I have a 2001 Ford Explorer Sport, i have bought a new fuel filter and i have the special tool that is needed to take the old fuel filter off. I have taken off the line that leads from the gas tank to the fuel filter, that comes off with no problem at all. But the line that leads to the engine i cant get it off. I have tried and so has my uncle and we cant get it off the fuel filter. I get so mad with it that i just want to rip it off and saw it off and just put some rubber tube and clamp the ends off. But i dont know if the emissions test will pass if i do that. I need some help.
