Question about 1989 Ford Escort
Open the hood and look on the passenger side nearest the strut tower. Usually held on by a plastic clip in each hose (feed and outlet) and one hose clamp holding it into the car. The new filter will come with new clips so don't worry about breaking them.

It is under the hood, on the passenger side, upper firewall, near strut tower, mounted in fuel line.

The fuel filter is located on the drivers side of the firewall underneath the brake master cylinder. It is easiest to get to it from underneath the car.

is it manual tranny? if so u do so under the car by removing the fill up plug which is located on the side of the tranny on driver side of the car if i remember. The plug under the tranny is to drain it.
If u drain it, when u fill it back up, u do so until oil slightly spills out by way of that side plug.

Your fuel tank which should be located somewhere aroung the rear axle should have 2 lines coming off of it from the top and running along side of the drivers side frame. One for fuel is for demand and one for return. Follow those lines and you will come across the fuel filter which is an inline filter
It should look like this pretty much. Example image only.
To install make sure you have a drip pan because obviously fuel left in the lines will come out. You will also need a fuel line disconnect tool which looks like this.
All autozones or checker stores will have this little guy and it's only $6 bucks or so. It will wrap around the fuel line and compress the retainer clips on either side of the fuel filter to be able to remove it.
When installing the new filter pay attention to the arrow posted on the side of the filter this should match the flow of fuel towards the engine.
