It appears I have a leak in the fuel line that goes from the filter to the engine. Has anyone ever made a replacement line or taken your hose and made a hose to replace the existing lines with just sone braided fuek linr anf reused the stock connectors. Or does anyone know where to get a oem house without spending hundreds of dollars. Seems like it would be a lot cheaper to just make your own hose

First, you need to find the location of the leaks; you can buy repair lines from auto parts stores and fix it, by splicing in a new end or section out the leaking portion.

Its leaking somewhere in the uniframe. Where the lines are covered i would have to pull the line out to fix it. Being that they are plastic and old couldnt they break more coming out or even worse going back in?

Anything is possible, it is definitely repairable or replaceable; in the links i posted, there are repair kits and even full spools of plastic fuel line, if you decided to swap in a whole new fuel line.

Those, who did repairs; used wire to pull through new repaired line sections and complete the repairs in access problem areas.

Update. My car is not leaking fuel. Its either cobdesation or coolant. I am now having a problem with it trying to stall and no throotle response with a hard start at times. Ive changed air and fuel filter and did a oil change. I dont think its fuel pump related. Could i be having pcv valve problem. Or could the secondary air pump be the problem. It could even be throotle body related.

A common problem with high mileage 2.0L’s is a dirty throttle body; causing rough idle, stalling and a hard start.

You might clean it snd do a tba procedure.

I have yet to get a vag-com but i have a obd11 scanner and im also missing my catalytic convertor so I have 4 codes 2 for each sensor. These four codes have not caused me problems in the last 13,000 miles. I believe i will clean my throttle body and go from there
