For the 2000, the fuel filter is on the passenger's side towars the rear. Look under the car at the rear jack point. The filter is tucked up just inside the frame member. It's held in place by a hose clamp type strap. The lines are held on by plastic "U" clips - new ones should come with the new filter. All you need is a couple of screwdrivers - one to back off the clamp and a small one to help remove the plastic clips.

Before starting the job, open the under hood fuse box and pull the 15 amp fuse to the fuel pump. Start it up, and let the moter die from fuel starvation. This gets the fule pressure off the line.

The fuel filter is located in the gas tank as part of the fuel pump assembly. So change it whenever you have to replace the fuel pump.
