Fuel filter problems

Well if your fuel filter is bad the car will be sluggish and once you locate the filter disconnect the battery and remove the filter and blow into it from the side that faces the gas tank and the fuel inside should blow out and be sooted with a color distortion either gold or black fuel should come out also be sure you have a clean tank as well as fresh gas in it so you don't burn bad gas off in the motor or if you still have old gas in the car run it out and buy some sea foam and run it till it's empty and add new gas in it and put premium gas back in the car with more sea foam and do the refill after you change the filter and reconnect the battery

92 VW Jetta ran great one day and wouldn't start again. Daughter ran it out of gas, changed the plugs, put gas and gas line anti freeze still nothing. thinking fuel filter, are there 2 filters? and where...

First, you should Make sure that is the problem. Usually if your filter is clogged enough to kill the car, if you wait 10 to 15 minutes the car will restart. The fuel will eventually seep thru the filter. You more likely have a relay or fuel pump problem if it is fuel. Try removing the air filter and spraying carb cleaner into the intake, if it is a fuel problem, it will start. If it is a spark problem it will not. Most vehicles have a filter inline about half-way between the tank and the engine underneath the car. If you jack the car, trace the 2 lines from the fuel tank tds. the engine. There will probably be a cover to protect the filter.

Change the fuel filter now, and put some dry gas in the tank, its got up to the injectors, it will run bad until the water is gone. The dry gas should help in short order.
