Since it's a Trans Am I'm assuming that you have the carbureted 5.0L V8. It's in the carburetor where the fuel line screws onto the carburetor. You'll have to remove the fuel line at the carburetor then remove the large nut that the fuel line screws into. The fuel filter will then pop right out. HTH. -Jim

No it's not carbureted it's fuel injected, and I did find the filter it's on the left side in front of the rear wheel, I changed it but it still misses. Bob
