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.

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.

That fuel filter is in the fuel tank, attached to the fuel pump. Not a very difficult job. Remove the rear seat cushion, then remove the access panel to the pump. Remove the gas cap to relieve any pressure. Remove the ground wire and fuel lines, then remove the filter.
1st start by listening for vacuum leaks in hoses and your air intake manifold. 2nd run some Lucas Oil gas treament through your gas system to clean fuel injectors, revive seals, and etc. If that does not work, try replacing your fuel filter(The fuel filter is located under the rear seat in a compartment above the fuel tank. Also, a filter sock at the base of the fuel pump located in the fuel tank) as well as your fuel pump which is right there with your fuel filter. Hope this gets you at least started on the right path.

(2) Remove the front seats.(3) Remove the front scuff plates.(4) Remove the rear scuff plates.(5) Remove the lower console cover.(6) Loosen the park brake lever bolts.(7) Partially peel back the carpeting until the service hole covering appears. (8) Remove the following in this order. (1) Service hole cover (2) Electrical connector (3) Disconnect plastic fuel lines (4) Remove fuel pump bolts. Reverse procedures to reinstall the pump.
The filter is located at the rear seat, you have to remove it first, then you will see a cap attach with some screws. Inside that cap you`ll find the fuel filter. Before you change the fuel filter you have to release the fuel pressure first. To do that, first find the FUEL PUMP RELAY in the main fuse box located in the engine. Once you located open the fuel door and take off the cap and leave it open. Start the engine, take off the FUEL PUMP RELAY and leave the engine stop itself, when this occurs turn off the key, the you can take off the filter and changed it
The fuel filter is located under the rear seat in a compartment above the fuel tank. Also, a filter sock at the base of the fuel pump located in the fuel tank.
On 2001 models the fuel filter is part of the fuel pump. To replace the fuel filter, disconnect the negative battery cable, remove the back seat and take fuel pump cover off to get to the fuel pump.Then you have to 1) disconnect the electrical connector from fuel pump/fuel sending unit, 2) disconnect the high pressure hose and the fuel return hose from the fuel pump and 3) remove the fuel pump mounting flange screws. You can then lift the fuel pump and replace the filter. Good luck and hope this helps
