Inline Filter To locate the inline filter, follow the fuel line back from the carburetor or throttle body. Inline filters are often mounted to the frame rail underneath the vehicle. It may be necessary to raise and safely support the vehicle using jackstands in order to access the filter.

  1. Disconnect the negative battery cable to prevent fuel spillage if the ignition is accidentally turned ON.
  2. Using a backup wrench to prevent overtorquing the lines or fittings, loosen and disconnect the fuel lines from the filter. Be sure to position a rag in order to catch any remaining fuel which may escape when the fittings are loosened.
  3. Loosen the retaining bolt, then remove the retaining bracket and/or fuel filter from the vehicle.
To install:
  1. Position the filter and retaining bracket with the directional arrow facing away from the fuel tank, towards to carburetor or throttle body.
The filter has an arrow (fuel flow direction) on the side of the case, be sure to install it correctly in the system, the with arrow facing away from the fuel tank.
  1. Install and tighten the filter/bracket retainer.
  2. Connect the fuel lines to the filter and tighten using a backup wrench to prevent damage.
  3. Connect the negative battery cable, then start the engine and check for leaks.

    The fuel filter on these cars are under the hood under the air filter pan. remove air filter pan, and its in front of the carb! They are a pain in the a$$ to break free. I've owned several of these cars, and on half Ive been unable to change!

SOURCE: how do i replace the oil pump on an 87 monte carlo

If you need to ask, likely you would benefit from the instructions found in either haynes or chilton manuals...Depending upon which engine you have , instructions vary...all v8 engines have the pump located inside the pan. Some other GM engines have it inside the timing case cover. Instructions are not difficult but far too long to write here.
One important note...Unless the oil pump pickup is obstructed with hard carbon etc, Your problem is very likely the rod or main bearings, not the pump, though if the bearings are worn you should change the pump as well.

The fuel filter is located in the pressure line that runs from the fuel tank to the engine, near to the fuel tank.
Keep the engine off for few hours before replacing the filter, to get rid of some pressure in the lines.
