Hi my name is ***** ***** I will be happy to assist with this today.In some cases I may need more info to assist better.I apologize for any delay.

Your fuel filter is contained in the fuel tank as part of the fuel pump/sender assembly and is replaced when you replaced the sending unit.

Did the vehicle run before the pump was replaced or was this an issue before and after the pump was replaced with the no start issue?

Let me know so we can continue,thanks Pete.
