2001 Oldsmobile Silhouette Question: Where is the fuel filter located?

 

Question

Visitor, 3.4L V6, San Francisco, CA, July 20, 2011, 23:51

The van will start and then die. It is running very rough. I might be the fuel filter or the fuel pump. I figure I'll changed the cheaper one first to see if it will fix the problem.

    I doubt it's a clogged fuel filter but for best performance they should be changed every 60K. How many miles are on the van? Is the check engine light on? First, remove a spark plug and then get back to me with the condition. Light brown, normal. Blackened and wet, bad. White, bad.
