If it's a rust-through....this is bad moo-joo~ beacause the other side of all that crunchy rust ends up in your fuel filter...changed your fuel filter recently? Tom is right, go with the new one, pay to have it installed (workin' with gas is NO fun) and you'll be happy with the car (at least that part of it)~
