    Your fuel filter is located on top of the Fuel Pump module assembly. The fuel tank must be removed to replace this filter. On your vehicle, due to age and mileage, I would recommend replacing the entire Fuel Pump Module Assembly as the internal filter is likely restricted and the pump motor worn. This will give you piece of mind that all components are new.

    I had a similar condition on my 96 2500 Van - turned out to be corrosion where the fuel pump rested was too long. That caused the unit to 'stick' and suck air.

    Replaced the unit and it's been fine ever since...

    The fuel in the tank cools the pump. If the pump is going bad, it can heat up and stop working when you are low on gas. This happened to me. Drove me crazy.

    "Best answer" is wrong in that the fuel filter on 95 models is on the bottom of the internaly mounted fuel pump.Answer number three is spot on. The problem may well lay with a clogging filter rather than with the pump itself, however this is academic since the filter is not replacable anyway.The pump is indeed cooled by the gas so that when 2/3 or 3/4 of the tank is empty the pump overheats and starts cutting out.The new replacement fuel pumps have been redesigned-worse.The old filter looked like a mini air filter about an inch thick and the diameter of the pump. The new one has a tiny sock over the tube only.It sucks.
