Hey guys I have a 96 impala and my fuel feed line is damaged and leaking. the line that is damaged is under the hood a little after the break booster where both the fuel feed n return make that little curve toward the back of the car. I do not kno what happen but I need helo fixing it.

Is there a repair kit I can purchase? I purchased the specialty tool to remove the hose from the engine but thats about it.

I read on the line its say "not repairable" so im woundering if I need a whole new line.

Would want to do my self if its possible.

I just moved to texas san antonio area and dont know alot of shops that could help or work on 96 impalas. If any of you know any info of what I can do or any shops near me I would appricate it. Im in universal city tx. Thank u

The parts stores sell a repair kit I have used. I took the fuel lines on my 95 Buick Roadmaster, and put them on my 93 Dodge Ram. The ends were different, so I had to use the kit to swap both fittings at the gas tank. You dip the lines in boiling water, stick a brass barb in, then press them together. So far, we have not had a leak. If you want a replacement curved section, I have a few parts cars that did not leak, and still have the lines in one piece. You would need to dip both ends in boiling water, then use the brass barb to join them.

A friend bought a Dorman shop kit that has new bulk coiled line and fittings and it has a clamp in it that does NOT need the lines to be dipped in boiling water. I think the kit was a couple hundred dollars though.
Being here in WI he and another friend have already had fitting rot out so in this case it was best to buy the kit as it has already fixed two cars.

Thanks for the reply guys.

Mr.buick. I think the one you are taking about us the one they have at napa. I was going to purchase it but it is only a straight line. I dont know if it makes a difference if the little curve is there or not out if I can bend the repair kit. Also what does it mean when the line says "not repairable"
