NISSAN Pictures of how I replaced the leaky fuel rail hose and stopped the gas smell on cold mornings on my 87-95 Nissan Pathfinder.

But first, lets pay some bills:

  1. Plug wires in the way of the fuel rail.

  2. Marked the wires, removed them, now I can get to the fuel hose. The fuel rail is in two sections, left and right, connected by this little length of hose.

  3. Wrestled the old hose out, mangling the hose and my knuckles. Then I finished my beer. Cut a new length of 5/16" fuel injection hose, about 3.75" long. See that, see how I got all the fuel hose specs in the picture there? Man, I need a beer.

  4. Put in the new piece of fuel line hose. Needed a bit of oil to slide it on. Now I just tighten the ... D'OH!
    no hose clamps

  5. Now I just tighten the hose clamps! Worked well, no more fuel smell on cold mornings. The rest of the reinstallation is the reverse of blah blah blah.

  6. Next I sold out to make 02ยข so I can fulfill my lifelong dream of owning a 1986 944 with blown head gaskets.

    But no minivans!

  7. Then I finished my beer.
