I have a Ford Falcon AU with these SHIT fittings I hate them have bought all the so called quick release adapters and its still a shit of a job, going to cut up my sharpie pen cheers mate for the infoI said fucken nice one brother
cool stuff. thank you
If you think an 8 dollar filter is something you'll only change once in a lifetime, then i see why you're to cheap to buy a 4 dollar tool.
That’s cool AND Jeffry Epstein didn’t kill himself!
I WOULD HAVE JUST HAD A TEMPER TANTRUM AND CUT THAT SECTION OUT OF THE LINE OUT OR REPLACED THE ENTIRE LINE AND BE DONE WITH IT. I ABSOLUTELY HATE COMPANIES THAT MAKE THINGS TO FAIL OR PISS OFF THE CONSUMER. MY FORD DON'T WORK THIS YEAR, SO I AM IN THE PROCESS OF RUNNING A NEW RUBBER FUEL LINE FROM THE FRONT TANK TO THE ELECTRIC FUEL PUMP AND BYPASSING ALL THE CRAP FORD PUT IN MY TRUCK.
Roll up soda can works 5 cents. Why was the old filter put back on.
Paid $3 for the multi sized metal version of the QD tool at autozone, cost less than the damn bottom of the barrel filter.
I've followed every step suggested on these sharpie cap tool videos and cannot get my line to release. Taking one more break before diving in again. The line I'm releasing is on the back of the fuel rail right next to the firewall under the hood of my 2007 lifted GMC and it's a bitch getting to it - no room to work like these examples. You all got it good. Pray for me....
Store bought tool has a flange to press on so no pliers required where there usually isnt room for them. Compressed air clean and wd40 helps a lot if gritty or corroded or even clean.
Thanks - will try a squirt of wd40 next. This has been a sonsabitch so far. No way as easy as this dude makes it look.
Tried for 30min with "their" quick disconnect tool no luck. Found this video and literally 2 mins later done. Thank you!
good thing a sharpee is only a dollar at the dollar tree!💵
Get the tool at auto zone much easier..the pen cap didnt work well
ford also uses the "chinese fingers" on their clutch slave and then went to the coil spring on these and also the ac lines , really 4.99 for a cheap set of dies to remove these is too much.now they use a push button connector on their plastic lines , much better then their "L" shaped plastic clips
I love ur vids alot,but this video is a perfect example of why fords are over rated lol
Um, Trip, my 07 GMC Sierra fuel lines have an almost identical connector with the same locking clip at the fuel rail. If you think Ford is the only make that uses that connector you're misinformed.
But how to release the pression...where to go to¨?
How did you release the fuel pressure before starting?
There is a fuel pressure release valve under the hood. Search youtube for THAT video based on your make/model. Wait.......why the hell did you ask that when you're on you Tube already? Baffling, man, baffling.
The "special tool" is like $12 at Napa for a set. A set that fits multiple vehicles you may own over time. A fuel filter is not a once in a lifetime replacement item. I ha e in fact used a sharpie cap in a pinch but dude, just get the tool and do it correctly. It will pay off in the long run!!
I like the clear filters so you can see inside
AWESOME! Done in 1 minute...
Damnit I just paid 16 bucks for that tool
in Australia it costs $25 aud for a fuel filter which is like $18 usd, 8 bucks for a fuel filter i wish
The tool is less expensive than the sharppi
I bought the tool for my ford rangers fuel filter when I was 15 or 16. I got a f150 with a bad pump. Need to use that same tool. 9 years later. Twice in one lifetime baby.
GOT TO GIVE IT TO YOU ,GREAT IDEA
Genuis!!! Thank you
Getting the front end off was easy the back end was stuck and the fuel line and would not come off no matter how hard I pulled. I gave up and paid 85 to have it installed. I was too nervous about breaking something. Any reason why it could be unbearably tight in the back? And what could someone do in that situation?
I never had a tool for removing those. A simple pair of needle nose pliers works fine.Just hold the tips of the pliers on eather side of the connector and push in. GM also had a simular type release on the Trailblazer. I had a Bronco 2 and never had a special tool. I actually ended up buying one and never used it. They are dirt cheap at Harbor Freight.
You call eight dollars expensive my filter on my 1999 cost 21$ good lord you can but the whole tool set for less than 20$
Trump would be proud.... implementing a sharpie....
Pretty pricey?? $8.74 😂😂😂😂
Simple genius guy! I told my wife, "go ahead and leave, I've got everything I need". Then I got to the freeking fuel line. An old dried up sharpie in my tool box and line off five minutes later! Thanks
The little QD tool is only about 2.99 or 4.99 well worth the money given the time to make one.
You are the best thanks. Better explain imposible😀😀😀😀😀😅😅😅
I can't believe this worked really well. Thx for the tip. I finally changed fuel filter with your marker top tip
Been using the band from a number 4 or 6 mini hose clamp for many years. Back when you could buy one for a quarter or less. Just snipped the plain end to length at the ends of a slot, wrapped it around the filter nipple, pushed it into the connector and it came right off. Took a lot less effort than trying to jam that chunk of plastic in there with pliers. Didn't weaken the springs either. Afterthought: why didn't you use the new filter you bought to demonstrate putting it back together?
Omg, just buy the damn tool lol, that was painful to watch unless you are 2k miles from a parts store. Just messin, good idea when you can't find one. Makes it easier when you spray it out with silicone before jamming anything into it, don't want to set your ford on fire.
Did it today on my 2001 f150. Worked perfect , thanks for the video.
So why did you put the old one back on right at the end instead of the new one
A lot of shady car dealers will use the old filter. They just poke a hole through the guts of the filter to have a constant gas flow. Not saying he did but that’s the only reason why you’d use the old filter unless the old filter wasn’t clogged.
Finally, a good video that doesn't take forever to get there and is thorough. Thank you.
And a positive attitude! Haha
RIP Sharpie 😭😭😭 I hope the cap is doing good
My 1999 ranger uses similar on the AC system. Harbor freight has a plastic set of those caps for a few bucks. they come in different sizes. I bet one is for the fuel quick disconnect but good DIY tool.
My hats off to you very, resourceful. From a retired Ford mechanic!
Very genius of you to develop that! But for about ten bucks, without pliers, would've taken about the same time to disconnect, with the proper tool. Cool find though nonetheless! Very impressive!
The tool is only 3$ same price of a 2pack of sharpey he just didn't want to wate for shipping and it's only there bucuse it's faster to build on the assembly line
Thanks so much!!! I used your technique tonight. It saved me a trip to the auto parts store plus the cost of the tool.
I miss your videos! even if you guys don't end up making any more things like this are actually super helpful. thank you for ALL the videos you made! This is going to be super helpful!
oh my gosh there is already a tool LIKE THIS not a guineas idea that already exists.
Thanks man you help me alot.....
Easiest way to get rid of fuel pressure is to pull the pump fuse. Of course ford doesn't label the fuses like other manufacturers but on an explorer I believe it is 4th from the back. Then run your truck until it stalls.
Thank you for your time and experience.
Sir I was given some wird plastic clamps to remove mine. And I couldn't use it or it wasn't even for it . but with your help I did it with no issue. And I came back to this video to thank you. This is the firt time I do it and it took 10 min . thank you.
Such a terrible waste!!! I had the same problem. I knew that there was some sort of gripping device in the fuel line fitting. I tried several methods to get it to release. Completely stonkered. Very frustrated. Lots of imprecations and curses. Used your Sharpie Pen Cap Method. ... Worked like a charm. Here's the waste: Plenty of cap left over to moosh down on the Sharpie pen. Hey.... Have to honor the sacrifice of a brave marker. THANK YOU (both)!!!!!
Great idea!! I'll be using this idea here soon. Thx for the video bud!!
I used a 3/8" insert from a shark bite pipe connector, and split it down the side... worked like a dream
You didn’t try and wow people with your intellectual prowess, just showed folks how to save some money in a pinch. You not only walked us through it, but also maintained that positive attitude you mentioned in the video! Kudos brother!
