sitting here at 9:15PM, store is closed, ford is disabled, tool will not release the fuel filter clip. I will walk down in the morning and get a different tool, and probably an expensive new fuel line segment, from the Ford dealer. Stay away from this tool.

BUY THIS

By Brian

Comments about Autocraft Fuel Line Disconnect Tool:

I changed the fuel filter in my 97 ford f150 in under 2 minutes and that is no joke. It fit and works perfectly. Spray some wd40 on the fittings and work them around if you can't get them off. I tried using the plastic ones for two hours then i bought this and bam new fuel filter installed.

Comments about Autocraft Fuel Line Disconnect Tool:

This tool did the trick on one fuel line, but to access the other I had to bust out the Dremel and grind/clean up one of the ends to make it fit. Part of the problem was Ford's decision to place the fuel filter in a tight spot on certain rigs, but the tolerances of this tool could be better. After a bit of work to the tool it performed fine and really, with the price of the tool I can't complain that I had to touch it up to work in my application. Thanks Advanced! You saved me a hassle yet again!!!

Worked Like a Charm

Comments about Autocraft Fuel Line Disconnect Tool:

Worked like a charm. I had the fuel line off in under 30 seconds with this tool. NOTE: the first picture is the AC523, which DID NOT fit my 2003 Lincoln Aviator. The 3/8 size would not fit for some reason...might have been defective. I traded in for this one, which was cheaper, and it came right off.

One of the photos is wrong.

Comments about Autocraft Fuel Line Disconnect Tool:

One of the pictures is for AC523. The AC523 will work with 4 sizes, this one will only work with 2. Purchase this one if you need the 5/16. Get the other if you need 3/8" or larger. These work fine.

    Comments about Autocraft Fuel Line Disconnect Tool:

    Product worked without a hitch on 2004 Ford Explorer. Trick is to push it in then pull ( fuel line ) forward ( toward tool and filter )and it releases. Can't beat the price!

    Comments about Autocraft Fuel Line Disconnect Tool:

    I work on older classic cars in my spare time.I found myself needing to replace the fuel rail and hose in a '97 Town & Country van. It was easy after I spent an hour trying to figure out how to use the tool. There were no instructions with the tool or the replacement part. After I got it straight it worked OK, but would barely fit in the spot where it needed to be used.

        Comments about Autocraft Fuel Line Disconnect Tool:

        This tool was supposed to release quick-connect fuel line fittings on a Mazda. Clumsy tool that I could not get wedged into both sides of the quick-connect. Eventually, after much manipulation, I released the fittings. But, this inexpensive tool is definitely much more affordable than the specialized $57 one that I would never use enough to justify spending that kind of money.

        I could have disconnected the fuel line without this tool...in fact, I actually did. Waste of [$]...but I guess you get what you pay for!

              This tool is a piece of junk. Spend the extra $$ to buy a better one. The tolerances are terrible. Had to go back to the store and buy another one.
