I need to replace my filler neck on my 2000 STS. The replacement that dorman sells is $47 but has the two lines coming off it. The one I have is a single tube down to the rubber hose.
If someone has info. if the two line (vented) is easy to install? an option or not. The other option is $400.00.
The Dorman filler neck is not designed for your car if it has 2 lines.
Also I am not sure if $400 is the worst part. You may find out that having the $400 you can't get the OEM part either (may be discontinued by now).
Thanks for your input.
Rock auto has the Dorman part listed with the more expensive one as viable. Sorry the other part is $464.00 not $400.00.
The fuel neck was wore part way through by the tire after the leveling system failed. I would suggest a Design issue.
And the short hose connecting the filler neck with the fuel tank is $98 (at least for my year), been there done that.
I can’t imagine how the filer neck be damaged due to leveling system failure, even with the ELC out the spring should maintain the normal ride height (assuming no load is added to the rear). Also for gen IV Seville the filler neck is way away from the tire even if it bottoms out, not sure gen V (I would assume similar).
The plastic casing was wore away. I can see the metal tube and it seems OK (no spillage of fuel).
I believe the space between the inside of the plastic casing and the metal fuel tube is the pressure relief?
I just bought one for my 98 Eldorado at www.fillernecksupply.com $100 and change. Worked fine and they seemed like good people. Do not mess with it, a pinhole will eventually be a big hole and when you go to fill it with gas you'll have a flood, happened to me
