Question OT. Fuel filter location 95 Suburban?

(1995 Chevy Suburban 350 non-vortech)

My truck severely bogs when I floor it. I first noticed it when coming over a mountain pass (after filling the tank). It will eventually reach highway speed after really struggling. When I reach a cruising speed, the truck will hesitate and be "jerky". There are no problems in starting the vehicle.

I'm thinking of changing the fuel filter out, but need some direction. Could you let me know how many are there, and their locations. Please give me any info that will make it easy and safe.

Thanks!

lrlagmay,
There is one filter on your Burb located on the main frame rail on the passenger side near the rear wheel. It is a fairly large canister as far as fuel filters go. Can be a real b**ch to get off if its never been replaced before. Becareful not to twist the fuel line or round off the tubing nuts. A tubing nut wrench is almost mandatory. Hope this helps.

P.S.: You will take a "gas bath" so be ready!!!!

I thought it was on the drivers side.... has been on the other 3 chevys i had (but not suburbans)
Only advice i can give is to pull the relay or fuse for the fuel pump and run the engine...that will take the fuel pressue out of the line and not spray all over you when you open it. Have plenty of rags and a small bucket to catch any gas...

I think Wally is correct about it being on the drivers side. I also thought it was about in the middle of the truck (front to rear). Good luck.

I had a 95 Yukon, it was on the driver's side on that. I also took a gas bath when I did mine.

Make sure the O-Rings stay on the fuel lines when removing from the filter.

Yeah, maybe you guys are right, it might be on the drivers side. Getting old, memory is going south. I would have checked to verify but toooooo much snow, slop, salt to get under there just to check. Plus, I'm just to lazy

In any event, its definitely on the frame rail, you'll find.
