I don't quite get what you mean, but no there are no special tools required, are you asking about the pcv line or the evap line? if you can send a picture I can let you know.

How can I send a picture?
Customer: replied 1 year ago.
Which ever line is on back left hand side of the manifold. I think the evap line is quick connects on the right hand side of the engine so maybe it is the pcv
Customer: replied 1 year ago.
Never mind... I got it off. The clip on it was just being real stubborn. How do I go about terminating this ?
