Check at the fuel tank where the fuel pump module-its right beside the pressure regulator.

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

Sing a twisting motion pull fuel filter/pressure regulator from the rubber

grommet on the fuel pump module, ensure it's not pulled more then 3 inches out

or damage to the pressure regulator can occur! Dodge recomends the tank be

removed to service the filter/regulator! It's on top of the gas tank!

Fuel filter is part of the tank unit in these, not really a serviceable item like ones in the past. Would have to drop the fuel tank out to get to it.

I would start with a fuel pressure test and a scan to see if the computer has any codes

See the guides below, they will help you figure this out

Attached below is a couple pictures of the fuel tank unit, so you can see the filter

A combination fuel filter and fuel pressure regulator is pressed into a rubber grommet located on the top of the fuel pump module. A separate frame mounted fuel filter is not used.

YEah, nice place huh? You'll need to drop the tank to get the pump out. The filter/regualtor assy is on top on the module fuel pump module.

The fuel filter is in line on the pressure side of the fuel system. It is near the fuel tank, mounted on the frame, you can follow the larger fuel line back from the engine, or out of the fuel tank to locate it. On every 98 318 injected truck, you must de-pressurixe the system before replacing any component in the system and use care for your eyes. I always recommend disconnecting the negative battery cable for safety. Ok Joe

I thought the fuel filter on those trucks was just a sock, or mesh screen, inside the gas tank around the fuel pump?
