How do you get the piston to go back in on your caliper on your 1988 buick regal custom?

I have found using a C clamp is quite helpful. You can slowly increase the pressure until it is retracted. Watch the fluid in the master cylinder as it will likely overflow. Or open the cylinder valve and let it flow out. If you do that, put a tube on it and catch the fluid so it does not run over the parts.

Where is the fuel filter located on a 1988 Buick Regal Custom?

It is located in front of the drivers side back tire in about a foot. It is cylyndrical and will take a lot of time if it hasn't been changed in a while. I would recommend using a lithium grease or rust remover if that's the case. I believe that one is located under the trunk area near the gas tank.
