Does it have a fuel filter or just fuel pump? If it doesn't have a fuel filter is it recommended to install a
universal one?

If you can't find an inline filter then the filter is part of the fuel pump in the fuel tank. You can add an inline filter if you'd like.

Vehicle that old should have one. follow the fuel lines along the rail if there is one it should be on the frame rail somewhere. If it didnt come fromt the factory with one then it was designed to run without one, adding one sure wont hurt anything but doesnt seem neccesary most new vehicles just use the strainer on the pump in the tank and do fine.

The filter is located in the tank attached to the bottom of the fuel pump assembly, you will need to drop the fuel tank to gain access to the fuel pump assembly, I believe that the filters are available aftermarket but if you have a lot of miles on the vehicle it would be advisable to replace the pump while you are that far.
