Where is the fuel filter for and how do you change it out? Are there special tools needed? Located in fuel tank? How can one confirm the location of the fuel filter if it is in the tank or not? Not sure if my SUV has the filter in the fuel tank.

It is on the frame rail near the tank. You may or may not need a tool depending on what type of clips hold it in, there are a couple different types. It is about $15.00 at Advance auto if you need it.

I cannot find the fuel filter anywhere on my vehicle, I do not have the money to pay for a mechanic. I am raising my two grand babies by myself due to my daughter passing away. The fuel canister sensor thing has been replaced, MAF sensor replaced and now it will crank but will not turnover. I was told it was the filter or the regulator, but no one can find the filter, it is not on the rail. Please some one tell me or show me where it is located.

Hello,

Sorry about your daughter passing. I will help you get the car fixed. First I am assuming the engine is cranking over but not starting? This cars had two problems that would make them not start. First is the fuel pump in the tank has gone out (BTW your car doesn't have a fuel filter) and second is the crankshaft angle sensor has gone out.

You will need to see if the engine has spark first.

if you don't find spark suspect the cranks angle sensor here is a guide to show you what you are in for when doing the job.

If you don't have spark then lets check for fuel pressure.

If the pump has gone bad you will need to drop the tank to change it. Here are some diagrams below to show you what you are in for.

Here it is on Amazon for 217.00 AC Delco (better)

Please let us know what happens, we are interested to see what it is.

Cheers, Ken

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.
