The fuel filter needs to be located. You can find the filter by crawling under the vehicleunder the rear driver’s side. The filter is located by the fuel tank running alongside the frame rail. Before you remove the filter you will want to do a visual inspection in that general area to spot any leaks or loose hose connections.
