Where is the fuel filter located on my car and how do I replace it? Is it inside the fuel pump assembly? This model is the GLS. Does that make a difference? Thank you.

The fuel filter is located under the rear seat in a compartment above the fuel tank. Also, a filter sock at the base of the fuel pump located in the fuel tank.
There you go.

The fuel filter is located underneath the car, near the fuel tank.

The past few weeks the car hiccupped occassionaly when driving at highway speed (55-60mph)but kept going good. I've put new plugs in, tranny and oil good, air filter good, however, after 5 miles (30-35 mph)(slight grade) it almost stalled (no reaction from gas pedal). After another 5 miles on another grade, it stalled out. I waited a couple minutes and restarted. 10 miles later at highway speed (55-60 mph) it bogged down and came to a stall (no grade, level road). I restarted again and made it another 3 miles to work. Is this the fuel filter or electronic/computer gizmos? I don't feel like tearing out the back seat if it is not the filter/pump.

When you say hiccup do you mean cuts out completely for a second? Not bogs/slows down?

Does sorta sound like a fuel problem though. A fuel pressure test could confirm this. And engine sensors also have great influence on fuel delivery even if pressure is right constantly.

When I start the engine, the fuel pump makes a noise like it loosing vacuum/suction. The fuel pump also does the same thing when Ishut the motor off.

That is not your pump. That is your EVAP purge solenoid valve, possibly going bad.
