Changing filters is on of the easiest at home jobs you can do.
Just locate the the fuel filter housing, take a look and figure it out.
Its as easy as putting air in your tire if you find were its located.
Get The complete tear down and rebuild book for the 98 sonoma @ any parts store and look it up.

It is located under the truck on the driver side inside the frame rail remove the 12 M bolt to get the holding clamp off next get two plastic baggies and two rubber bands and a catch pan. Do this where there is no items that could cause a spark or a gas water heater is at that could ignite the gas. Now pull the U clamps out of each end of the filter, if you brake them it is ok the new filter will come with new clips there are two type of fuel filters some may have 2 lines others have only one but you can't get them wrong. Pull out the plastic pieces and put baggie on the fuel line and put rubber band on to keep it from leaking gas do this to all lines. next install the lines one at a time and reinstall the clips. Be sure to slide out the old filter from the housing then reinstall back on the frame and tighten the bolt down. Next Get in truck and turn the key to the Run position (Not start) then off do this 10 times this will prime the pump and fuel lines then try starting it, once it fires up it may run rough for a minute but should smooth right out. hope this helps.

The v6 engines had a problem with the throttle body gasket leaking air. Could be the same problem on your engine. It wouldn;t happen until the vehicle had been driven for a while, then the gasket would become fuel soaked and would be sucked in at the back corner of the gasket. Replace the throttle body gasket and see if the problem goes away.
