Hello and welcome to Just, Super mechanic here. About your vehicle.

Fuel Filter Location

Fuel filter is part of the fuel pump module, and is not a serviceable fuel filter.

What part of the answer is vague? The fuel filter is within the fuel module with the pump and pick up tube. To replace it you would have to replace the fuel module. I didn't make it that way the manufacturer did, sorry

So in order for me to replace the filter I need to change out the pump? Won't that get expensive?
That's correct and it is rather expensive compared to an external filter. Here are the factory prices for the pump.
