Repair costs estimate?

The car was chilly on the trip south from Idaho in zero degree weather. The coolant is up to level. The blower is magnificent. The heater hoses are hot. The engine temperature is 85 degrees centigrade. It seems that either a door is closed or a control is stuck somewhere within all the wrappings.

I recently packed the front bearings. also replaced the steering damper. and car still vibrates steering wheel at low speed, once it passes 20 to 22 miles the car smooths out. It does not seem to be the transmission as I have run the car past first gear and it still does the same vibation.

where is the fuel filter located?

This occurred within the last 24 hours. We have owned the car for 5 years with no problem until now.

can't find model and year, what options do i have
