Question Fuel Filter Location on 2004 Sentra

Where is the fuel filter on a 2004 Sentra 1.8s? I went to the standard oil change place to do my oil/filter/etc and asked them to change the fuel filter, but they told me it was in the fuel tank.

Heck, I know the fuel pump is in the fuel tank, but it seems a little akward for the fuel filter to be in the tank. If I don't have to take it to the dealership to change it out, I can do it myself.

So, if you have any thought or any links to a diagram of where it might be at, I'd be grateful. I'm just a little lazy to crawl under the car and look =).

You cant miss it, right by the pump, although i think you might just be waisting your time to be honest.

It's not really a filter, but more of a screen. It should not really need replacement for a long, long, long time.
It isn't likely you need it.

As far as I know, the spec-v has a life-time fuel filter that never needs to be changed, not sure if the qg18de is the same way. If the filter is in fact by the fuel pump, then you don't need to change it.

My thoughts.....wouldn't a fitler right by the fuel tank cause the tank to fill up with junk over time, or even the pump? I mean with the filter in the engine bay, you have an oportunity to change the filter, removing all the junk with it. Does this make any sense?

Dude, fuel filters are better left alone. Unless a professional told you it's messed up, don't bother with it. Those things are going to last forever. A mechanic told me one time as a matter of fact, that a new one could cause some problems on a car. (not the sentra, but another car I had)

Yeah, I guess you've answerred my question. Doesn't make since to have just a fuel 'screen' for a lifetime. The point of a filter is to do exactly that, really well.

Oh well, I'm not going to complain about that. About to make a 300 mile round trip through the Texas hill country in about an hour. The sentra, 'betty', will be waxed, just had new oil, and will have the trunk emptied of excess weight just to test my max mpg. Got 33 last time....
