95 Cavalier leaking gas just ahead of rear left wheel
The car had a new gas tank installed about a year ago and now we have
this leak. Hard to see last night but there appeared to be about 4
lines running along behind the rocker panels and the leak appears to
originate from the group of lines as they go in and around the rear
fender well. They are all rusted.
Anyway that's what it looks like. I just wanted to know how serious a
repair bill I am looking at and what the repair might involve. In the
old days I might have been able to do an at home job but that's out of
the question now.
I believe if there is just a spot leak, a length of fuel hose can be spliced
into the line to repair the damaged portion. However, if the line is in bad
condition overall, a more extensive repair would probably be wise to prevent
it from springing another leak elsewhere.
