Volvo high pressure gas return line. Help!
November 04, 2016 06:32PM
So after replacing tank after everything is done in the rear, I now discover that the return gas hose (the one that comes off a hardline, thru the panhard and back to the tank) is leaking. Bad. Neither IPD nor rockauto has them.

Anyone have an extra or know where one can be found? It's this one, in case I am explaining it horribly wrong.

That line shouldn't have high pressure in it.
Is is leaking from the fitting or the hose? If it's the hose, on mine it was a plastic line with a rubber protector around it, you should be able to go to a hose shop and have them replace the plastic line.

Yeah, you are 100% correct. Some 50psi fuel line and some clamps fixed that problem pronto. Then some loaner tires from Mr. Culbertson and some rain, and that Volvo was slip sliding all over the place.

4.88 welded diff, bald tires and rain makes for a lot of fun!
