Most definitely! Replace the fuel filter every 36,000 miles at a minimum. A dirty fuel filter will also cause your fuel pump to fail prematurely. It causes the fuel pump to work harder than normal to move the fuel to the engine.

i have a 1997 1.6 8v punto. this is where it is on mine...... if you jack the car up and look close to the front, you should see the filter slightly to the drivers side on a angle.. It rides quite low down so jacking the car up would be the best option. i know its not v. informative but i cant think how else 2 explain it.
