Default 2000 jeep cherokee plugs

I always have a hard time unplugging those electrical plugs. to be more specific the one on the head, that plugs to injectors.

Well you do have to slide the red tab on each one up.
And being 20 year old brittle plastic and all there is a chance they will snap.
Not to worry.
My experience is that you get a tight fit and they will stay without the locking tab.
I sometimes assume stuff like that is a factory/manufacturing thing.
So things won't separate when the car is going down the line.

Thanks, Ralph77 for your reply, do you know how to disconnect the fuel line on the front of the engine.

First you will need to remove the black "safety" clamp. Just pry it off. What the top arrow is pointing at.

Next you will remove the silver part of the fuel line. What the bottom arrow is pointing at.

You will need something like this:

Thinking one like that will give you the size you need.
Check this out.


Not a Jeep but the same. Start watching at about 1:30

Also there is a shrader valve with a cap on it. Just like a tire valve that you can release the pressure in the fuel line. You can't see it in the picture so I did not mark it.
Do this first. Just for the hell of it take the gas cap off too.

Sorry was hoping the picture would be bigger.

Not really sure what you are saying.
Pretty sure it is the 5/16" one.
Also sometimes crud likes to build up in there.
So you might want to clean it out too.

Ralph, I couldn't get the 1/2" on, my set doesn't include 5/16" release tool, where do I acquire a 9/16"













Thanks, Ralph my set doesn't include 5/16", I couldn't get a1/2" release tool on. Gear wrench doesn't make it either. Where may I acquire a 5/16" release tool? And thanks for your great input, it very much inspiring and very appreciated.

I don't know why that keeps happening. It is there when I copy and paste the link.
Anyway this is the exact one I own.

Ralph I thanks for all your help, but I have one request, to remove the in & out headers, how do you see the bolts and or nuts that hold them. I removed the abs pump and thinking about removing the steering shaft. Do you have a better procedure? please. This web site is great to help me, Thanks a lot Jim

I don't understand your question.
In and out headers?
