Default 30k maintence help.

I'm trying to be cheap so I'm gonna be doing most of my 30k tune up myself. but I haqve to questions.
1) How do I change the fuel filter? (pictures would help me too)
2) Should I have a proffesional check out my belts? or should I just pull on them and if they are tight and not cracked just keep them. (I'm having a pro change my brake fluid. I don't want to screw that up)
Any other advice for a beginer mechanic.

replacing the fuel filter is easy.

It's the thing sitting next to the windshield washer reservoir. When you look at your new fuel filter, you'll see..

You remove the tubes, remove the filter, and put the new one in, put the tubes back in..done

watch out tho, cuz there'll be some fuel coming out from the filter and the tubes

everything is really easy..i did my 30k myself and spent about 130 on parts and a fwe hours of my time..not bad at all i say...fuel filter is black and next to your driver side shock tower in engine compartment..belts are as easy as loosening a few bolts, which takes the tension off, and swapping them out...

I removed my gas cap and left it off for half an hour (while I changed my tranny and diff oil) and that released the presure from the lines. (or at least I think it did because there was no presure at all.) But it was simple except for the fact that one of the lines was practically welded onto the filter. I had to end up cutting the line, as close to the filter as I could, and then install the new one. Had that one line not been such a PITA to remove, I would've been done in 15 mins. It had to be the last one I tried didn't it?.
