Re: Fuel filter nut corroded and rounded on fuel line - any suggestions?
Back from the dead with my thread lol - just thought I would update that I never really got the fuel filter out no matter what I did. About 6 months ago I took it to Meineke here and they said that the entire front fuel line would need replaced cos it was siezed at the nut and they do not undertake that sort of work lol. Last week, I took it to our local Caddy dealer here in Springfield IL and let me tell you I would NEVER go there again. I was expecting to pay a little bit but their service dept. basically did not want to work on it! The guy started telling me how it was gonna cost me alot and then when I said it was ok, he said how they might not have the fuel line in stock and it could take a while to get it and then to top it off he basically told me to go try some repair shop!!! Wow - a dealership??? I WOULD NEVER GO TO LANDMARK CADILLAC IN SPRINGFIELD IL AGAIN!!
Well I came back home in disgust and then remembered taking my Expedition to a shop here to get the brake lines replaced and they did a great from although it costed alot. Long story short - I took the Caddy there and told them what happened - took them a few hrs and they had the fuel filter replaced WITHOUT replacing the line. I looked at it when I brought it home and the lines did not look beat up or damaged, etc. I still wonder what they did to loosen it cos I tried everything!
Oh well its done now I still think its sad when a specialist dealer cannot do it and an aftermarket smaller shop can. Shame on our local caddy dealer!
