I am just returning my car to its stock state. I did not do the original setup so I m not sure exactly what till happen if I disconnect this one thing.

It is a Nitrous Express using a dry application.

I have removed the jet and all that other stuff but heres my problem.

I have a tube running from my jet thats coloured red and says 'Fuel' on it. Beside it, it has a blue one that is called 'N2O'.

Following the red tube to a solenoid, then from the solenoid the tube goes to what 'appears' to be a gas line? I am not sure. It is tapped in so that I have the regular line then it T splits so that fuel continues through, but the bottom of the 'T' goes to this solenoid.

My question is, is it safe to disconnect this??????

I don't want to be spraying gasoline all over my engine if I disconnect it. This line leads from the firewall, to quite possibly the injectors, I haven't been able to lift the plastic decoration on my engine to look at it throughly. There are two lines, one that goes to my left bank of the V6 and the other to my right.

IF I do need to take this off, and gas may spew then I might need to simply buy a cap so that I can put it on, then some how strip the thread I guess.

I need to take this apart since my dealership told me within the next couple weeks, my Tiburon will be in and he wants me to make that kit disappear to give me a good trade in.

Thanx if you can help.

Get a doulbe male hose connector, the same size as the tee. Put rags all around the tee, when you pull the "tee-ed" hose off of it, there will be some spraying <img src=/images/forums/snitz/smile.gif width=15 height=15 border=0>. Pull out the tee and replace it with the double male. After you thoroughly dry all of the fuel, you can wrap some electrical tape around everything to hide the hose clamps.

This sounds like something I can screw up, I don't like that whole spraying stuff all over the place, making a mess, something potentially not working. <img src=/images/forums/snitz/uhh.gif width=15 height=15 border=0><img src=/images/forums/snitz/uhh.gif width=15 height=15 border=0> Cause leave it to me to be blow something up. Unless this is just whatever gas is left in the hose itself? Then thats no problem!

I ll pay the $40 to get someone else to do it. <img src=/images/forums/snitz/thumbup.gif width=25 height=18 border=0>

It's just the gas that's left in the hose. There will be some spraying because it's under pressure. The only way to relieve the pressure is to disconnect the electricl wires to the fuel pump and run the car until the motor dies. It's easier to just put some rags around the hose and disconnect it. It will only spray for about one second.

Thanx man!

I decided to instead replace the whole hose. I was talking to the guy at Canadian Tire and he said that they only had male hose connectors that were made of plastic (gas corrodes plastic quickly) and recommended that I replace the hose since the amount of pressure from the Fuel Injected engine is so high.

I might as well replace the whole hose if its not that big a problem and that way no one complains in the end. I could careless really what happens to the car 3 monthes down the road, but at least make the person that buys it from the dealership happy and possibly buy a new Hyundai again. <img src=/images/forums/snitz/wink.gif width=15 height=15 border=0>

I should have it done then by Sunday and I will be N20less for a year. <img src=/images/forums/snitz/cry.gif width=16 height=16 border=0><img src=/images/forums/snitz/cry.gif width=16 height=16 border=0><img src=/images/forums/snitz/cry.gif width=16 height=16 border=0>

Simple fix. All you need is a hacksaw, blow torch, double male connector, and some solder

Start by lighting a cigarette. This will clear your mind before you start working on something that could greatly affect your ride. Crawl under your car. (use jackstands if it is jacked up any) Keep the cig in your mouth and start cutting. Carefully avoid the gasoline spray from coming in contact w/ your face and cigarette. That could be a bad thing. Anyway, cut off the T. Now, place your male connector in there. Put out your cigarette and light your blow torch.........
.......
.......
.......
.......
Do you still have a face? If yes then gently apply the flame to the gas line.
.
.
.
.
.
Still alive? Good! Now press the solder against the seams where the male connector meets the fuel lines.
.
.
.
.
Careful some of that gas MIGHT be flamable.
.
.
.
.
As soon as you have soldered both sides of the male connector turn off your torch. Congrats you have just defied death.<img src=/images/forums/snitz/laugh.gif width=15 height=31 border=0><img src=/images/forums/snitz/thumbup.gif width=25 height=18 border=0>

I followed your steps, and I got caught on the cigarette part. All I remember is that spray of gas and nitro coming at me very slowly then bursting into a big green flame <img src=/images/forums/snitz/laugh.gif width=15 height=31 border=0><img src=/images/forums/snitz/laugh.gif width=15 height=31 border=0>

Smiley I'm still trying to figure out where it was spliced to!!! this system takes fuel and mixes it with nitrous then sprays but that means it's wet not dry!! I'll need to see a pic or up close since there are 2 lines, 1 return and 1 pump direct and it depends on which one ( the pump direct I assume ) it was spliced to.

I didn't do the setup myself so I m not sure...like the hose appears to be a fuel line, and I think quite possibly the solenoid takes some fuel and mixes it with the N2O and O2 then sends it to the intake manifold then into the engine.

I am 99% sure it is gas.

Don't worry about it, I ll put it up on a jack, and just rip the whole stupid hose out and replace it this weekend.

I'll just post if it worked or not cause at this point its frustrating me a little and my stupid TWAIN drivers for my camera are f'ed up and its becoming more of a hassle then I though.

*Hopefully this doesn't become the same hassle as my battery relocate that I did, that I couldn't figure out why the hell the car didn't start! (Not a proper ground)*
