I recently had to replace the fuel tank in my blazer. When doing so when I removed the fuel pump as I was re-installing it I broke off one of the nipples on the top of the pump. Will this effect if my car would start or not if I pushed the hose back onto the nipple?

Do you
have the same problem?

Is the nipple still long enough for the hose to push on? Is it an evap hose? It might set trouble codes? I believe it will start and run ok.

I didn't see the first post. If it is going to leak gas, I wouldn't risk it.
