Question about 2004 Chevrolet Silverado
Just had to replace 2 clogged injectors, so i am wondering the condition of my fuel filter.
I own a 2004 chevy z71. general motors did not put an external fuel filter on these trucks in 2004. EPA was trying to get them to do things with as few connectons on the fuel system as possible so there wouldn't be as many places to leak!!!! the fuel filter is built into the fuel pump/sender unit. it is all one piece design you cant even see the filter whith the pump removed you have to change the complete pump assy. i recomend using an oem part from you chevy dealer. parts house pumps dont usually last that long. i work at a carquest and we get bad pumps back alot they dont usually last but about 3 months

Under the truck, driver side, along frame rail.It's a round cylinder type thing. If you are going to replace it, loosen the gas cap to release the pressure in the system. There will be some leakage, when you take the fuel lines off, so be careful. When you put the new one on, make sure the arrow on it is pointing toward the front of the truck.

I am willing to bet money that it is either in the tank or right outside. My buddy has an 01 silverado and it is a black box right in front of the tank but they move stuff around year to year. I will tell you that they operate at up to 60psi and they don't come apart so checking their condition is darn near impossible.
