fuel rail removal

Greetings,

On a '01 5.4L, do I need a special tool to seperate the rail and injectors? I did not want to force it.

Thanks,
Ken

Welcome to the forum

No, the o-rings are all that holds them together. With some wiggling and twisting, they will come apart.
Go to AutoZone or your favorite parts house and get a set of new o-rings if you are reusing the injectors. They are cheap and will keep them from leaking.

Thanks! I have a Timesert tool kit and new boots for the COPs on order.

The # 7 plug blew out. What's the consensus? Just Timesert one or all eight?

My motto is if it ain't broke, don't fix it. Save the rest until you need them, but that's just the way that I am.

alos be sure when removing the injectors, thats if you are, be very careful when pulling then outta the intake. Try twist them back and forth and not really wiggle them to much beacue you may crack the bottom injector, like the nozzle. I did that on my 5.0, not to pretty....

Thanks to all. Received Time-Sert kit#5553 Monday afternoon. I had the truck running just before nightfall! It's a little scary but I took my time and checked/cleaned the cutting tools often. Jimmy, I'm with you (IIAB,DFI). My go/no go plan was; if the spark plug will hold 13ft-lbs of torque I would leave it be.
The Time-sert kit is top notch quality. I will be putting it on eBay soon.
I replaced the O-rings on the injectors, thanks again.
Next, it looks like there are some ball joints in my near future.
Thanks for the help, Ken

I still can't believe I have only owned this truck two weeks and already I'm putting in a Time-Sert.
