Fiat fuel check valve

Recently I read a message about Fiats which become difficult to start after sitting over a few days. This was linked to a malfunctioning fuel check valve. I have this problem but have been unable to locate a replacement valve even at Fiat parts suppliers. Does anyone know of a reliable source for such check valves?

Re: Fiat fuel check valve

a fuel check valve is just a one way valve that allows fuel to enter the tank and not leave it. how could that prevent the engine from starting?
