The filter is underneath on the passenger side behind the front wheel. Release the pressure first, or you will get sprayed with gas.

SOURCE: 1998 corvette c5 has miss at idle

Try cleaning your Mass air flow sensor. When the MAF sensor gets dirty, it can cause your engine to run slightly lean and make sure your engine is running at normal operating temperature with a good thermostat.
At idle, if the MAF is slightly dirty and giving the wrong signal to the PCM. There is a good chance that your engine have a lean condition enough to cause it to have a miss. It's may just be in the perimeters that it will not set a check "service engine light" on, but will cause it to miss.
Start with that and post us back, be glad to help and thank you for using fixya.

SOURCE: I have a 1998 Corvette

I had the same problem with my 98 Corvette with 69K miles. Mine did exactly as you described soon after I purchased it in November of this year. I went online and read posts of others with the same problem and how to try and fix it. At 1/4 tank add 2 bottles of Chevron Techron cleaner and fill up with good name brand premium fuel. The Techron cleaner will clean the sulfur residue and other contaminants off of the fuel level senors in each of the left and right hand side gas tanks (C-5's have two gas tanks on either side connected by a transfer pump with each side having it's own fuel level sensor). I did this and so far after nearly 3 tankfuls there's been no recurrence of the problem. However, if this doesn't help then the alternative is to replace some if not all of the components mentioned earlier. I got a $1300+ repair quote from my favorite garage prior to applying the above fix. I'm no mechanic and I may have some of the actual part names incorrect. I hope this helps you out and fixes your problem! BTW, you can also use a full can of SeaFoam cleaner in lieu of the Chevron Techron cleaner. I used the two bottles of Chevron Techron the first tankful and used SeaFoam in the second tankful. I plan to use a bottle of SeaFoam every 3-5K miles to help keep this problem at bay and keep my fuel system cleaner!

Location of fuel filter in a Ford Focus 2006

BE WARNED the fuel system is under pressure.It will need to be depressurised first! If you don't know cars PAY A MECHANIC TO DO IT! The filter is underneath the car. It is tucked up next to the fuel tank. It will be at the front edge of the tank.

Fuel filter

The system is pressurised! Be careful!

Remove your fuse for the fuel pump.

Start the engine and idle until the engine stops.

Try starting it again to make sure there is no more fuel in the system.

This will depressurise your system. Undo your fuel filler cap just to make certain!

When this is done, push the clips down the pipe away from the filter, or remove the clips.

Pull off the pipes and replace the filter.

Reattach the clips in the same place.

Screw in the fuel filler cap.

Replace the fuse and crank the engine until it fires.
