What engine is in it and where exactly does the fuel line keep popping off?

2004 VUE 2.2L
Default Re: Help please!! 03 vue issues

you replaced what fuel filter?!

the fuel filter is in the gas tank with the fuel pump, why would you replace it?

If you are putting regular hose clamps on a hose pushed over a fuel line, it will never hold

You need to flare a bubble in the fuel line, use fuel injection hose, push the hose over the bubbled end of the fuel line, and fuel injection hose clamps. Ask the guy behind the counter at Advance Auto and he will show you the difference.

If you put a generic $5 plastic fuel filter on the Vues 60psi fuel line, when the hose stops popping off, the fuel filter will blow apart.

Are the fuel line clips in place? Good condition?
Same filter as removed?

Can you post pictures of the popping off line?

2003 fuel filter is external.

Hard to flare plastic fuel lines.
