I call a "throw away" car. They get to the point where you are with it and off to the recycle yard. Unfortunately they are one of the cars of choice of folks that don't have the best finances and while they are running fine they are fine (not a stutter), they are great.

There has to be a neoprene or other material hose that will work. Brake fluid is probably one of the nastier fluids and those brake hoses hold 'forever'. McMaster Carr list hundreds of different hoses and materials - take a look. http://www.mcmaster.com/ and just use 'hose' for your search term.

I looked at a hose that came with a Ford fuel pump, which is too short for this KIA pump, and it looks just like any other Fuel injection hose but it does not have any name or numbers on it. I would have thought this would be common but I guess maybe not since a new pump comes supplied with the proper hose.

Deuce, burning would be too good for this dang thing besides I probably could not get it to burn anyway, I can't get it to do anything else right.

re: In tank Fuel hose

Oldred, I had the exact same thing happen to me ,i replaced the fuel pump in my Ranger, with in one day it would not start....so i did all the checks......so I check the fuel pressure and it's 18psi should be 38 to 42......so I pulled the pump again and the hose that connects from the pump to the hard line out of the tank was split down both sides and was swollen to twice its size,I went back to where I got it and showed it to the parts "person" and she said " Oh yeah we have had a lot of those hose's go bad ,we just change them out. We must have missed this one." She turned and went to the back and came back and handed me a short piece of neoprene hose and said " That will fix it" to witch i said what about all the time and hassle I went tru because of this ..........." Sorry" and turned to help another customer. i asked for the manager,who told me there was known problem with these fuel pump hoses . they were "Chinaware".
Get a piece of neoprene hose ,it will do fine,mine has been in close to two years now.

Good Luck
Kenny

Shelby, This was Goodyear hose but I bet it is still made in China. I had not thought about using Neoprene because of the pressure but apparently that is not a problem, did you get a Neoprene gas line at the parts store?

re: In tank Fuel hose

Oldred
The piece that I got was from the Auto Parts that I got the pump from.It was already precut but the manager told me that they had rolls of it .So I have to assume that it would be a common item to have on hand ,you should be able to find it at any well stocked parts house.

Good Luck
Kenny
