Maker sure no fuel pressure on the system before you take any fuel lines loose. Usually after the vehicle sits over night w/o the key being cycled, not much pressure, but, you still need to be aware. The filter I looked at had threaded fittings on both ends, so use a couple of wrenches, take it loose slowly and try to wiggle line and or old fuel filter, just in case of pressure. Use a catch pan, gas will probably run out of lines, if you think too much gas runs out, plug the lines till you get ready to go back with new filter, just remember to remove plugs.
If you use a drop lite, don't place it where gas can't get on it.

My 98 gmc safari starts but won't stay started unless u keep putting gas into the throtal thing behind the airvent I already changed the fuel filter still doing the same thing help

It might be your fuel pump not getting fuel to throttle body. Disconnect fuel line to throttle housing get someone to turn car over and see if fuel is getting pumped up. If not the pump could be faulty or fuel filter blocked. Also check to see if you car has a fuel cut of reset button it could just need a reset.

My '95 GMC Safari Van runs slow goin up a hill then dies out what's wrong?

This sounds like a plugged fuel filter but could be a bad catalytic converter as well. Replace the fuel filter first, they are cheap and really just maintenance. If the problem is still there after you have changed the filter, you'll probably need a new cat.

Check your spark plugs. That could be one of the reasons. Or are you sure you purchased the proper Fuel pump?
