Its above the rear axle, slightly towards the front and it looks kinda like a soup can with a hose off each end. My 03 cavalier has a threaded line on the drivers side and a plastic clip holding the hose on the other side. took me about 15 minutes to change it. Needed a couple wrenches and a few rags. Pretty easy though

I have A 2005 Chrysler town and country with A 3.3 v6. where is my fuel filter

It is part of the fuel sending unit at the top of the fuel tank. It is not a separately serviceable part. If you decide you must replace it, you must get the entire fuel pump module. You would need to remove the fuel tank and it takes a specific special tool to remove the nut/retaining ring holding the unit to the tank.

Hope this helps!

Replacing my fuel filter on a 2000 Buick LaSabre Custom..any special tools needed and where is it located

There is no special tools needed, you will probably find the fuel fuel filter beneath the undercarriage of the vehicle, check both sides just below the seating area and if not found there you will have to trace the fuel line from the fuel tank forward intil you locate the fuel filter.

. Insert the tool as far as it will go. Twist and pull gently to release the lock.repeat for the opposite end. Do not force the lock as they damage easily. The new filter will self-lock as you install it on the fuel lines. Listen for the lines to click. Reinstall the safety locks.

Do I need a special tool to change a 2005 Excursion fuel filter?

I changed the fuel filter in my 04 explorer last week. You to need a special tool, it is just a little plastic tool that you slide onto the fuel line to release the clips holding the line onto the filter. If you know what your doing and have easy access to the filter, and most enjoy doing the work then buy the tool and change the filter. By the way the tool ranges from $5 to $20, depending on what the part store has on their shelves.
