It is in the fuel tank and is part of the fuel pump assembly, according to the maintenance schedule it does not need to be replaced.

Back by the tank but I highly doubt that is the issue. I would check the fuel pressure checked first.

Look for vacuum leaks and check the idle control motor for sticking.

The jeeps moved them either into the tank or on top of it and have combined them with the fuel pressure regulator.

Post back if you still want to go after it.

I know where the fuel filter is located. It has three ports
two ports has a quick release and the other one I believe is the fuel pressure side. How do I remove this line from the fuel filter

You may want to post a pic of it. I don't know off hand what style it is exactly. All of them have tabs that have to be released to get them over the llip on the nipple.
