The clips will be one of two varieties, which may depend on if you have a V6 or V8. Here's both solutions:

On one type, you should be able to just squeeze the clip with your fingers with firm pressure. If this doesn't work, then you my have to use channel locks or pliers to squeeze the clip. The fuel line will be held in by an O-ring more than likely, and it'll be a little tough to pull apart.

On the other type, you have to use quick disconnect tools. You can find them at any auto parts store. There's different kinds, the cheapest being a pack of different colored plastic ones. They're really cheap, maybe a few bucks.

The colored plastic will designate the size of the fuel line clips. Usually they come in packs of four...blue, red, white, etc.

Just insert these with the flange facing the clip, slide it in, and you'll feel it unlock. Pull apart the fuel line from the filter.

NOTE: Make sure you release the fuel pressure. And make sure you have rags as well as a container to catch the gas. If it's under pressure, it WILL spray you with gas, so be sure to release the pressure using the schrader valve on the fuel rail that feeds your injectors.

The fuel filter will probaby be a little stiff getting off since the O-ring will be old. Just make sure you wrap the line in a rag and avoid getting sprayed. Eye protection is recommended.

You have most likely sucked residue in the bottom of the fuel tank into your fuel filter, This can cause it to get blocked, Try fitting a replacement fuel filter as it's most likely it's never been changed anyway.

Why is my 1995 3.4 liter 6 cylinder Pontiac firebird less fuel efficient than it was 2 months ago and how do i change the fuel pump


I don't know why its not fuel efficient. But the fuel pump is inside the fuel tank. you should not attempt to replace it yourself, and don't change it on a whim. prove that's its bad, its an expensive guess.

How do u install a fuel filter for an 1988 Pontiac Trans am


It's located where the fuel line enters the carburetor. I'm not exactly sure what you're asking. But in any event. Remove the fuel line without twisting it. Remove the filter housing (it too unscrews) remove the spring that holds the filter in and remove the filter. The filter is installed with the opening facing out towards the fuel line so that fuel can enter the center, pass through the filter, and enter the carb.
Hope that helps.

the relay for the fuel pump is in the engine compartment,you can try to remove it and put it back in,while the key is in the run position.if you hear the pump working try turn ignition off and on untill you develop fuel pressure.
