Here's what I am talking about
BTW I called Oldsmobile Customer Assistance Center, some Indian guy answered. The only thing he could do was check active recalls with my VIN, not really anything other than that....... He couldn't speak English, and knew nothing about cars... well he could say fuel rail but apparently he didn't have any clue what was a fuel pressure regulator............... So this is the service all GM customers get? When he answered he said GM customer service instead of Oldsmobile, so I assume GM has the same customer service for all its brands.
Just call your local Cadillac dealership. Figured since they work on more N*'s they'd have more knowledge, get the right parts in and get it done quicker.
I was honestly amazed at the service the dealership provided me on a recall. I know they get paid via GM for it and they could probably care less about the customer, but they were much better then I could of imagined.
And yes, those metal lines are for your A/C system as Nelson said.
EDIT: I'm kinda lost, the way I read it on the last page I thought you said your fuel lines were metal, just not shiny......You've had the recall done? Why call GM Customer Assistance?

My dad said for recalls they get paid like 1/3rd time just like warranties, they HATE doing recalls/warranty repairs lol. Luckily to my amazement when I pulled my engine cover off to check, it already had the metal fuel rail recall done !

Hey ya'all, my so called '95 Aurora has the "heat-shrink" plastic tubing.. I went to the dealer and they said that my car was manuf'd in 1994 1/2, so, therefore they would not honour the "Fuel rail factory campaign".. Bunch of malarky! I even told them that if they supplied the parts, that I would perform the replacement myself.. also a "NoGo"!! crock of s#!t.
I had to upgrade from leaking plastic to 1/2 inch hydraulic hose, as the Gates 3/8's hose wouldn't fit on the nylon "barbs".. read taht it is ok for temporary service, however, after aboot a year and a half, it should be replaced due to gasoline rotting the inner surface and getting crud into the injectors! = major headaches!!! hope this helps. it cost me less than $10.oo for 3/8's hose, 1/2 hydraulic hose and six worm gear hose clamps.
You should be able to get it fixed because it is a safety issue. Keep in mind this only covers the 1995-1997 Aurora, the nylon lines were updated to work properly in 1998-99 models. This wouldn't cause your starting issues though. That could be caused by a number of things.

Hello Folks, Any tips on doing the stainless steel fuel rail recall? I'm in Canada, so the recall never applied here to my knowledge. In 2011 I bought a 1997 Aurora with 48,000km so the kids would have a car to drive to work etc. The car had a head gasket problem a year ago at 150,000km (2021) and I finally have that fixed properly with Northstar Performance head studs and new stainless steel/composite gaskets. In my case the bolts hadn't pulled, but the gaskets had rotted. I went for the head studs anyway to prevent that time bomb from happening. All that for a 1000 dollar car, but what a nice car despite the paint starting to peel off. When I bought the car, I ordered a new stainless steel fuel rail which I am about to finally install (to prevent the next time bomb) once new o-rings arrive. Any advice on the fuel rail installation that I should know about? I'll be doing this in the driveway when the weather warms up. Thanks, Fred Winterburn, Ripley Ontario Canada
