Question about 1987 Chevrolet R10
I just have to replace my fuel filter and not 100% how to go about it...
Your fuel filter is located on the driver's side, underneath your pickup, just behind the transmission and off to the side. It's a round, silver cylinder approx 3 -4 inches long with a nut on the both ends.
First, release the fuel pressure by using the wrench to Crack the Fuel line and Filter loose. Then you replace it by loosening the front nut from the Fuel line and sliding the fuel line forward; then use a wrench to loosen the nut on the back.
Be prepared for some gas spillage with a container or some old rags. Once it is loosened, Remove the Bracket held on by one bolt to the frame and un clip the other lines along the frame: then remove it from its bracket, replace it, hook it back up (reverse of what you did) and it should be good to go.
Good luck and hope this helps.

Also, make sure you install the new filter EXACTLY as the original came off. Installing a filter backwards is not so good. How I always remembered the right direction (if it wasn't plainly marked on the filter with an arrow) was that the crimped end faces forward. I used to think that was dumb, because it looked more "aerodynamic" with the smoothed end forward facing..... The pointless thoughts of a then lube jockey. Good luck!

Best do a fuel pressure test. Should have chg. fuel filter from the get go. The only other filter is on the end of the fuel pump in tank. Bad gas and dirty gas will plug up fuel filter, hense burn pump up.

If the fuel filter is mounted inside the fuel tank at the pump it does not need replacing and is a permanent filter. All you have to do it follow the fuel lines from the fuel tank to the engine. If the filter is mounted in the fuel line you will find it.
