You are right - the 97 Jeep with the 6 cyl engine does not have a replaceable fuel filter. There is a screen in the tank before the pump.
You have to drain the tank then drop it to the ground. The pump comes out the top of the tank.

Where is the fuel filter located on a 2004 Chevy Express van

Hello Shawn,

Check your left hand frame rail.

On 2005 gasoline engines the fuel filter is integral with the fuel pump/sender assembly in the fuel tank.

The fuel filter is normally located along the frame rail of the vehicle. On some vehicles however, it may have been relocated to the engine compartment. When in doubt, trace a fuel line from the engine backward or from the tank forward in order to locate the filter.
Some vehicles utilize a spin-on fuel filter located on the frame rail. This filter can be turned counterclockwise after the fuel pressure is relieved.

Location of fuel filter on a '05 Hyundai Sonata 4cyl

Fuel filters are not checked but just replaced.

This must be fuel injected. Trace back from the fuel rail toward the gas tank. You are looking for a small can sized object in the fuel line. Most likely this is about the middle of the drivers door up next to the inside frame rail.

A couple more things to check.

You can loosen the fuel connection on the frame rail and crank the engine, there should be fuel everywhere.

Yes, it's not the filter
No it's a blockage and most likely the fuel pump

Fuel pump is on top of the tank about the middle.

If you have fuel, then check the fuel injection regulator, on the front of the fuel rail for correct operation or just replace, especially if you have some miles on the car.

I've never seen a fuel filter complete plug the fuel system unless car has been especially abused.

You should also be able to hear the fuel pump running by just turning the key on.
