My truck ran out of fuel and I cannot get it to start. I have put gas in the gas tank. I cannot locate the fuel filter. The owner manual advises not to push it to start it. Can you advisr me of the location of the fuel filter. Thanks

Might be wrong, but almost positive that it is part of the fuelpump/sending unit assy. It may also set on top of the assy, and be replaceable. IF it is that one, it may be incorporated into the fuel pressure regulator.

The fuel filter is located inside the tank. The filter is also attached to the fuel pressure regulator. It requires the entire pump assembly to be replaced.

Where is the fuel filter located on my truck. The haynes manual says it is on top of my gas tank. But the part we have doesnt look like the part in the manual and we cant find anything that looks like it. Could there be that part up there or do we not have the right part. Thanks guys

It's on top of the fuel pump/sending unit module.

The filter is part of the regulator.

Fuel pump might be in the tank but nobody should be stupid enough to design a FILTER for the tank. Follow the line from the tank, it will be easy to trace.
