Look under the back of the car and look up behind your tank it's there with the hoses on each end I'm sure your changing it don't worry about the plastic clips the new filter should come with new ones but make sure you put it in right it will tell which way the flow goes it's very easy watch out the lines will pour a little fuel so don't be alarmed

Sometimes it's easier to remove also if you relieve the fuel pressure from the system. Not so much gas will exit then also.

Not sure if it's the same on an 88 as it is on my 92, but this is the easiest way. Go in the trunk or wherever the inertia switch (shuts off fuel in event of a crash) and unplug the wiring harness. This stops the fuel pump from pumping. Start the car and let it run till it shuts off. This will be a relatively short time. Then replace your filter or work on your fuel system. I use this method for all my cars and I spill very little fuel and have less risk of getting it in the eyes and mouth.

No your not suppose to change it every oil change whoever told you that was mistaken. You should change it about every 30,000 miles. Unless your extremely bored change it at the oil change.

I went 70,000 miles in my truck without replacing one and it still ran fine. Put a new one in it and still couldn't tell a difference. Just dont go buying cheap gas at cheap stations. They have a higher chance of having dirty gas

Or right after a fuel truck makes a delivery, it stirs up the fuel tank.

That's true too. I replaced my filter on my gt when it hit 50000. The filter poured out brown colored crap. It was probably the original one.
