I am trying to have the fuel filter changed in my 2001 PT Cruiser. I know that it is inside the gas tank but where. The parts guy at my Chrysler dealer said I'd need to buy the whole fuel pump assembly because it was attached, yet when I went online and found a fuel pump the guy said it didn't come with the fuel filter. I really need to take care of the problem and am tired of the conflicting answers. Please help??

How difficult would it be to replace the fuel pump on an '87 olds delta 88? A friend had offered to help me do it..My mechanic basically said he didn't "want to do it" since it is apparently a nasty job and entails pulling ( and of course, draining) the gas tank. Is it something a couple of reasonably handy "normal" guys could do? BTB.. the car has 138 K miles on it. It's a lil' bit rusty. PS.... I AM aware the F.P. is INSIDE the gas tank.(Some Kind of GENius design, there, to be sure...Good ol
