Fuel filter location

Six cylinder all wheel drive automatic 97,000 miles.

Where is the fuel filter located on my car listed above (red line)?
the 2004's had it mounted in a bracket on the right side of the fuel tank.
the 2005 unit is nowhere in sight. Is it inside the gas tank? This makes no sense for a serviceable or replaceable item. My dealers response was, "we do not know, we never changed one". Which I find astounding! Help please.

Do you
have the same problem?

Hello,

The fuel filter (1) is located in the primary fuel tank module. The paper filter element traps particles in the fuel that may damage the fuel injection system. The filter housing is made to withstand maximum fuel system pressure, exposure to fuel additives, and changes in temperature.

The fuel filter is inside the tank. It is part of the fuel sending unit. They are usually good for 100,000 miles. If you want the fuel filter changed you have to drop the gas tank and replace the fuel sending unit. (I have never had to change one either)

Here is a guide to show you what you are in for when dropping the tank

Here are some diagrams to show you what is will be like on your car (below)

Please let us know what happens.

Cheers, Ken

Looks like that filter is under the vehicle on the drivers side, just before the rear wheel

Look's like it's in the tank and i looked all the way up to 150,000 miles and it doesn't show it being changed so i wouldn't worry about changing it.I would also return that filter you got.

Your fuel filter is located in your gas tank only. Check your owners manual If and when it should be replaced Iam sorry I dont have acess to that information. Let me know if you have anymore questions.

I just bought a fuel filter for my 4 cyl vue and I am having a difficulty finding where it is located. Help! I feel like I need to do this so I can keep it in shape to last me forever! My biggest fear is that it is on the top of the fuel tank and I dont really want to pay anyone to replace my fuel filter
