Default tune up question

I got a 3 day weekend and I am planning on working on my bonne for a while and I am going to replace the plugs, wires, pvc clean the MAF and the throttle body and the IAC and change the oil and the transmission fluid and filter and the question is that I got a fuel filter off a 00 grand am GT that is gone RIP before I had a chance to install it would it fit on the bonne or am I going to need a bigger filter. and is there any thing else that you all could tell me to get or whatever else would help

Best way to find out about the fllter would be to go online and search part numbers for both cars. Same part number and you are all set. Very good chance it is BTW.

Fuel Filter should be under the car in front of the rear driver side wheel. As for depressurizing the fuel system, I usually just put a few rags around the filter and wear some glasses

That'* the recommend way, although it'* never worked for me. I relieve the pressure at the fuel rail pressure test port, having rags ready to clean the mess and lessen the spray. You'll still have gas to deal with at the filter so you'll smell like gas for a while.
