Ford has several different sizes for full size, not sure about rangers though. They are called fuel line tools though. Did you blow air through the connecters to remove all dirt? How about removing the metal clips that are there as a saftey measure? Those clips looke like a weird J shape that helps prevent accidental disconection.

The fuel filter is located inside the frame rail on the drivers side under the truck, it is a round canister about the size of a soup can. The lines are held on by internal spring clips and you need a special tool to release them. The line release tool kit is available from A\any NAPA or Carquest or Autozone auto parts store for about $8.00 or less. See pictures below of tool and filter.

How to replace fuel filter on 1990 ford ranger

Locate the filter under the drivers door area. You will need the Ford quick disconnect removal tool(small round spring release button type tool) These hose removal tools are available at a parts store, You can get the "set" for around $20.00. A must have for the do it your selfer. When you have the tool insert the nose of the tool into the coupler on the end of the tube. (there may be a plastic retainer clip to remove first on the tank side of the filter, and a metal clip on the engine side.) When the tool is in place press toward the hose which you are removing and the coupler should dis-engage from the line. You may have to pull hard, and twist it a bit. The tool releases the push to connect mechanism inside to allow the hose to be removed.

How do you disconnect the fuel filter from the fuel line 1997

Hello coreyschwand: My name is Roger and i will answer your question. In order to release the fuel filter you will need a special tool. This is available from any parts store. You will need to push the tool into the cavity of the fuel line to release the fingers. Do not try to pull the lines apart without the tool. You will damage the lock.
Should you need further help please just ask. Please rate the quality or your answer as this is how we know you received th answer you wanted. Thank You for using Fix Ya. Roger
