I had a 2007 Colorado with the i5. IIRC the filter was in the tank. Not really serviceable? Not sure....

But yes, agreed, change the fuel filter if you can. It is an often overlooked maintenance item for sure. A real fuel pump killer too if you ask me. (not to mention drivability problems to be avoided)

I'm currently in electrical school so I need it to last me atleast 3 more years driving 80 miles round trip 3x a week. Again thank you for your all help and time. I do not have a scanner that will give me voltage feedback I'll see if I can't find a budget one on amazon good idea granite blue

That hose just might be your O2 code. Was it a lean code? If so that thing is probably leaking a little (or a lot) Either way a new O2 (upstream one) is not a bad idea with high mileage. They do wear out.

On 2004 intro models and 2005 there was an external fuel filter under the truck on the inside lateral frame. Pretty sure it was on and just about below the passenger side. On 2006 and up . . . no more external fuel filter, just the one in the tank for the fuel pump.
