Question about 1999 Jeep Cherokee
Do you have to remove the fuel pump to replace the fuel filter on a jeep cherokee?
The combination Fuel Filter/Fuel Pressure Regulator is located on the fuel pump module. The fuel pump module is located on top of fuel tank.
The filter/regulator may be removed without removing fuel pump module although fuel tank must be removed.
Two different procedures may be used to drain fuel tank (lowering tank or using DRB scan tool).
The quickest draining procedure involves lowering the fuel tank.
As an alternative procedure, the electric fuel pump may be activated allowing tank to be drained at fuel rail connection. Refer to DRB scan tool for fuel pump activation procedures. Before disconnecting fuel line at fuel rail, release fuel pressure. Refer to the Fuel System Pressure Release Procedure for procedures. Attach end of special test hose tool number 6541, 6539, 6631 or 6923 at fuel rail disconnection (tool number will depend on model and/or engine application). Position opposite end of this hose tool to an approved gasoline draining station. Activate fuel pump and drain tank until empty.
If electric fuel pump is not operating, tank must be lowered for fuel draining. Refer to following procedures.

Yes, the pump, filter, check valve and regulator are all located on the top of the fuel tank.

By now you probably found it, but, if not, it's on the inside of the chassis rail, about even with the front of the left rear tire. If not there, then it's inside the tank, part of the fuel pump sending unit (I know...dumb)
When changing it new filter is labeled in and out. "out" side goes towards engine If not labeled this way it may have an arrow (points to engine). When disconnecting it, wrap a rag around it to prevent squirting gas in your eyes. Don't have your head directly under it either. Have the new filter ready to install so too much gas doesn't go all over the place.

how are the spark plugs?
would start with those.
the fuel filter is usually located under the hood by the intake manifold and attached to the firewall of the car. the pump is located right by the fuel tank and if you cant see it then its inside the fuel tank. (you will have to lower the fuel tank down to get to the pump.)
