help on fuel filter!!!
so i tried replacing my fuel filter. i got rid of the pressure then sprayed some pb blaster to loosen the bolts. i got the bolt on the right side off easy but i stripped the one on the left so i used vise grips. the vise grips got grip but now the side of the fuel filter is bent and i think its leaking a little gas!
i dont know what to do and i need advice quickk

You are not going to lose a alot of fuel just whatever is in the lines. If there is alot you may want it to let it drain and clear the lines to keep fuel from getting in your eyes.

help on fuel filter
Becareful with the vise grips, you can egg shape the fuel line nuts and they wont screw back into the new filter. Also put a rag over the old filter and use a pan under it. It seems like alot of fuel comiong out because of pressure but its really not that much fuel that comes out. See if you can borrow line wrenchs to use on the fuel line nuts.
