Fuel lines

Asked by Sep 18, 2016 at 10:16 PM about the 2004 Pontiac Aztek AWD

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

I just bought a 2004 Pontiac aztek. I have spent a
whole week working on the brakes and brake lines.
I just got them completed tonight and found that I
need to replace the fuel lines as they are
completely rusted. My question is does anyone
know if this is a hard/dangerous job to do? And
how much might it cost to do at home versus
sending it to a shop?any input would be greatly
appreciated. Thanks

Disconnect the battery, Read the repair book and see if you need to relieve fuel pressure first and how to do so and be sure to put a new fuel filter on. Would save money and time because they may not get to it for days. Lines are cheap it would cost 5-6 times that much in labor.

If u decide to do it urself, locate fuel pump relay and remove it, run engine till it dies out, this will get rid of residue pressure in the lines. Replacing the lines is a little tricky bacause u have the entire line to feed through frame and components. Good luck!
