Nah bro, It's just that Mexican Winnebago of yours is putting too much strain on your Jeep By the way Purolator and Fram(barf) both have a fuel filter for the WJ.

Not being able acquire a WIX fuel filter when I replaced mine could have been a blessing in disguise..... The Purolator I installed is working with no issues.

Re: Replaced Fuel Filter

Having hell with that little rusty connect. Bought the disconnect tool. Total waste of money, bc it doesn't fit.

I'm no mechanic by any stretch of the imagination, what's the trick to get that connect off? Trying not to be too rough with it, because I don't want to break anything.

Been at it 4 hours now and have only gotten one of the lines disconnected. Yes. I'm that awesome.

Thx for any help. Not really sure what the mechanism is that helps detach that line. Is it just that the little black piece needs to be pushed in far enough to release something in there?

And nice write up, btw. Exactly what I was looking for. I've read through the thread several times today for inspiration. lmao!

It's a hooker dude....for sure. That black collar needs to get pressed up into the line (away from the filter unit). While you push it into the line, push the line and black collar towards the filter, and then away. It took me about an hour of dicking with it to finally get it to release. I did not use the "special" tool. I ended up doing it with a pair of needlenose. One jaw on top, one on the bottom, then apply pressure to the jaws and push them into the collar.

Re: Replaced Fuel Filter

Welcome to the Garage.....

As Tony mentioned, you need to push the collar into the line then pull it off from the filter. See diagram under 14-23 http://www.wjjeeps.com/misc/quick_connect.pdf
Takes a little bit of muscle and patience, maybe up to 6 hours worth... LoL, kidding man...
Try the open end wrench, I think a size 10 fits perfectly.

Oh and about those special tools you bought, you positioned it UNDER the black collar right? Coz they are suppose to spread open those collars to release it from the filter once you slide it under.....

Re: Replaced Fuel Filter

Just did mine. 2 push in clips went well. Removed them from the old filter and put them on the new. The black quick disconnected needed some love. Used a 10mm open ended wrench to push it in. Squeezed the wrench with fingers and thumb on the bracket, that did the trick sans special tool.

GrnBeltWarrior-
Can you explain "squeezed the wrench with fingers and thumb on the bracket" some more?
Not quite sure I understand.

Re: Replaced Fuel Filter

If it hisses while it runs, I'd park it and get under it for a closer look. You might be able to narrow it down further. The fuel filter is easy to get to if you're laying in front of the rear axle and looking up over the tank. You should be able to reach up and grab it pretty easily, especially if you have a set of ramps. The only other thing I can think of back there is gas filler and maybe the charcoal/EVAP canister which is tucked in the corner if I remember correctly.
