Question 1995 Lumina 3.1 Liter..Radiator Drain-Plug/ Fuel Filter?

I tried to get the old radiator drain plug off, but broke it while doing so. I cant get it to unscrew out to drain, half of the wing peice to grip it is broken off, and im afraid that Ill make it worse. Once I do get it loose, does this drain-plug unscrew all the way out? Or is it permantly in there? Heres a pic...

And how do I get this line off the fuel filter...the side going to the engine, or 'out' I can just simply use that line made wrench, but how do I disconnect this plastic hose connector going to the fuel-tank w/ out breaking it?.....

You can replace the radiator drain plug, so just take that sucker out with a pair of vice grips.


There should be a retaining clip that you pull up to disconnect the line from the tank/filter. These are easily replaced as well.

Maybe this link can help some:

The picture you have of the fuel fitting looks like a typical AN type fitting that should come off with a normal wrench, but some take special tools available at auto stores.
