    The teeth are sometimes hard to release even with the tool. You must insert the tool to open the teeth around the fuel filter fittings. Then with on hand holding the tool into place as far as it will seat. Then using the other hand to slightly twist and pull the line free. It will take some man-handling sometimes. After it is pulled free you may notice that the teeth are bent or slightly out of order. You may remove the teeth from the line to repair them. You will notice that the teeth are arranged with one tooth short and on tooth long all the way around. The short teeth are used to keep them all in place. The longer teeth are used to catch the fuel filters flange and lock it. You may need to arrange the small teeth flat and the long teeth bent slightly inward. Replace the whole assymbly back into the line with the open ends of the teeth facing inside the line coupler. That should do it.

When you chaged the air filter & sprayed Gumout carb cleaner, you got rid of a little gunk in the
air intake, but when you added the fuel injector cleaner (its the same stuff as carburator cleaner) to the fuel tank, you "cleaned out" ALL the ****/gunk/buildup/dirt in the fuel system which has built up since 1991 and sent it straight to the fuel filter, which is now clogged. The reason that the car tries to start, but fails, is that it'll successfully burn up any fuel that gets past the clogged fuel filter, but the engine consumes that small amount of gasoline quickly, then dies.
Your solution: change the fuel filter.
The fuel filter is located:
Under vehicle, driver side, below seating area, near fuel tank, mounted on frame rail in fuel line

Try soaking it down with WD-40 and letting it sit for a bit. Usually you can heat up a sticky screw/bolt and get it to break, but since youre next to the gas tank, its not recommended.

Bought a special tool to extract the fuel line

you are just have to spray in the connector with WD40 or something like that and keep trying and turning the tool to different positions to make sure you hit the locks.

the disconnect tool has to be used in a certain way the connector sometimes has a plastic clip usually colored that has to come off then the line has long metal teeth that hold it in place, when the disconnect is around the line you have to push it back into the line then pull the whole thing off, line disconnect and all

I would be more suspicious of the fuel system. Have you changed the filters lately? Do you have a 6.2 or a 6.5?

Wont start

try kicking your fuel tank and if your fuel pump is bad it may "kick start" so to speak your fuel pump, if nothin happens it may be the fuel pump, the lines may not have enough pressure, it may also be your filter just being a lil dirty and needing replaced
