Mine has some sort of... "crush" clamp on the lines. Is there a special tool for removing those clamps? Or do I just rip them up and replace the lines and the old clamps with new fuel injection hose clamps?

The clamps look like this:

Those are single use clamps, IMO. I would just cut them off & use screw type clamps to replace them.

Nice write up! I will be using this in the next couple weeks - once the snow melts a little here in KY and I can get the jeep back in the garage!

Thank you so much Max! This is exactly what beginners like myself need.

There's been a number of tasks like this that I've wanted to do and everytime I search, there is always an excellent Mean Max tutorial waiting for me! You are such an awesome asset to this community, so thank you for that!

If yours hasn't been done and you have a lot of miles on you Jeep. Get it done! Mine made a HUGE difference in the way it starts and the way it runs at part throttle. The few filters I've changed before, it was hard to breath through. I couldn't breath through this one at all!

Also, I just went in and ripped the filter out without removing the gas cap or bleeding the pressure out.

Thanks for the write up.... Just wondering before i do this, Would the fuel filter be the culprit of my issue?

I Always need to crank my jeep for about a min. or 2 before it starts, once it starts it runs fine. I figure It is either the Fuel filter, Fuel Pump, Or Crank pos. Sensor.

Any input?

i'd change the filter and see if it makes a difference. i've read a lot of "what's wrong?" threads on here that all sound like a possible dirty fuel filter. a lot of people don't realize how often it needs to be changed and don't get to it untill it causes problems.

That is awfully close.... I just went out and did exactly what the symptons explain, only differences is my check engine/shift light did not come on after the couple mins. and the buzzing came on about 30 sec. after i turned the key then shut off after buzzing for 10 sec. , then i waited about another min. and cranked it and it started right up.

should i attempt to do what the crash course in brain surgery thread says?
