Ok, im feeling really stupid, I cant find the fuel filter. Looked inder the car, engine bay, you name it. Where do I access the fuel filter? Bought a new Wix filter for my 98 3.8 and I want to put it on.

Above the rear axle if I remember correctly. Jack up the back end and look up above the axle, 99% sure its there. I remember spilling gas all over my face doing it haha...burned in the eyes though

Its pretty straight forward. Pull the old one off the lines and pop the new one in. Its really simple. Be mindful of the gas

There are small white clips at each end you pop off carefully. The new filter provides new ones.
