Maybe a Salvage yard can help you. Try "Parts Locator. Com" for your part. Many will FedEx parts direct to you.

You may also try to splice with another compatible diameter line. Be sure to use the new fuel line that is approved for Alcohol fuels. You may want to contact Ford about the 1991 plastic line handling 10% gasahol anyway. It would be a good time to upgrade.

You would only need a fresh connector as I gather from your problem. Find a shorter Ford compatible end and you are in business.

It seems to have a gas leaks it smells like gas as soon as I start the car this morning I noticed a lil puddle under the car it looks like gas and smells like gas

The fuel lines are under pressure. The fuel pumps in today's cars are located in the tanks. Driving the car knowing that you have a gas leak is not a choice and the car will need to be fixed where it stands. If the car is inside the garage it only adds to the concern.

The most likely cause is animals like rabbits or squirrels or big mice have chewed on the gas line. It must be the ethanol in the fuel that attracts them.

At the dealer this is an expensive repair. A qualified garage with a certified technical may install a kit for less.. Squirrels Eating Wires and Fuel Lines

Your auto insurance may cover the expense and possible towing.

Strong gas odor outside of the car once it has been driven then parked. What could this be ? I have an extended warranty.

This is a very dangerous and serious concern. Do not store car in the garage. I would not drive this car. This car needs to be serviced by a qualified automotive service technician .

One of the most likely causes are squirrels or other types of animals chew into the plastic fuel lines. I have been told it is the ethanol in the gas? Others clam that it is the soy in the wires. Rodents have been reported eating the wires and fuel lines of cars parked at airports?

89 300E, sitting for 2 years, getting fuel to fuel distributor, but not to injectors. How does the fuel distributor work? and how can I test it?

The fuel distributor is mostly mechanical. It does however require a few signals from a small computer for idle speed and mixture adjustment.. I would look close for broken/chewed wires. Does the air flow meter move freely? Thats the large plate right in the middle of the distributor.

What tools do you need to change a inline fuel filter

It depends on how your truck is equipped. Ford trucks use Two different styles of connectors. Although both styles will connect to the same filter, one is held together by plastic clips and the other is held by spring locks.

If yours has the plastic clips, you simply need a small screwdriver to remove the clips from the connector. They will usually break when you try to remove them. Not to worry, because the new fuel filter should come with new clips in the box (you are supposed to replace them anyway).

If your vehicle is equipped with the spring locks, then you will need a fuel line disconnect tool (available at ANY retail auto parts store) to release the connectors from the fuel filter. In this case, you do not need the clips that come in the box, you can simply discard them.

The fuel line tools come in different variations from metal to plastic to the ones that can fit several size fuel ad A/C hose to those that are only good for one size hose. The one that I have found to work on Ford products the best for me is made by OEM Specialty Tools. I use it at least once a week and it is a very well constructed tool (MUCH better than the plastic ones). It is available at AutoZone for $7.99. I have included a picture of it below.

2008 ford edge water wont drian from a/c tubing cant locate how to blow out leaves collected there

under the truck there should be a little black tube. Using some light gauge wire, Stuff it up inside the tube and get the debris free from is, after this you will need to open the HVAC system ( I like to go through the blower motor opening, which you will need to remove the blower motor) and vacuum out the debris.

Hi, my 1998 dodge durango front AC/Heater blower motor run on and off, after the fan shuts down and stops running if I reah under the dash and hit the plastic fan housing it will start-up running but it...

If you can hit on the blower motor housing and the motor starts, your brushes on the motor are bad and the blower motor needs to be replaced. Used tested unit $30.00 at a junkyard. New rebuild $54.00.

Many posts have stated that the dash must be removed to replace the blower motor. It can be done without removing the dash. I know as I replaced the blower motor on my kids 99 Durango last night but it took about 4 hours. Now that I know how to do it, it would estimate 2 hours.

Remove glove box by opening glove box all the way. Press inward on the both sides of the glove box to allow the rubber stops to clear the catches and lower the box The two outer hinges (plastic) will come off by slightly twisting the glove box upward leaving only the center hinge (plastic) in place. Reach in and push down on the hinge to pull out glove box. Set aside.

Remove side trim panel by pulling back carpet and remove one Phillips screw. Remove panel by pulling back on upper portion to remove clip from frame, then slide forward to remove from lower plastic trim.

Use 1/4" nut driver or socket to remove two screws holding vacuum canister on lower right side of blower shroud. Remove two vacuum hoses noting which hose goes to which side of the vacuum canister (both were green in color on my Durango). Disconnect connecting rod from vacuum canister to vent control by removing lock washer (you may be able to get away with not removing the rod, but the plastic "fin" may break if you stress it while removing the blower shroud.

Use 5/16 nut drivers/sockets with extensions to remove the blower shroud hex bolts. The hex bolts are located in several areas around the shroud (use your finger to follow shroud edges to locate all 8). Some of the hex bolts are very tricky and may require odd positioning of your body to locate and remove them.. I also put several extensions to use in order to reach the various hex bolts. Once the hex bolts are removed, pull the plastic blower shroud down exposing the blower motor squirrel cage.

Remove two of three hex nuts holding blower motor in place. Loosen the third one and the blower motor should come free. I was not able to remove the squirrel cage from the old motor so I broke the squirrel cage allowing me to expose the wire harness and grommet that went through the back of the shroud.

Feeding the wire harness back through the assembled wall appeared to be a real challenge, so I cut the green and black wires at the motor for splicing into the new motor later. Remove the motor and broken squirrel cage and throw the dam thing away.

Remove squirrel cage from new motor by removing retention clip with a pliers. Pull off the squirrel cage carefully by applying WD40 (or other lubricant) to the shaft. You may have to place two large screw drivers or other pry bars underneath the squirrel cage equally across the underside of the squirrel cage slowly prying up the cage. I accomplished this with a helper to hold the motor in place to allow equal pressure from both pry bars.

Cut green and black wires on new motor leaving enough wire to work in the tight area of the motor housing. Strip wires from old harness and new motor and apply **** splices for green to green and black to black. Add electrical tape for extra mechanical strength and insulation.

Place new motor into housing and secure the three mounting hex nuts. Turn on key and run blower to make sure it works. Install squirrel cage and retaining clip on motor shaft. Run again to make sure it works.

Install the balance of the items in the reverse order you removed them.

Good luck!

Squirrel ate some wires and vaccum lines...will not crank

Darn squirrels, the did that to my Ranger in my back yard a few years back.

If it was the same one, he only broke them, didn't really eat them and if you get you some good wire connectors, you can crimp them back together without much problem. (the wires)

The vacuum hoses if there is enough to connect can be repaired with just splicers available at the local auto parts stores, along with any additional hose or wiring you need to replace.

I prefer to solder all of my connectors by removing the plastic they come with & then shrink wrap them once securely soldered, that way the won't ever lose their connection or require additional amperage to draw through.

The wires should match up pretty easily, due to color coding but you may want to just do a double check if you have more than one of the same color. A digitall Multimeter helps and prevents damage to electrical components when searching for voltage values.

good luck

1998 Dodge Ram 1500 Squirrel chewed through wires...

I bet that squirrel won't need any laxitaves for awhile. You are going to end up match and soldering, or just taping like color wires no mater what venue you take. The salvage yard is your best bet. Are you reffering to the area where the three relays are mounted?

Squirrel chewed wiring on air cond low pressure switch

I am going to say that you are really really most likely going to need a new connector. There are 2 ways of doing this: the cheap way and the expensive way. I will go over both.
Expensive; Call up your local toy dealership and see IF they will sell you just the connector. They will undoubtedly try and sell you a new harness- good luck. Same goes for parts stores.
Cheap; Go to your local auto salvage/ recycling place wit a pair of wire cutters and snip yourself off one about 3" from the base of the connector. Match the colors at home, do some splicing an voila! you now have A/C!!!!!! Once this is all said and done take your handy bottle of extra strength tobasco sauce, and rub it on your wires under the hood be careful as to not let the tobasco get into your connectors as that will cause them to short out and it's back to the scrapyard for you. If the tobasco does not work then try d- con stashed in your engine compartment. If that doesn't work then you are looking at hanging out for a day with a beer in one hand and your red ryder BB gun in the other. I wish you the best of luck and I hope this helps!
