Engine Mechanical problem
1997 Ford Ranger 4 cyl Two Wheel Drive Manual 93000 miles

I am trying to replace the fuel filter. The hose from the gas tank I disconnected with no trouble. The line going to the engine is metal fitting and I can not see how to disconnect it.

I tried to upload a picture but couldn`t get it to work -- hit the uplaod button and nothing happens

The fitting to the engine didn t appear to split like the one in your picture but I finaslly found out what the little plastic tool was for. Put it aroung the shaft of the filter and push it into the body on the gas line steel fitting therefore releasing the holding spring inside,
Thanks for your help
