Need a special tool to release the hose fittings from the fuel filter. Without the tool it is not going to come off. You can borrow a fuel line disconnect set from checker auto. The have a nice Powerbuilt brand kit made of billet aluminium. The crappy cast-iron ones that look like scissors or the plastic ones don't work very well. The tool slides inside the fitting and releases it so you can slide it off easily. My 2000 explorer uses the 5/16" tool from the set to remove the line from the fuel filter. Note that some vehicles have a fitting that requires another type of tool that goes around the outside of the fitting and compresses some spring clips so the fitting slides off the filter.

Why wont my 1996 ford explorer start it turns over but wont start

You need to determine whether or not it is getting fuel and spark. It needs both to start. Remove one plug wire and hold it close to the engine while someone cranks it over. There should be spark from the plug wire. If there is spark, you will have a fuel supply issue. Possible fuel pump/relay/wiring/fuel filter/injectors not working to name a few. If no spark, possible crank sensor/ignition module/wiring.

How do you replace fuel line to nissan quest

get the new line.
bleed the old one because fuel is under pressure.
I would start under the hood, remove fitting, pull apart hoses.
run the new hose next to the old one.
connect under hood first then remove connection at gas tank.
attach hose at fuel tank. If there is an inline filter replace now will
save time since you are already under car.
Next pull old hose out and throw away.
Last push hose onto mounts from old hose. If they break use cable ties so hose stays in place.
enjoy your car.

Where is the fuel filter location for a 1996 crown victoria

It's front of the driver's rear tire,usually.If not,it'll be on the other side of the car.
Turn off the key and remove.
Open hood and release fuel pressure at the rail with the schrader type valve.
Don't use a bulb type trouble light under there as it can ignite gas easily.
Pry off the old clips after loosening the hold-down clamp. Turn head away as you slide off the hose on the tank side of filter.
Install new filter in holder,attach hoses and install new clips then tighten hold-down clamp. (:^)

Where is the fuel filter located?

The fuel filter is located underneath the car... rear door passenger side. It is a round, metal cylinder with a stem on each side. If current filter is rusted on, or tight...use PB blast, or other lubricant to help free it up. It's just a matter of removing a hose from each stem, and replace with new filter, and use retaining clips provided with new filter. Basically put it back same way you removed old one. And have a bucket with you for run-off, or spilling.

Just make sure you replace exactly how it comes off, paying mind to direction of fuel flow.

The filter is located under the truck on the driver side... You have to go to a auto parts store and buy a fuel filter key for that year!!

Location of fuel filter on a 1996 jeep country and does this take a special tool to remove old one.

I have a 96 Cherokee Sport, 4.0 L Automatic.
My mechanic showed me the fuel filter is bolted to the left of the fuel tank on the unibody frame rail. Access is very easy. It looks like a coffee can; slightly smaller, with a hose in each end. But the rubber hose had deteriorated under the extremely rusted metal clamps, which meant I needed an extra length of rubber hose. Kind of a pain.
