I drove my car a few hours ago and it run with a kinda miss but didn't fell like a miss, more like a lope. Shut it off when I got home and had to run again. When I went to start the car to leave it acts like it don't have fire. I just replaced the fuel filter, plugs and wires about 7,000 miles ago. I'm at a loss but I am thinking Control Module. I just don't want to waist the money if that isn't it. Am I thinking in the right direction?

Before buying anything, check the fuel pressure. Often you can "rent" a fuel pressure gauge from a local autoparts store. Autozone will refund you the entire "rental" price when you bring the tool back. Post your fuel pressure here for more help if needed.
Fuel pressure should go up to about 50 psi (key on, engine off)
Tt should hold about 35 psi for about 20 minutes (key off, engine off)
