Fuel filter is usually located on the inside of the frame rail at driver's door, underneath the car!

I am trying to find out if it is possible that the 2004 ford explorer has 2 fuel filters one by gas tank on passenger side, and 1 on drivers side.

Just have one fuel filter. On the 2004 ford explorer the fuel filter is located under the vehicle on the passenger side near the front of the gas tank, just behind the catalystic converter.

There is a metal heat shield that must be removed before you can access the filter. After removing the heat shield there is a plastic protectant shield that must be removed, then you can get to the fuel filter.
Hope helps (remember to rate and comment this answer).

Black fuel coming out of fuel filter

it is dirt trapped by the filter and yes it is normal, work for a Ford dealer see this all the time, would suggest you change gas stations or bring it to there attention that thier fuel is dirty. Make sure you change the filter at least every 30,000 miles, use a Motorcraft factory filter, they are by far the longest lasting and best at filtering.
