I have a 1993 Chevy Corsica (4 door sedan, V6). I am faced with getting the fuel line repaired. Since the part is not made anymore, I have to take the car to the dealer (which of course will cost more). I am afraid that, if I get the leak fixed, I am going to end up paying more than my car is worth. I am aware that since the fuel lines are already rusting, as they are moved around during repair, it may become apparent that the entire line needs replacement. However, this car, although old, has relatively few miles on it, 88,000, and is pretty reliable (ignoring the leaking gas right now) and good in the snow. Any suggestions???
