It's just inside the chasis under the vehicle on the driver side just in front of the rear wheel. Its silver and about the size of a small can of beans. It's an in line filter, takes about 1/2 to 1 hour to change with fuel line tools. You dont have to have special tools. A pair of needlenose pliers and a small standard screw driver will do. Park it where you dont mind dumping about a half pint of fuel. have a rag and oil pan to catch the fuel and it be under pressure so becareful taking lose. use the rag to keep the spray from getting on you. then pull the hose towards the pan and if you use a clean pan you can pour the fuel into your mower or back in the tank just not the dirt and rust

I have a 2002 Saturn vue it is a 4 cylinder stick! Does what you stated above to find and change fuel filter apply to my Saturn as well? And how difficult would you say it is to change? I do not have a lift I would be doing it in my driveway! Thank you for any help! Janet
