The fuel filter is located at the top of the fuel tank. Here are some diagrams of where the filter is located in the tank. (Below)

It is with the pressure regulator.

Please let us know if you need anything else to get the problem fixed.

Cheers, Ken

Hi, not sure which filter your talking about? If strainer that is on the end of fuel pump? You'll have to drop the gas tank and remove fuel pump assembly.

There is a regulator/fuel filter on top of the fuel pump assembly, not in the tank. Don't know if you can reach without dropping the tank?

Location depends on which engine you have. It's next to the fuel pump. Loosen the clamps, slide off the hoses and slide them onto the new filter. It won't solve anything. Except for diesel engines replacing the fuel filter on Chrysler engines is a waste of money. They last the life of the vehicle unless something very unusual happened.

To: Caradiodoc, Thanks, I'm sure you're right about the filter, but thought I would check that first. It turned out to be the pump. I appreciate the help.
