Look under car follow fuel line you will find the filter.. buy one first so you know what you are looking for. its to replace once you find it. The "strainer" is an item that keeps gtrash from getting into the electric fuel pump.. you do not usually replace the strainer unless you replace the pump it requires removing the gas tank.

Why does my buick regal miss constantly especially up hill?

Without knowing the year of the vehicle, I must assume that it is an older, high-mileage vehicle. Things to check:
  1. Tune-up (if the vehicle has not had one in the last 5 years or 25,000 miles);
  2. Check air filter;
  3. Replace fuel filter;
  4. Fuel may be contaminated. Replace all fuel in vehicle;
  5. If the problem persists, check for clogged fuel pickup strainer, proper operation of the fuel pump, and proper operation of the fuel pressure regulator.
  6. Avoid fuels with high ethanol content, and use a fuel system water remover additive when you must use ethanol fuel blends.

How do you replace fuel line on 1996 buick regal 3.8

I am assuming you are referring to the fuel line that runs from the fuel filter back and goes over the fuel tank. If that is the case. 1. remove fuel pump relay, then crank car and allow car to run until it dies (this will purge the fuel from the fuel line, not necessarily required but a good idea). 2. use 2 wrenches to remove line from fuel filter. 3. trace line back over fuel tank until you get to the clip that attaches fuel line to fuel pump. clip is simple to remove just like the one on the outlet side of fuel filter. if looking for the replacement part. hit the junk yards I paid $15 at a you pull a part place verses 85+ through a dealer (this part is not carried by the auto parts places here in GA)

Where is the fuel filter?

Your vehicle is not equiped with a fuel filter. The fuel pump is a module assembly with a strainer on the intake line and this assembly is located in the fuel tank. Unless you believe the strainer is clogged, and is the direct cause for a fuel system problem, don't bother with it. Most cars from 1996 and up do not have fuel filters anymore.
