    ** Welcome to the club,

    1) amazon, GMpartsdirect,
    2) filter is located in the fuel tank with the pump. ( good for 100k miles )
    3) deep pans are normally aftermarket and should have a logo on them. My GM pan is just unmarked.

    Your fuel filter is located in the gas tank, its supposed to be good for 100,000 miles. If your trans pan is 3" deep, its a deep pan.
