Hello,

This vehicle does not have an inline fuel filter.
The filter is mounted on the fuel pump, located in the fuel tank.

It can be accessed through the service port that is located in the trunk. You will see the access port after removing the carpet.

I have attached diagrams below for your reference.

Please let me know if you have any questions.
Thank you.

Okay. Can I replace the fuel filter or do I need to replace the whole pump?

My car has a stutter when I hit an incline and when I try to give it gas it won't go.

Yes, you can just replace the filter that is mounted on the pump.

Does the shuttering only happen in incline?
How much fuel did you have when this happened?
