Question about 2001 Hyundai Elantra
I looked around and removed the rear seat, opened the cover and removed the fuel pump and took it completely apart. I did not find a fuel filter inside, so I reassembled everything. Now I have a replacement OEM fuel filter and don't know where it fits........
I have changed these before, but never on a hyundai, so if someone could help, would appreciate it.
I have a 2003 hyundai elantra that will not excellerate immediatly, it hesitate to move forward, only moving very slow. it will not go up hills, even a 3 degree slant, it will back up fine, please help.

Fuel filters on my '01 Elantras have always been in the tank as part of the fuel pump/sending unit assembly. The typical can-type fuel filters sold by local parts stores are nowhere to be found. When purchasing one from a dealer, however, they have been large plastic filters that basically wrap around the fuel pump. Changing them isn't difficult, but there is a little o-ring in the old filter that must be removed from it's rather difficult to access connection point where the pump connects to the filter in order for the vehicle to start after replacement. I'm almost embarrassed about the amount of time it took me to figure that out.
