Its probably just worn out. If you're lucky maybe it happened near an end so you can just snip it off and reconnect it. This could buy you some time until you can get new ones.

dont worry happen to me spilled a good gal of veggie oil all over the place. Is it cracked and its leaking? might want to run over to kragen or an auto parts store and temporarly replace the line. If not find a petsmart or petco and replace the line with some aquarium air line.

Thats what i had to do over and over when that was happening to me, but if not just replace the line.

If you order from fastlane, get three of the segments they offer. Cut two in half to go inbetween the injectors and leave one whole to go from the filter to injector #1.

Cheap insurance. As they age, these hoses get hard. (Wish I was the same, but that's a different story...) If they are old, get a replacement piece of hose and cut them to length. You don't need that diesel stinking up the engine room.

Those lines get hard as they age. Get 1 meter of the stuff and replace all of them.
