The fuel filter is usually located under one of the back doors on the underside of the car. Most vehicles require special tools to remove the fuel lines from the filter. Some cars merely use plastic clips to secure the lines. Make sure the pressure has been relieved from the fuel lines prior to removing the lines from the filter

I have a 2000 Olds Alero that will not start, i have changed the oil, oil filter, spark plugs, wire set, alternator, belt, battery, fuel filter, o2 sensor, crankshaft sensor but my vehicle still will not...

I see you have changed many parts on vehicle, the only other thing that comes to mind is the timing belt. but that depends if its a four or 6 cylinder. some fours have the timing belt as to the chain. and also make sure you are getting spark from coils. but check the belt first. and make sure fuel pump is ok !! have a good day !!

Last week my 2000 olds alero stalled when i came to a stop. Then my anilock brake, service vehical, and trac light came on. Changed fuel filter and fuel pump. It does it again today!!! Please help.

None of those lights having anything to do with stalling or fuel filter or fuel pump.
As for the ABS, etc, this is likely due to the wheel speed sensors not reporting properly. While one or more of them could be bad (wheel hub replacement), these circuits are notorious for poor connections, corrosion, or bad wiring due to age.
The wheels speed sensors can be tested before replacing. Start with getting the ABS codes scanned. This will tell you which sensors are having problems.
Before any of this, you should look at the other engine codes and address the stalling, etc first. Scanning the engine and looking at air flow, fuel trim, etc will guide you to the next step. Have you changed the air filter recently?

it could possible be your fuel pump. If your fuel filter is going bad that want stop it from starting. I have a 2002 alero. I done have both fuel pump and fuel filter go bad. so i have a little experience with them.
