Earlier I posted concerning a check engine light that wouldn't go away, even after replacing all related parts: http://www.homesteadingtoday.com/showthread.php?t=67789 . Well, yesterday afternoon, I was working on replacing the fuel filter when I discovered what the problem was. It seems that there was a mouse nest on top of the gas tank of my car. I discovered it when I disconnected the fuel pump to relieve pressure in the system. The wiring pigtail for the fuel tank pressure sensor had been almost completely chewed through by the mice. Once I get my car back together again, I am probably going to stuff the nest with mothballs, just to keep the mice from coming back. Like I said, one mystery solved. Now, however, I have another problem. The fuel filter is held up against the firewall under the hood of the car by a metal bracket. One of the fuel lines came off quite easily. However, the other line will not budge no matter what I do. The filter has a 3/4 inch threaded nut on that end, and the line going into the filter is smooth. No matter what I try, the filter will not turn. Instead, the only think I am able to accomplish is bending either the bracket, the fuel line, or both. I have both the factory service manual and the Chiltons book, and neither one explains how to get that last fuel line off. Has anybody had any experience with removing this type of filter?
