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.

Is the security light on? If you have spark and fuel, it should run. Any codes? Could be bad crank sensor or cam sensor.

these are drum brakes I assume, start but only taking apart one side and leave the other side to gether if you get lost in the reassembly, do not take the brake adjuster from one side of the car to the other they are different, one is right hand thead one is left, you need a blade screw driver and a pair of pliers some antiseize, springs hold everything together, go slow and you should be fine. Replace worn, cracked, pads, use sandpaper to clean up the drums if they are rusty from sitting, you can get them measured to make sure they are not worn out at you local supply store, if they are good reuse them, a can of brake cleans will clean up all the old brake dust and is much safer then compresed air, don't breath the dust! Lubricate behind the shoes where they contact the backing plate, you will see rub marks, turn the adjusters all the way in upon assembly, place drum on car and turn side to side, they should be free, turn out adjuster until it just starts to drag on the drum, bleed the brakes with a friend and check that drum is still free. Good luck.
