There is no longer an external fuel filter. The filter is built into the fuel pump module now.

Where is the fuel filter on 2007 gmc 1500 sierra

It does not have a user-serviceable fuel filter. In 2004 when GM went to what is called a "returnless" fuel system, they incorporated the fuel filter into the in-tank fuel pump. That means from 2004 to present, the only way to replace the fuel filter is to replace the entire fuel pump.

Where is the fuel filter located on 1992 sierra 1500 located

It is located midway along the frame of your truck.

Remove the fuel filter from the bracket on the frame rail. Replace the fuel pipe O-rings if you find any cuts, nicks or distortion in them. Slide the new filter into the bracket. Remove the caps you put on the fuel pipes and connect the threaded fittings back to the filter. Tighten it to 18 ft-lbs.

Where is the fuel filter

You dont mention what model 1500, 2500,3500 ect. or the engine code (8th VIN digit) thats really needed to answer questions with accuracy. but if you cant find it, between the fuel tank and the engine, its in the fuel tank, and you dont need to replace it until you replace the fuel pump at approx 125-150K miles

I'm looking for the fuel filter to replace on 2004 GMC Sierra 3/4 ton 2500HD 6 L truck.

If you have one, it's located under the drivers side of the cab on the inner rail part of the frame.<p>
Now some of these do not have one. Call the dealer. He'll need your VIN number. Some came without a fuel filter.

Fuel filter location Sierra

I have been told by a mechanic that the fuel filter is inside the fuel tank. Have to either drop the tank or remove the pickup bed. Access is on the top of the tank. This is poor engineering.
