PLEASE FOR ALL YOU A-HOLES OUT THERE ON THIS FOURM DONT REPLY ANYTHING IF YOU DONT HAVE ANYTHING NICE TO SAY OR ANY INPUT OUT ON THIS BECAUSE I NEED HELP AND IVE TRIED LOOKING ON THE FOURMS BUT PEOPLE JUST DONT HAVE WRITE UPS ON HOOKING UP FUEL LINES...
IF YOU HAVE THE TIME TO POST SOMETHING STUPID THEN YOU HAVE THE TIME TO ANSWER MY QUESTIONS... I DONT NEED RUDE COMMENTS THANK YOU.

so ive ran into numerous problems with this k20a3. well for one i dont know where all the fuel lines go very nooby. i know that the fuel pump goes to the fuel pressure regulator to the fuel rail and then the other 2 lines i just dont know where they go... one is for the emission tank and the other one is for the return fuel. but yet i dont know where they're supposed to go. yet again nooby stuff.. there are 2 lines in the back of the k20 do those lead to the coolant for inside the car.?

another question is how can i refill the tranny fluid on the k20.... ( dont say that it doesnt need to be changed because there is non in there...)

If you need pictures to what im talking about just ask and i can post some up

Post up some pics we were all new at this one time but pictures would help us to help you. As we would know which fitting , hoses ,ect... your talking about and where they need to go. Also do you still have the stock hard lines (fuel) in the car they are located down under the brake master cyl on the drivers side and run under the car back to the fuel tank on the drivers side of the car

I actually have a question can I lead the fuel pump to one side of the fuel rail then the other side into the fuel pressure regulator. Then the return fuel on the bottom of the fpr and then the emissions tank to the fpr?

As far as trans I would make sure all the old fluid is out by removing the lower drain plug and then run either Honda mtf or Amsoil synchromesh works very well for me. I fill mine thru the fill plug in the side of the trans you have to remove the large plug on the drivers side its like a 17 mm and top it off til it runs out .I use a small hand pump to do its kinda in a tight spot and a little difficult to get to .

I think it calls for 1.7 or 1.8 quarts if I am not mistaken however I have always filled all my transmissions til it just runs out the top fill hole and have never had any issues .I cant see how or why you would pull the speed sensor its a huge pain in the ass to get to compared to the fill plugs as it sits right under the rear mount

You just extend it with connectors designed for battery cable or you might be able to find something at a radio shack that you could use as well to extend it

ok so the an line for the return fuel is it possible if i just use a hose? because it would initially do the same as it would with a an line. plus when it was stock you had to cut it out anyways would that work? or could that be possibly dangerous?

for the return I would just use the stock return metal hard line. I have seen guys use a -AN fitting on the bottom of the frp then just shove the other end of the AN hose onto the stock metal return line and clamp the hell outta it but its not my way of doin things but thats just me
