No, the strainer is in the tank. The filter is on the fuel line, just inside the engine bay.

Yup. The strainer is on the end of the pickup tube in the tank. Just like the oil pump strainer. The filter is under your passenger'* feet. Just inside the frame rail under the car.

The 92 strainer has a problem, and a plugged strainer can make it more obvious over time. The possibility of the pickup tube developing a leak over time can also make the same original problem seem more apparent. Watch it carefully, and if it gets worse, consider replacing the pump/strainer assembly. It'* really not that hard to drop the tank and do this.

You may be suffering from one of these problems, or more likely, a combination of the two.
Will this cause a loss in performance as well? Also, If you replace the strainer, do you have to replace the fuel pump as well?
