Hello you fomoco experts,
2 hours ago I asked how to remove a simple gas filter, 41 people read my question,,,,NO ANSWER,,,,,for a simple filter replacement......these people want to buy a CHEVY,,,, So come on, why the hell won't this filter come off?
I removed the clips and dropped the preasure as the Hayne instructed me.... there is little play or slack. Is there a trick?
Waiting for an answer,,,,before I cut it off with a hack-saw....
I HAVE FORD BOOTS,,,,
NO,,,,the book didn't say anything about a tool,,,,I did see the tool that releases the fuel rail......but that didn't look like that was the right tool for the filter...
Thanks for your come back...it's really embarassing, not to be able to get a filter off....
Off to auto zone...
Thanks for you guy's attention.
I'm back for auto zone,,,tried the tool...it still won't come loose......I got the sizzor type as recommended,,,but,,,we clamp the tool around the line,,and it won't release the guttle spring....I guess I'll figure it out.....thanks again,,,we live WAY OUT in the country and I don't have anybody to consult....glad I found this site.....All these dang things are different.....MAY THE FORCE BE WITH US....

had a similar problem on a mazda/ford truck-the clutch line-we used a small piece of sheet metal to make our own tool cause we had too little space for the bought tools-they have little finger spring clips all around the inside of the line-just push it in the space between the filter and the line-should pop off with a little effort-may need to spray it with a little wd-40 or something along those lines to clean and free up any debris-road dirt or mud
being a lube-tech at ford i've done plenty. the trick is to get an open end wrench roughly the same size as the quick disconnect. put the quick disconnect tool onto the fuel line and use the open end of the wrech to pry the fuel line loose. at the same time push the fuel line towards the filter and it should pop right off.
