    I don't think they ever put the fuel filter in the tank. AFAIK, the filter for the 5vz-fe has always been on the frame.

    if its the 2.7L then chances are your fuel filter is below the intake like mine.. if so goodluck changing that damn thing :D it was a PITA on mine small hands help , and a gasp* body lift will definately help..

    DAM! Did he say it was a V6? You are right, if its the 2.7, its a pita. Doable, but just awkward.

    Yes, it should, if the filter is OEM. I believe it will look different if it's an aftermarket filter though.

    Your fuel filter is not in the tank, only 2nd gen Tacos are. Your filter is located along the inside frame rail right under the driver's seat.
