The fuel filter for 93 to 99 dodge neon is inside the gas tank. it is part of the fuel pump. to replace it you have to replace the whole thing. the part is beween $280 and $340 depending whether you have a metal or plastic fuel tank. i had this same thing a week ago with my 97 neon.

    would be interested to know if anyone ever had success at removing just the defective pump from the assembly and creatively replacing it w/ one of similar size/pressure specs from another manufacturer. ANYONE???

the fuel filter is located on top of the fuel tank and it must lowered enough to replace,you don`t have to drop the tank all the way but do the job with no more than a 1/4 tank of gas as it makes the fuel tank lighter when its being supported when doing the job.the gas straps will have to be disconnected from the car so they will give you enough room to drop the tank.

The fuel filter is on the top of the fuel tank and there is also a fuel strainer on the bottom of the fuel pump module and under normal conditions these never need to be replaced unless the in tank fuel pump is replaced.

My Neon keeps stalling

Try the simple stuff first and ask yourself these questions:

How old are the spark plugs? (I think this is 90% gaurenteed the problem)

Is the car getting enough air through the filter?
Is the filter dirty? (replace if so)
If not you might need your idle advanced a little.
