When disconnecting a fuel line or transmission line, you can't just rely on a flimsy disconnect tool that will break easily before you can get the lines fixed. To save yourself the headache and trouble of going to an auto shop, you need the best disconnect tool. This tool should give you a good grip without stripping apart the fuel or transmission lines. For this review, we picked the Actron fuel line disconnect tool. Here's what we think about the fuel and oil line disconnect tool kit:
What's in it
- Black-colored disconnect tool for 1/4-in. fuel lines
- Red tool for 5/6-in. fuel lines
- Gold disconnect tool for 3/8-in. fuel lines
- Blue-colored tool for the transmission line
- Used on GM, Ford, Chrysler, and other American cars
- We like that the 4-piece disconnect tool set is color-coded. This made it easy for us to pick the right tool for a particular size of the line that we have to work on. There isn't any confusion or mix-up.
- Each disconnect tool provided a firm grip. We tried each one, and it didn't disappoint us.
- The disconnect tool is really easy to use. It has a simple but effective design.
- It's good to know that the colorful disconnect tools are reliable. Although they may look like a toy, they're actually sturdy. We've tried using them on a good number of oil and fuel line fixes in different vehicles, and they're able to handle the job well enough, as long as they're used on right-sized fuel, transmission, or oil lines.
- The tools made disconnecting the fuel or transmission lines easy and safe for a DIYer. With these tools, you won't have to worry about totally running the lines. They're designed to fit well.
- The kit only has 4 tools for differently sized fuel and transmission lines. The disconnect tools can only be used on certain American vehicles and some applications. It would be better if there are additional tools in the kit to accommodate more sizes of the fuel and transmission lines.
When it comes to the design, ease of use, price, and practicality of this disconnect tool set, we can't complain that much. We'll recommend it to DIYers who are looking for reliable tools for safely disconnecting fuel and transmission lines.
