Re: I have to replace the fuel filter.
The filter is usually underneath the car.Mine is about a 3inch-4 inch diameter cylindrical shape.Obviously the filter is between the gas tank and the engine.As for replacement,try to determine which side of the car to lift up for easier access.It may be off center to one side.If the bolts are rusty,WD-40 them and let them sit a minute or 2.It is best to hydraulic lift the 1 side and reinforce.You should not use the car tire lift.Gas should not come pouring out either.Just a little from the filter.Good luck!

If you have a gas engine in your Dodge, then the fuel filter is located inside the fuel tank and is a part of the fuel pump module. In theory it is a lifetime filter but should it need replacement the fuel tank would need to be lowered/removed and the pump module replaced. I don't believe you can buy the filter seperately but think it is a part of the fuel pump module. Hope this helps!
There MAY be a way to access it from under the rear seat or under the floor of the drunk. Remove carpet and rear seat to find out.
Otherwise, you'll have to drop the tank out in order to get to the filter. Before you continue with this, have you tried disconnecting the fuel line from the engine and turned the key on? The electric fuel pump (also in the fuel tank) only works when the key is in the 'on' position. You may have a fuel pump issue, not a clogged filter.
Also, there are probably two fuel lines going to the engine. One is going to the engine, the other is a return line going back to the fuel tank. Make sure you take off the right fuel line. If you remove the return line, you won't get any pressure anyway.
You need to determine if it is a fuel problem or a spark problem.When it quits,pull out the easiest spark to get to and hold it against a good ground with a pair of insulated pliers and have someone turn over the engine while you watch for spark.If you have no spark you may need coil,pick-up coil inside the distributor,of an ignition module.Pick-up coil seems to go the most often you may want to start there.If you had spark then try a new fuel filter or you may have a fuel line that is collapsing and needs replacement.
The cheapest and easiest way to do it is check or REPLACE your fuel filter first. Next, if there's a way to safely check the fuel line before it gets to the engine, do it. Then you'll know wether it's the fuel pump. Good Luck
I believe that the fuel filter for this model is located under the van on the driver's side, inside of the frame rail, just below the driver's door. The filter is connected to the fuel lines by either threaded in lines or clips. When you go to your parts dealer, get a good look at the filter so that not only will you know what your looking for to replace, but also to know what tools maybe needed to do the job. The parts guy can get you the right tools. Nothing like a good excuse to buy more tools! If this repair doesn't solve your issue, try getting under the van and have someone turn the key to start while you listen for the buzz of the fuel pump from under the fuel tank. If you don't hear it, make sure the van can't move and tap on the center, bottom of the fuel tank with a rubber mallet while they crank the engine over. If it starts, you probably need a fuel pump. A bad fuel filter and/or a bad fuel pump will not turn on your check engine light. Good luck!
You could have a dirty Fuel Filter, try changing that first since it's the easiest and cheapest to do. You'll find the filter i believe on the inside if the frame under the drivers area. The only other thing i can think of is a fuel Pump going bad and not producing enough fuel pressure.
Best thing, start with the fuel filter and get the truck scanned for any DTC codes.
Good luck and hope this helps.
the easiest way to do this would be to remove the fuel filter and turn the key on the fuel pump will pump it all out for you. you may have to cycle the key a few times as it will only run for a little while at a time usually about 30 seconds per cycle
