Re: looking for fuel filter
Your vehicle is not equiped with a fuel filter. It has a fuel strainer mounted to the fuel pump module located in the tank. Unless the strainer is considered a suspect for low fuel pressure while the fuel pump is considered ok, there is no need to replace it.
a 6ya Mechanic can help you resolve that issue over the phone in a minute or two.

I need year--make--model? I'm in the US, so domestic vehicles, ford--chevy-- Chrysler, only ford has an inertia switch, that I'm aware of. Your owners manual should give you the location of inertia switch. Fleet.ford.com should have owners manuals that you can look at, hopefully.
if you have a owners manual look up the fuel pressure regulator. if you are getting fuel past the filter but not up to fuel rail it sounds like you may have a hole in the diaphram inside the fuel pressure regulator. Fuel regulators are generally not cheap but once you locate it on your vehicle (its somewhere right down there before the line hits the fuel rail) try getting one at an auto wrecking yard first. I got one from the local wrecking yard here and it only cost me 5.00 and the time it took for me to remove it myself. That solved my problem with mine. Cheap and inexpensive to give it a shot if it works for you. Good luck.
The Fuel Filter is located...
there are three possible locations for this component
due to variation in production
under hood, passenger side, rear engine area, below
firewall, mounted in fuel line
under vehicle, passenger side, below seating area,
mounted on frame in fuel line
under vehicle, driver side, below rear seating area,
mounted on frame in fuel line.
On a 2001 Audi TT Quattro the fuel filter is located forward of the fuel tank, in the right rear wheel well area. The fuel line clamps are a bit tricky. The change will improve performance. The owners manual does not even list changing the filter. But do it! use a Fram, and it fit perfectly. Good luck.
The fuel filter is located under the vehicle along the frame rail or unibody. It should be located towards the middle, front, of the vehicle usually on the drivers side. It is silver in color 6 inches long and cylindrical, sometimes it can have a black plastic cover which might make it hard to locate, so, you can follow the fuel lines from the fuel tank towards the front of the vehicle to the fuel filter. Now there are some vehicles that have an intank filter which is not servicable, you an check your owners manual it will tell you if yours is serviable or not. A good rule of thumb is to replace the filter every 15,000-30,000 miles. Hope this helps you.
