Default I need to find my fuel filter and change it.

Where can I find it in my car? I hope it isn't in gas tank. Plus I am tired of my car shuting off and having a hard time starting up.

Crawl under and look right in front of the right rear tire, alongside the frame. Should be a canister roughly the size of a condensed soup can there.

Are you sure? Its by the oil filter? I hope so because I wanted to go to AutoZone right now and purchase one. Trying to do this on my own.

No, rear tire! Back of car, in front of rear tire. Basically right under the rear passenger side door.

Damn I read too fast. Sorry. Gotcha. I guess now is how much it cost and is it easy to replace.

Oops. Bad info here. It'* located behind the right FRONT tire. Inside the passenger side subframe rail under the car. 10mm wrench and large needlenose pliers are all you need.

Okay, if you're talking about your '93 here, then willwren has the correct info: it'* on the inboard side of the front subframe, behind the passenger'* side front wheel.

But if your problem is that the car is hard to restart after shutdown (i.e. a warm restart requires lots of cranking), maybe your fuel-pressure regulator has sprung a leak. Find it on the end of the fuel rail on the engine, pull its vacuum line and see if gasoline comes out. If so, that'* your culprit.
