Where is the fuel filter on a 1998 Chevy Venture Van and how do you change it?

For most GM vehicles (that includes Chev) the fuel filters are behind the driver, under the vehicle. Use two wrenches to remove the fuel line fitting from the filter. Be careful since the fuel will leak all over you, so catch it in a pan and be prepared to work fast to minimize spilling. Have everything ready, especially the filter. Don't smoke and don't allow any electrical devices near the spilled fuel. Keep electric lights away since a broken bulb will ignite the fuel and you'll loose your vehicle, possibly your home and maybe your life.
