2000 Explorer Quick Disconnect Fuel Line Repair 4.0 SOHC

  • Published on Jan 7, 2018
  • Broke a quick disconnect fuel line on my 2000 Ford Explorer Sport 4x4. Quick video of a fix/repair I did vs buying a molded line.
    Part I replaced with a Doorman QUick Disconnect 800-063 at Oreily Auto and a section of 5/16 (i think) fuel line and hose clamps.

    I put a jack under the tranny to support it while pulling the 460 out of an F250. We got the engine out, but he put too much pressure on the jack handle and it cut thru the flexible blue line at the back of the engine. (Bellhousing pressed it against a body seam and took a bite out of it). I think this kit might save us!

    I've got the same problem with a '99 Explorer. I'm going to replace the fuel line from the gas tank to the filter. [The front connecter on the filter did come off. ]

    If you're gonna use hose and clamps, why bother with the quick connect? Just run the hose to the filter and clamp it.

    Thanks very much. A shop wants to charge me $800 to do the same job. They say they must drop the tank down. On my 1999 Explorer there is an access to the fuel pump under the back seat. They don't know that apparently.

    I am having trouble getting the line loose, I think it may be seized on like the one you had. Watching your video relieved a lot of the frustration I've felt over this damn fuel line. Thanks for posting!

    I screwed up exactly the same due to rust on my steel fuel line. How long will your fix last?

    The only thing "quick" about these cunt whore connectors is how quickly you get pissed off from trying to release the bastards.

    Great video, thanks for posting. I have the exact issue on my 2001 Sport Trac that I discovered when I went to replace the fuel filter.

    Big hell no brother. You cannot use rubber line to repair a supply line. Too much psi. And it will corrode and expand and blow out. Not to mention that will not pass a vehicle inspection.

      tony c No vehicle inspection here. Half the trucks here are driving without a muffler.

    Also - I used high pressure fuel injection hose (180psi) and stainless steel fuel injector band type hose clamps. The fuel injector clamps hold higher pressure than the worm drive clamps and don't have the perforations.

    Thanks for making this video. I have the same issue on my 2001 Explorer Sport. One spring lock coupling was dented so no tool could release it, and the other one came apart in pieces with the same piece frozen on the filter end the same as yours. First I had to drain the fuel, as it kept leaking out making it impossible to work on. I was able to drain the fuel tank by connecting a jumper wire from battery + to terminal 5 on the fuel pump relay socket (50B), and pumped.the fuel into several gas cans. Then I got a jig saw with metal cutting blade and cut both spring lock couplings off just behind the larger end, leaving enough metal on the end of each flexible line to clamp a hose clamp to. I used a Dremel tool to clean up the burrs on the cut off couplings. I used only 2 pieces of 3/8 fuel line, each about 3 inches long. Clamped them directly to the oem style fuel filter with high quality hose clamps and then to the cut off coupling ends with hose clamps. I figured if hose clamps were being used there is really no need for the Dorman fittings. Seems to be working OK.

      wizard1955 Hey am I going to die? I touched touched the fluid that was leaking from my car, and I sniffed it a few times. Now I’m feeling a little light headed. It was probably gas? What should I do?

    I own a big ol Bronco and don't know if I have a setup like that. But I improvise where I need to too. It works !! it's good. Great start for the New Year.
