OMGoodness! You should absolutely fire your mechanic! Clearly he/she has no clue what they're doing if they can't even answer that simple of a question and they're clearly NOT ASE certified! Any ley person can look in the vehicle's repair manual or even search on line to find out where the fuel pump is on any vehicle! Generally, they are inside the gas tank and the gas tank must be removed/dropped to service or replace it, and replacement is highly recommended if it is malfunctioning!

from what I have been told by an independent Honda mechanic, the fuel filter is located in the gas tank. In order to replace it you would have to remove the back seats and open an access panel in the gas chamber. The mechanic said it is very expensive to do because of the labor that goes in to it.
