My info shows the filter is located on the rear crossmember, underneath, you need to look.

The filter shows to have a threaded fitting on one end and a quick connect fitting on the other end. I have used needle nose pliers on that type fitting. It's probably best to use the proper tool. I believe the autostores sell them.

Make sure there is no pressure on the system, before you take anything loose.

Under car on pass side in front of gas tank. You can check it by taking off engine side connector and operating fuel pump by turning car to on. Catch the flow in a jar/bottle. If it flows good and clean it's not bad.

My vehicle will start but it is not getting proper fuel. When you start the car it will idle between 1 and 5 seconds before dieing out. The pressure seems erratic in that at times when it starts it will rev like the gas pedal is held down for a second. I have replaced the fuel filter and fuel pump someone has suggested it is the regulator so I would also appreciate someone telling me where that is located.

Should have a vacuum line going to it. Did you try checking fuel pressure?

Hi the fuel pressure regulator. Is if you have a throttlebody it is mounted in the tb. If you have multi port 4 individual injectors it will be on the fuel rail with a vac hose connected.
