Engine Mechanical problem
1991 Geo Prizm 4 cyl Front Wheel Drive Automatic 140k miles
My husband and I attempted to remove the fuel filter in our 91 Geo Prizm, but were unable to get the bottom flare nut off - we took it to a reputable mechanic, and they also could not get it off, and had to cut the line.
They since have not been able to replace any type of filter with any combination of clamps or lines or o-rings, etc. Because to my understanding that bottom flare nut leaks heavily with any filter they can use that accurately attaches to the top line. The Chevy Dealer in town was unable to give them any advice on parts besides the possibility of metric measurements, which the mechanics were aware of.
Any advice you can give? They've essentially told us they can't replace it, so now we have a car that's been in the shop for over two weeks with no fuel filter nor any options of having one installed so that it's safely driveable.
Thank you for your time.
