I need help.Its a dump question.How do you get the fuel fliters off the line of a fuel injected 1994 F150.I can get the clips off but the lines seem stuck on the fliter.I did not push to hard becuase I'm not sure how much gas is going to come out.Ok when your all done laughing maybe one of you can help me.

uhmm just keep pushing and pulling til it comes out? it shouldn't be too much gas coming out..but its a good idea to have a rag near by and make sure the engine is cold too....that's just my opinion

Ran into this the first time I replaced the filter on my 92 F150.

The fuel line has little springs up inside it. Takes a special tool that you slide on the line. Side it down the line and slip up inside and push the release springs. You can buy the little tools cheap. I bought a whole set with about 6 sizes for less than $12 from Auto Zone.

Here is single metal http://www.thetoolwarehouse.net/shop/product4785.html

The whole set is useful as you can do a/c lines and tranny coolers. The set I bought is all plastic, but for how often it is used it's fine.

NEVER yank on it to pull it apart. You will destroy the coupling,and then you're SOL. Remember too that a FI system runs on about 15-18 psi,so there will be a spray release if you do it right after it's run. Let the truck have a cool down period before you do this job. It's quite simple actually. And most important: NO SMOKING!!!
