    Thanks. My 1999 Pontiac Grand Prix GT only has two of the three connector types that you covered here (it has three connectors total, but two of them are the same). Your video introduced me to three different types, so now I feel confident that I'll be able to get them disconnected properly without breaking anything. Subscribed!

      Yes sounds like you broke the plastic fitting on line, it can be repaired you need to use a fuel line fitting repair kit to put a new connector on your line there are a few videos on TVclip showing how to do it.

    EXCELLENT job on this video! Rarely do we get to see something so ideally explained and demonstrated with this degree of expertise. Thank you. I was dumb enough to have left my 2000 Chevy Impala for almost two years with the gas still in it, so everything got "gunked up." (Well, the car shop SAID the fuel pump, fuel relay, and fuel filter were all bad, and so had to be replaced at a cost of over $800. But that's how these shops work, if they don't know precisely what the problem is, "no problem!" They just swap it ALL out and of course charge us for the "service." Frankly, I don't see why they can't simply be CLEANED, but they don't and won't do that "of course." That's sad.)
    EDIT
    I forgot to add, why in the HECK does that pump need THREE DIFFERENT hose connections? Weird, ain't it? Did they have three different engineers design one hose connection each without talking to each other? (When I was in the field I repaired what were called "Mainframe computer systems." And in fact, back then, we DID have different eng's designing one product and parts mounts. You could literally have to use a dozen different tools, such as different sized screws, TORX screw bits, Phillips screw bits, wrenches, so on. Taking it apart, while tedious, wasn't too bad. Reassembling it though often was a nightmare; you never knew "what screw went where" kinda thing. We don't do that today because, well, that's just bad mech engineering. (But then now, on consumer laptops, good ol' Apple thought it was a good idea to make it a difficult as possible to even OPEN a laptop. But that's another "story..." Thanks again.

    Excellent instruction. Most people film as if they take it for granted that you're a mechanic and as such you know what they're saying. Flash goes into the useful details that the others don't . Thanks for explaining things in there simplest terms for those of us that require just a bit more information.
