Assuming your talking about the circular line release tools?

The cheap plastic versions do not work very well on older lines that have even a little rust... The 2 piece metal line release tools work excellent, but $5-12$ for plastic / $30-99$ for metal, and higher if your talking mac,matco,snap-on ect for the metal set..

Some times you have to grasp the fuel filter and the tool with one hand, grasping the filter with your palm while still keeping a lot of pressure on the tool going into the filter connection with your fingers.. Then with your other hand grab the fuel line and begin to push both hands together then pull apart...repeat till it comes out..

Make sure you have the right size tool on the line.. I've seen people try to use the wrong size tool many times... With the plastic release tools I have experience with the tool snaps on the line very tight..
If this does not help please let me know and i will assist you in another way.

How do you remove an inline fuel filter

IF you don't have release tabs(I'm assuming it's a snap together fitting)you'll need a release tool.It is basically a plastic tube that has a split in it.You slip the tool on to the line,and push it into the fitting,which will release the clip.(any auto parts or tool store would have a set of these release tools,mine are made by Lisle)

How to change fuel filter for f150 super cab 2002


The fuel filter is located just ahead of the fuel tank on the driver side. It's tucked inside the frame. You'll need to go to the parts store and get the special tool to release the lines. You push the tool in where the lines and the filter push together. This will release the line. Sometimes it takes a little finessing. Remove the fuel filter. Push the fuel lines on the new one. That's it. It's a good idea to release the fuel pressure before starting all this. Otherwise you'll end up with gas spraying all over for a second.

Take care.

I have a 1995 Ford E-350 with a 5.8L engine.i am trying to replace the inline fuel filter. Your answer earlier about "plastic clips" is incorrect. Mine has steel spring clips that snap over the crimped on...

You will need a fuel line quick connect removal tool to release the inner clips holding the line in the filter.when you purchase the tool make sure you get the correct size for the line.

Name of toll to release the fuel filter lines?

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.

Fuel filter

unbolt the filter from the bracket, that is a 5/16" machine screw head size, then remove the nylon clips that hold the lines onto the filter, hold a rag over the fuel line when u remove it, it will have about 30 pounds of pressure.

Removing fuel line from fuel filter

Hi, Fuel filters and some other hose connections on vehicles today use a clip mechanism that is easily released with a small plastic tool. These tools are available in most auto parts stores. They come in a set to accommodate different size hoses, and metal barbs. Simply put the longer end of the tool toward the fitting and press to release. Good Luck!

How do I replace a fuel filter on a 2000 f-150?

you got to have a special tool to release the fuel lines, the tool slids between the fuel line and filter and opens a round spring to let the line slip over the filter flage.

Fuel problems

a rouph idle or running rouph could be a couple of things

1. you may need to clean you carberator or fuel injectors.
2. you may need to change your spark plugs
3. if you can drive and be fine and when you try to get into the gas and it tryies to bog and idle rouph than you may have an hair line fracture in the distributor cap..
but it sounds like a fuel problem... also if you have run it low on gas latley you may sucked up all the dirt at thebottom of your fuel tank clogging you fuel filter... so check that as well. the fuel filter is usually the cheapest to change... if this doesn't help the only thing i can think of othe than that is check your catalitic converter it my be trying to clog and if it does your truck will not run right or run at can check this by taking the exust loose from the manifold and running your engine... if this doesn't help e-mail me and i will help you through this problem....
