Hello, car-person:
There are no dummies on this forum. We encounter folks that need advice and folks that don't know a lot about their vehicles. We encounter a lot of folks but we do not encounter dummies.

I have a stock answer to your question about the fuel filter. If you are going to change the filter, go to your local parts house and procure it for your vehicle (Make, Model, Engine). Open the hood, and find something that looks like what you bought.

In a lot of cases, the fuel filter is on the frame. So, you start following the fuel lines back from the engine compartment and you will find the fuel filter.

In worst case, drive to the gas station and find the kid with acne that is filling your gas tank. Step out of your vehicle, speak boldly, and say, "Hey, kid! Where is my fuel filter located?"
Most likely, you will get a blank look. This kid is having trouble trying to remember where your gas tank is and has no idea where your filter is located. But, with luck, this person may pass the question to the gas station owner who may have changed a gas filter in his/her lifetime once or twice.

Rule One: find the fuel rail on your fuel injected engine or find the fuel input line to your carb. Follow it backwards to the fuel tank. Somewhere in there, you will find the fuel filter. It changes from car to car.
