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.

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 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.
