MITSUBISHI MIRAGE FUEL FILTER PROBLEM

1997 Mitsubishi Mirage

Not sure if it's related but the past 6 months my car has been shaky on start but once I'd hit 3rd gear it would go away and it would just happen every now in then. Recently just got it inspected, fuel filter replaced and oil changed and all was fine. Then my car went out on my while I was driving and wouldn't start back up now it starts intermittently and if it starts doesn't drives normal. My dad looked at it and when he popped the fuel filter lid to make sure it was getting fuel he thinks he released some pressure or something bc it started right up but he said it looked like it was working fine. My battery had been replaced within the last year so it's not that. And we noticed most of the times it won't start it's cold outside. My dad is thinking its something electrical or a sensor but when we took it to the shop it started for them and the couldn't get a code from it and said to start with a tune up so my dad is doing that but it doesn't seem to be helping.
