Mitsubishi Repair Problems? Ask a Mechanic for Answers ASAP
Hi,Are you referring to the internal pump connections or external (like on top of the tank etc)?
Thanks.On a 2000 you should have just a quick connect fitting for the line, an electrical connector for the pump motor and an electrical connector for the pressure sensor.What is the issue you are running into?
There are three different designs that Mitsubishi uses on these fuel lines... none require a special tool, but each comes off slightly differently.There is one style with two fairly obvious looking tabs protruding out the end. With these squeezed together, the line pulls off (leaving the tabs on the pipe).One style has also fairly obvious square buttons on either side. With these squeezed in the line will pull off (nothing is left on the pipe).The last and most difficult will have a different color "tab" across the top. This is a U shaped lock that must be pried upward to release from the pipe, then the hose pulled off.If you are unsure which you have, you can take a photo for me and I can check it out.
I'm trying to locate some photos to help illustrate each type.Attached is the first style I described with the tabs that remain on the line.
Here is the second style with the square buttons
And here is the last style with the U clip to pry out to release (blue in the picture, Mitsubishi ones are usually grey or off-white though).
No problem at all... again if you find it appears different just snap a photo for me to check out, being a 2000 it should be one of the above though.
