1998 fuel filter

I feel like a total idiot asking this, but do the 98s have a fuel filter ? Is it external and servicable ?
I can't seem to find mine.

sorry guys

It's at the base of the fuel pump which is inside the tank. It is considered a life of the vehicle filter and doesn't need replacing under normal conditions.

Keep in mind that free advice can frequently be worth less than you pay for it.

GREAT !
Thank you for the quick response !
That took a whole 2 minutes for an answer. I done the complete tune and just didn't want to overlook the fuel filter.

The fuel pump is considered a lifetime unit but the thing at the base of the fuel pump is just a strainer. There is a second one in there too.

The actual fuel filter is a combined fuel filter/pressure regulator. It sits on top of the fuel pump module and is accessible once the tank is dropped, without removing the fuel pump.

If it doesn't work properly, look for the service manual link at the bottom of the page.

If you believe you have a fuel delivery issue, suggest following the test procedures in the FSM....it accounts for both pressure, volume, and leak down rate, IIRC.

I'm not having any issues. I just like to keep up on maintenance instead of waiting for something to go wrong before paying attention to it.
