It is located by the rear axel. Easiest to see if you jack up the back end.

AnswerIt's behind the tank tucked up close to the body. You'll have to get the rear of the car up in the air a ways to work on it. One side has a flared fitting but the other has a slip in plastic retainer. The retainer can be a pain to remove. You'll need a 3/4" and a 5/8" short open end wrench for the flare connection.

The fuel filter on a 2002 Pontiac Sunfire is in the rear between the fuel tank and the rear axle. By the way its under the car and easy to change takes about 10 minutes.

I know that on a '96 the fuel filter is an in-line type near the fuel tank. As Pontiac hasn't really altered much on the Sunfire in over ten years, I'd suggest starting there.
