Hello,

Can't seem to find a fuel filter on my 2007 Chevy Colorado 2WD 2.9L engine.

According to a parts search: "Strainer is inside the module assembly."
Like most modern vehicles, the strainer/filter is part of an entire assembly.

I guess that puts it inside the fuel tank?

Unfortunately, yes. It’s in the fuel tank. On most trucks, it’s easier to use an engine hoist to lift the bed up. If a hoist is not available, a bed can be moved back or tilted enough to get the pump out.

A fuel filter is a filter in the fuel line that screens out dirt and rust particles from the fuel, normally made into cartridges containing a filter paper. They are found in most internal combustion engines. ... Fuel filters need to be maintained at regular intervals.

FWIW, the fuel filter for '07 Colorado is not a regular scheduled maintenance item.

Lack of engine power. An overall lack or engine power in all gears can be due to a lack of fuel getting to the injectors. ...
Engine stalling under strain. If you find that the engine is losing power under hard acceleration or going up a steep incline, then it may be down to a bad fuel filter. ...
Random engine misfire
