That's the way fuel lines are. There is a tool that slides into the fitting to release it. That's the way it sounds anyway. Every shop should have fuel line tools, they are cheap. Pic up a set and see if that is the ticket

Yes, you have to use the fuel line removale tool. All auto parts stores should carry them. Just a couple bucks.

I know how you feel with the sap. When my jeep was still my moms, she parked in the driveway under a tree and always got sap on it...I got a few spots on the top of the roof that have sap pretty thick. I'm not worried about mine though since I can't see it Nice looking jeep though!

Cleaned my interior out.

Had about 30 pounds of sand on the floor from the last time I flooded it.

Also started prepping the other motor for install.
Still have to do a tune up, and valve cover gasket.

Whatever you do, make sure you do the plenum fix with it out. I'm sure you're tracking that already though...

I had to mess with that stupid EGR, and I was cursing Chrysler the whole time!

What's with the lever on the shifter. Is there very many manual zjs?

It's the throttle so you don't have to fumble around with the gas, brake, and clutch with your feet when your off road.

Now that I've got my Jeep back, did a little work.

Checked all the fluids, new air filter, polished the headlights.

Seafoam in the gas and through the TB. Neighbors took their dogs in the house while I was doing it!!

Threw a CEL right away after the Seafoam, took it for a drive, still does 100 MPH! Discoed the batt to clear the CEL and all is well.

While I had the CEL I tried the key trick to see what code it had. Nothing came up, and I'm not sure why, it should do something....

Next weekend some more new parts.

So I did my rear main seal and oil pan gasket. Well looks like my $500 215k mile ZJ needs an engine.... finish the job and it's knocking. The previous owner was notorious about not changing the oil or fixing the leaks so it was almost always 2000-4000 miles over due on oil changes and 1-3 quarts low.
