Why not purchase the AC Delco filter specified for the car,and you'll be certain that it's the right one. I wouldn't recommend any of the discount pats store garbage anyway...

I've always asked for one for my car. Not sure why they show two different ones for your car. Have a copy of VIN when going to dealer,and they determine which one is yours.

I do not jack up car for fuel filter .. drive up rear on ramps back up on ramps .... then I do the nylon line removal after washing it down ...

Just looked at my 95. The filter should be all metal with some plastic clips on the ends. Pushing those clips “in” will release the plastic fittings on the nylon fuel lines. Pull the lines off of the filter and change the filter. Put lines back on and you are done.

Have been using non delco filters for many years, with no problems. Once I saw China on the parts I ordered from the dealer in the mid 90s, I stopped caring.

Brought a smile to my face when I saw USA on all the Moog parts I bought from RA last week.

I have no issues with Fuel Filters from places like AZ or Advance. I don't think you need to go Delco for a Fuel or Oil filter. The last Fuel filter I installed was a Purolator Brand Fuel Filter. I stay away from anything Fram but for the money and convenience find that Purolator is a pretty good brand to use.
