Where"s the fuel filter located in a Chevy Malibu 2013? I can"t find any free info about it online (might pay for one of those services like alldatadiy), but message boards speculate it"s integrated within the fuel pump inside the gas tank - is that correct? Considering this trend in newer cars, I wouldn"t be surprised.

Also, I"m curious if it"s worthwhile having it replaced since my Malibu 2013 is coming up to the 100k mark. I can"t imagine a filter (or even a "lifetime filter") allowing the same flow after so many miles.


Like most modern cars, the filter is located inside the pump assembly in the fuel tank. To my knowledge, you"d have to go aftermarket to purchase the filter element only; they are all "pump assemblies," these days. With modern gas and modern fuel tank/lines, there just isn"t that much rust or debris in fuel anymore.

Unless you are having symptoms or have low pressure at the rail, the built in filter is probably doing fine.
