The fuel filter is located underneath the car in front of the gas tank.
You have release the fuel pressure. Remove the fuel filler cap, locate the fuel test port on the fuel rail on the passenger side on the end of the right real fuel rail for a 3.1L engine.
3.8L engine yhr test port is located at the pressure regulator under the trim cover.

What are the signs of a bad fuel filter on a 2001 buick century

Hey Keith, you have all the signs of a blocked/restricted fuel filer. Will also struggle, especially going up hills if there is a missfire. Missfire will usually turn on engine light but sometimes not. If light is on and you have the system scanned it will tell you which cylinder to check. Mis fire codes usually plug,coil, or coil pack. I would try filter first if never changed.

How do I change a fuel filter in a 1993 buick century because it will run but maybe 30 minutes later it will kill when I stop when I start it back it kill when I put it in gear

First, have you verified that it is the fuel filter? If so, please tell me how you came to this conclusion. I only ask this, because if you are certain you problem is within the fuel delivery system, your fuel filter could be a contributing cause, not the root cause. You may have a bad fuel pump, which is located inside the fuel tank. Whether it be the fuel filter or fuel pump, these types of problems are consistent and are not impacted by temperature. You can find a good video on how to replace your fuel filter on, go to auto category, and search under "forgotten filters".
