It's located underneath the car, not in the engine compartment, right next to the fuel pump. It's on the driver's side, right behind the front tire underneath a little panel that unscrews w/ a 1/8mm socket. Make sure you get the right filter. Some have one port (opening) in one port out, others have two. There will be pressure in the system be careful not to get gas in your eyes. As far as testing, if the fuel pressure is correct that's it, U are done.

Why won't my 2001 Alero (2.4) start?


The most likely causes on the Alero are either a clogged fuel filter (which should be replaced every 30,000 miles in order to avoid damage to the fuel pump), or a weak or bad fuel pump. I'd start with replacing the fuel pump since it's the cheapest fix, the part costs about $20 at the Auto Parts Store. Here's a link to the fuel filter location and replacement:

http://wiki.answers.com/Q/Where_is_the_fuel_filter_located_and_how_do_you_replace_it_on_a_2001_Oldsmobile_Alero

The fuel pump replacement is more work and more money. The part costs between $100 and $150 to buy nif your a DIY, or about $650 for parts & labor at a repair shop. The fuel pump is located inside the gas tank, so the gas tank will need to be dropped if the pump is to be replaced.

Looking for fuel filter


Your vehicle is not equiped with a fuel filter. It has a fuel strainer mounted to the fuel pump module located in the tank. Unless the strainer is considered a suspect for low fuel pressure while the fuel pump is considered ok, there is no need to replace it.

Where is the fuel filter located on a 2001 Mazda Protege 2.0 LX?


A 2001 Mazda Protege (actually, all models from 1999-2003 including the DX, LX, ES, Mazdaspeed, and Protege 5) does not have an inline fuel filter. The only fuel filter it has is a "strainer" or a "screen", which looks like a nylon mesh "sock". This strainer is connected to the fuel pump, located in the gas tank. Although this fuel strainer does not require periodic replacement, it is recommended that it be changed if you are replacing the fuel pump.

I , i try to find the fuel filter for my hyundai elantra 2001


The fuel filter is located under the rear seat in a compartment above the fuel tank. Also, a filter sock at the base of the fuel pump located 
in the fuel tank.

On 2001 models the fuel filter is part of the fuel pump. To replace the fuel filter, disconnect the negative battery cable, remove the back seat and take fuel pump cover off to get to the fuel pump.Then you have to 1) disconnect the electrical connector from fuel pump/fuel sending unit, 2) disconnect the high pressure hose and the fuel return hose from the fuel pump and 3) remove the fuel pump mounting flange screws. You can then lift the fuel pump and replace the filter. 

Good luck and hope this helps
