You'll need to have a fuel line disconnect tool. This tool can be made of plastic or metal, but the utilization is the same. You can purchase these tools at most auto parts stores. The fuel lines have a "quick disconnect" end on them where the filter attaches. After you've relieved the pressure from the fuel line (line pressure's usually around 60psi so you should wear eye protection). Techniques vary you can remove the fuel pump relay, and start the engine till it shuts down, or (needs another special tool). Attach hose from tool to test port on fuel rail by injectors and drain fuel into suitable container. You can also remove the cap from the test port and with a rag covering the port to catch fuel, depress the schrader vale (like a tire valve). This isn't really the best way,because gasoline can get on you and will inevitably get on the engine. Not always a good situation if engines hot. (To be honest with you, at work I usually just slightly disconnect the line at the filter. Only enough to bleed the fuel pressure off and let it drain into a bucket.) To remove, you'll have to insert the tool into the line around the filter neck at one end. You'll then be able to separate it from the filter. Repeat on other end. You may have to wiggle and twist a bit, as the filter necks might be sticking to the o-ring seal in the connector. Don't force it, as you can damage the connection, and you'll then be purchasing new fuel lines. Most of these filters are retained in a bracket on the frame rail using a big hose clamp. Naturally you'll have to loosen that to pry out and remove the filter. Aside from the initial fuel spillage, and any fuel that might drain down through the lines, the fuel in the tank will remain in the tank. Typically the filter is mounted well above the tank where the pickup tube is located, so siphoning won't be an issue.
I hope this helps

How can you drain gas or syphon gas out of the gas tank


You can't! For a whole not most vehicles, except trucks with exposed fuel tanks, have safety meshes or springs in the filler pipe to prevent fuel theft. The only way to get fuel out of a tank is to break into the fuel supply line near the tank at a joint and draw fuel from that point. This may not work either if the fuel pump is mounted in the tank and it does not allow for a free flow, The last option is the rubber connection between the filler pipe and the fuel tank, This is usually in a very awkward position so good luck.

How to get fuel lines off if they have mud in them?


first thing pressure wash all the mud off the fuel filter area and I would try to change the fuel filter first before you go through all the tank cleaning and flushing and use some techron fuel additive to clean your injection system drop the tank remove the pump and replace the screen on the pump take the fuel tank to the radiator shop and have them hot tank it and clean it. use the special tools to release the spring and slide the fuel lines off. Remove the fuel filter then pump non flammable solvent through the line from the tank to the filter then disconnect the fuel lines at the engine and fuel canister. then flush those lines (you can buy a hand siphon pump at autozone) blow the lines out with air. install the tank replace the fuel filter hook up the engine compartment fuel lines you dont have to remove the line

Changing the fuel filter


Your gas tank is in the back of your car between the frame rails. The fuel line runs up toward the engine along the drivers side frame rail on the inside of the frame rail. The fuel filter is located along that fuel line inside the drivers side frame rail, about at the back of your front door. You should be able to trace the fuel line all the way to the intake of your engine. Once you locate the fuel filter, you will need a special tool to remove the filter from the line. You should be able to get the 'fuel filter tool' at your local auto parts store for under $10. The tool has a flanged end on it, and it 'scissors' open and closed. Place the proper sized end on your fuel line just in front of the filter so that the flange sticks in toward the filter. Gently push the tool in toward the filter, while pulling back on the fuel line. The line should come disconnected. Remember, the fuel line is pressurized and may spray gas for a second or two when it comes apart. Then do the same to the other end of the fuel line. Good luck. Any problems, write back.

Need to change fuel filter


You have to buy a special tool, Ford Fuel Filter Removal tool. The filter is located on the driver side frame rail, back towards the gas tank. Slide the tool over the fuel line and push it into the end of the filter, then pull the line out. Make sure you have the flow pointing in the right direction when you put the new one on.

I have a 1989 Bronco 2 and it is not getting the fuel right. I think it is the fuel pump. Does anyone think what else it would be. I already replaced the filter. How would I replace the fuel pump?


The fuel pump is in the tank. Drop the gas tank.

1. Support the gas tank with a jack or something
2. unbolt the gas tank straps
3. unscrew the rubber filler neck going to gas tank
4. Lower gas tank slowly and disconnect gas lines
5. Turn the retainer ring that holds the fuel pump in the tank and left out.
6. Drain gas into gas cans to make the gas tank easier to left
7. Replace fuel pump and reinstall gas tank.

1996 Ford Bronco Fuel Pump Replacement


A 1996 Bronco fuel pump is in the tank. The tank will have to be dropped. After that, it's quick & easy. The filter is on the rail, not so easy even with the line removal tools. Wear safety glasses in case of any pressure.
