vacuum question

Recommended Posts

The clear hose from my fuel filler tube to a little canister thing is broken. Will this cause any running issues? Is this hose under vacuum? I tried replacing the hose but the clamp on the little part faces towards the body and can't attach a tool.I temporarily gave up after cutting myself multiple times. Please advise

At worst it is a fire hazard, since fumes can fill that area. A friend's esprit caught fire in that location for that same reason, he was lucky and it put itself out, and only melted some carpet.

It'll also mean your fuel system isn't pressurized, and it'd possible the pump might have a hard time supplying enough fuel with boost.

Also it'll make your garage smell like fuel.

It's an easy fix.
