Hi there, the filter is on the pump itself, you actually have to seperate the pump housing to get to the filter, because it is not a maintenance item.
Your symptoms are common with a weak fuel pump, so the pump itself may be your fault not the filter. If you want to try the filter you need a sock type filter like they use on an aftermarket walbro racing pump or similar, otherwise you need to clean your filter out.
Let me know if you need anything else. thanks
