Question about 1997 Dodge Ram 1500 Club Cab
My father called me this evening form missouri( I am in ohio ) wanting to know where the fuel filter is located on his pick-up, a 1997 dodge 1500. I have no idea. I assume that it is on the frame like most later model trucks but i do not know for sure. he said that the truck runs rough at highway speeds and then dies, acting like it is starved for fuel. his first thought was water or debris in the filter. my thought was possible dirty injectors. any help would be greatly apprieciated. Thanks, Brian.
Fuel filter is located back drivers side rear of the tank.sounds if the tank has dirt in it. could be the filter though.it has a internal one too

The fuel filter is part of the fuel pump which is located in the gas tank. Unfortunately, Dodgemade this booboo of builing the filter into the pump. Depending on when the pump was changed, if ever, it's a very good possiblility it does need to be replaced now. I replaced mine just a month ago, and now again having similiar problems. I am about to try relacing the Automatic Shutdown Relay to see if that might be shorting out and shutting down the pump. There is also the possibility that the wiring harness is worn out and shorting out if the truck is stalling.
