The fuel pump is in the gas tank and the fule filter runs along the bottom of the Driver side..if your looking at the gas tank follow the gas lines that go toward Eng. you will see the Fuel filter

The fuel filter mounts to the top of the fuel tank. Be sure you release fuel system pressure before attempting replacement.
The fuel pump is installed in the top of the fuel tank as part of the fuel pump module. The module includes the electric fuel pump, fuel pump reservoir, inlet strainer, fuel pressure regulator, fuel gauge sending unit, fuel supply line connection.

if the engine turns over, but just doesn't start, you need to do some checking, check for spark from the coil, or coil packs, if that checks out ok, have the crank and cam shaft position sensors checked, timing belt, computor. I know it's a pain, but I have worked on cars for 40 years, something like this you have to use process of elimination, without testing, you could replace things you don't need. ( expensive) good luck).

First off, what kind of vehicle do you have? I assume it is one that has an electric fuel pump in the gas tank, so that is what my answer will be geared to.
On the gas tank there are several lines. The most important ones for this conversation are the ones that deliver fuel to the engine and the one that returns the excess fuel back to the tank. They are usually different in size.
The larger one delivers the fuel and the smaller one returns the excess fuel back to the tank. Either one may be the culprit in this scenero.The tank is usually connected by a high pressure flexible fuel line to a stainless fuel line resembeling a brake line. At times this flex line may develope a leak for varrious reasons. It could be something rubbing against the line, it could be the crimped connection went bad and is leaking, etc. If it is your flex line, which it probably is there is a repair kit you can purchase to fix it. I have only been able to find this repair kit at NAPA. I've tried many auto parts stores and they are the only ones that carry it. The use of it is very simple actually. You find the leak in your line, which by the way is harder than it sounds and usually involves removing the gas tank. In which case you will need a special tool to disasemble the gas line from the tank. Once the leak is located you cut the line. You then have to place the remaining flex hose in boiling hot water for at least 10 seconds, which makes it soft and insert a splice fiting into it. When the line cools, it will shrink tight on the connector. You the do the same with the hose that came with the repair kit. Then do the same with the other end and install the fitting which connects to the gas tank. You should now be in business.
BTW. I have to do this very thing tomorrow.
Good Luck! and let me know if this helps you.

Look at the terminals that the pump plugs into, they get corroded, make sure the wire hasnt corroded from the plug by gently tugging at it

SOURCE: Fuel pump/filter?
It sounds like it could be the pump, but if you don't know the history of the filter, just change it. It might sound silly but make sure there is enough gas in the tank, the pumps normaly whine when they pump air e.g. no fuel. If the problem is not solved after changing the fuel filter (15 minute job) then when you have the fuel pump out check that the fuel pickup is attached because the problem may lie there. When you change the fuel filter let the fuel drain from the fuel rail (engine side) just incase there is an obstruction of debris there, this would be rare but I have seen it.
