Where is the fuel filter located and how do i change it on a 1997 gmc siera 3500 diesel

Not real familiar with this model of truck...but I'd find your injector lines that take you to the fuel pump. (fuel pump should be driven by a belt)
Then from the fuel pump, I'd follow the fuel line on back to the fuel filter.
Should be a rather large cannister mounted near the firewall.

Hope this is helpful...

I have a 1997 GMC Sierra. The engine is a 5.7 vortex. Is there a fuel filter in the carburator?

This year does not have a carburator,it is fuel injected.The filter is on the inner frame rail on the left side.Make sure and relieve the fuel pressure before removing the filter or it will spray fuel all over.You can do this by removing the fuel pump fuse or relay and start the vehicle and let it run tilit dies.Then turn off the key and replace the filter.You will still get some fuel coming out but it won`t be pressurized.Hope this helps.Good luck.

Where is the fuel filter on a 1997 gmc sierra w/ 5.7 l engine? Thanks

The fuel filter is located along the frame rail on the drivers side.
Look under the truck about were the drivers seat is located, and you will see it mounted in a bracket. For safety, remove negative battery terminal before replacing.
Good luck...i hope this helps, please rate me a fixya.

97 gmc jimmy loseing fuel power

The first thing I would recommend is that you change your fuel filter and recheck your fuel pressure once you do that. If is persists I would check your fuel pressure regulator as well. A fuel pressure regulator for a 1997 GMC K2500 ran about $45.00 and a fuel filter runs about $7-10.00. That's a lot cheaper to go that route first than to have to spend $350.00 for a new (Lifetime Warrenty) fuel pump that comes with a new sock and sending unit.

Is there an inline fuel filter in a 1997 gmc 2500 sierra truck wi

On the drivers side frame rail (inside) is your fuel filter. Cheap to replace. But if you don't hear the pump cycling prior to attempting start it is more than likely pump in the tank. Check fuses first though. Big job
