    I have a '94 Toyota Truck 4wd 5-speed, extended cab. I suspect a clogged fuel filter and have been loking under, in, and around it for TWO days. I can not find the fuel filter!!!!!!!! The fuel lines both go straight into the tank and trace easily into the purge canister and the other goes into a series of lines and into the fuel infection area. WHERE IS IT???

I changed my fuel pump and filter and still i have the same problem it runs for a few secs then dies. now im outta ideas. Is there more than one fuel filter? Changeing the fuel filter was quite easy on the truck put the front up on stands...took the passanger wheel off and was able to reach the filter by undoing one of the breaket bolts(12mm) located just above the starter back alittle further..pulled the filter with lines forward above the brake pads and then used a two 17mm wrenches to undo the bolts on each end. then reassemble. total time about 35 mins

I also seen them inside the tank and just outside the tank on the frame driverside and the fuel filter might be driver side right under the driver side door

Truck will start but engine dies and service engine soon light comes on/truck was idleing fine for 10 minutes then began to hesitate then shut off when first happened

When the engine dies the Check eng light is supposed to come on. You need to do a fault code test on the OBD2 engine control module.

What a great truck I've had two, one I drove around in mexico for 6 months. You need to change the fuel filter. It is located under the truck on the fuel line coming from tank about even with the seat. You need a wrench set. Make sure you have the arrow on the new filter going the proper way, toward the motor. Good luck, thats a tough truck

Rough idle, dies when trying to give it gas

it'll either be your ignition system (spark plugs, distributor cap, etc) or more likely your fuel system (most likely your fuel pump or your fuel filter)
