I have a 89 Pontiac. If it is the same type. The fuel filter should be in a bracket hanging underneath the gas tank near the muffler area. Be very careful removing it because fuel wit come pouring out. Get bucket ready.

I had a 1988 Pontiac Sunbird GT with the 2.0L Turbocharged engine. I replaced the alternator every 26K mi. I believe this was due to the underhood temperatures caused by the turbo. I had the car for 123K mi. before I sold it. Still in great shape. Could be due to a short in the electrical system or a bad ground.

Where is fuel filter on 1988 Pontiac Bonneville?

The fuel filter on the 1988 Pontiac Bonneville that I have is located on the drivers side, tucked just under the body of the car and in front of the rear tire well. There are three lines coming from the tank, and one of them will go to the metal cased fuel filter and connect with a metal hose fitting. It will require two wrenches to remove, one for the fitting, and one as a backup on the fuel filter. The filter is against the body of the vehicle and there is not much space to work within.

Where is the oil sending unit on a 3 8 1995 Pontiac engine?

There is no such thing as a 1995 Pontiac engine. IIRC Pontiac engines were last used in Pontiac cars in 1988, and in GMC trucks in 1992. A 1995 Pontiac may have a Buick 3800 engine with the oil pressure sender screwed into the block just above the oil filter. You might have a Chevy or Oldsmobile engine..... but unless it's a V8 your oil pressure sender should be very near the oil filter.
