They may be listed as ac/fuel compression line removal tools. I bought a set of 6 of varying sizes from Pep Boys for around $9.00. They are invaluable as I couldn't figure out the trick with a screw driver either.
I just talked to my local Ford dealer about recommended maintenance at 15,000 miles on a 2006 GT. The books says 20k for the fuel filter, but they recommend replacing every 15k. They want $65.00 parts and labor (!?!?!) Two questions:
- Anyone noticed any problems with the fuel filter? I'm not having any symptoms, but I'm about to take a long trip, and don't want any trouble.
- (Basic question) I understand the fuel filter is somewhere in the under-carriage ... anyone know precisely where? I don't have a hoist or jack stands, and I'm wondering if the old front or back tires on the curb trick will do the job .
