CHEVY FUEL FILTER CHANGE

2002 Chevrolet Suburban

Engine Performance problem
2002 Chevy Suburban V8 Four Wheel Drive Automatic 110, 00 miles

I think that I got some water in my gas and it's in my fuel filter because the engine runs rough in very cold weather. I would like to know where the fuel filter is on my 2002 Chevy Suburban, and how hard it is to change?
Thank you.

Hi: First, if you got water in the fuel, the engine would buck or not run. A rough idle is most likely caused by a sensor. Is the check engine light on? Have you ever had the computer scanned for trouble codes? Most nationally recognized parts stores will do it for free. I recommend having it done. Let me know what you find.

Regardless, the filter is mounted to the inner side of the frame rail (driver's side).

Let me know if this helps, or if you have any other questions.

Contrary to the popular belief, there was water in the fuel filter, and more than you would think, changed the filter out and the problem is fixed.

Thanks to all.
