Fuel Supply Line Leak between line segments

Folks, I have a 2005 Excursion 2WD 6.0L with 57k miles. The fuel supply line between the pump and the secondary filter is leaking, a slow drip, at the coupling where the two fuel segments meet. The Ford does not offer a replacement o-ring for the hose, they want to replace it as an assembly. Do I really have to replace the lines????. Or is there a driveway repair I can make?

Thanks ahead of time for any help.

I will try to get a picture of the connection, I will have to disassemble it to get a good view. It is under the Air Filter, the drivers side front corner of the engine, at about cylinder head level. It is a fuel line to fuel line connection. I just can't believe that Ford considers it a non servicable connection, they want to replace the hose from the pump to the fuel line segment that goes up to the fuel filter.

Recent thread on truck catching fire and burning to the ground. This page of that thread has a nice shot from Tuscany of the fuel lines near where you are talking, I think.

6.0 catches fire

If you happen to need new line or lines, could you post up the part#s for us. I know quite often folks will twist their fuel lines when trying to do the blue spring update. (almost can read the number on Tuscany's photo)

Good catch Amdriven2liv,,, Thank you!

This shot captures the lines and the connection, look in the lower center of the shot, on my vehicle the upper connection is leaking, I assume it is fuel supply line and the second line is the fuel return line. Looking for a part number on the hose, I will have to go to the dealer to get it.

OK, so, twisting the lines while taking them off is bad...

In most parts houses there is a section where they have Lisle/Dorman help products, fasteners; gromets; body screws etc. There are several different size repai kits o-ring plus the little spring retainer for these pushlock fittings. I have used those before.


Lord I shall lead them to the water but I will not try to make them drink
