XJ problem

I have an 88 XJ, 4.0. Fuel rail to pressure line seal has picked up a leak. Looks like the seal is a slip on, snap lock nylon/plastic piece. No longer available from Jeep, can't find in my searching on Napa or O'Riley's. Local Napa gal couldn't dig it up either. Anybody know of a source?

Finding out all the big 3 used these clickers on fuel lines. Just a matter of pulling it out and matching it at the parts house.

Thanks guys, I'm registered on naxja, but it won't let me post. Guess because I don't pay dues.
Our parts people aren't real bright.. I did finally find an echlin line repair kit, #CRB212305, says for the 88 4.0. We'll see if it works.

Went out to pull it apart, wiggled and pushed, not leaking right now, but not trusting it. Drips directly on the exhaust manifold and downpipe. Don't really need a fire and go "BOOM"

Most of the XJ quick release fittings (like tranny cooler lines and I believe fuel lines) used a plastic clip, and 2 green nitrile o-rings. There was a plastic spacer between the 2 o-rings. When removing the plastic clip, look inside the cavity of the female line to see if any o-rings and/or spacer were left behind in there. It is not necessary to replace the plastic clip or spacer unless broken. The o-rings are what need replacing. Buy a nitrile kit of o-rings or get the exact ones you need from a hardware store or car parts store. Harbor freight sells a nitrile kit.



The "QUICK CONNECT" assembly is anything but quick to assemble. Lube the inside of female line with a light coating of silicone grease. Keep the parts on the male line that has the plastic connector (plastic connector, o-ring, spacer, o-ring). Hopefully the o-rings won't get pulled off of their spot on the maleline when being inserted in the female line.

Found it at Napa. #NOE7305617... For 5/16 rubber line. Came with all the seals and click lock. Whole fitting assembly, with barb end to the hose. I just cut off the factory fitting on the rubber line as tight to the fitting as possible. There's enough slack to not pinch or buckle the hose. Double clamped the barb fitting and done. 10 min fix.

A 3/8 fitting, same contents, same part #, except 19 instead of 17

Thanks guys appreciate the support and advice.
68- same available at Rock Auto, couple bucks more. After replacing that it was still leaking between the hose feurall and the short tube to the fitting. Suspect the hose was finally deteriorating.
