2002 Chrysler Concorde 6 cyl Automatic 174000 miles

engine will not go above 2000 rpms, then stalls out. It seems like it might be a fill filter. Where is the fill fitler located.

Oxygen sensor
Catalytic converter
Dirty fuel injectors (cleaning the injectors often fixes this).
Bad MAP (manifold absolute pressure) sensor
Bad TPS (throttle position) sensor
Bad or dirty MAF (mass airflow) sensor
Low fuel pressure (leaky fuel pressure regulator or weak fuel pump)
Vacuum leaks (intake manifold, vacuum hoses, throttle body, EGR valve)
Bad gasoline (fuel contaminated with water or too much alcohol)

Sometimes, what feels like a hesitation is actually ignition misfire rather than lean misfire. The causes of ignition misfire may include:

Dirty or worn spark plugs
Bad plug wires
Weak ignition coil
Wet plug wires

There are a couple of fuel filters, on on the pump its self in the tank (not always) and there would be one inline under your car. Been so long since I was under a LH (Concorde), you will want to start at the fuel tank and follow it forward. You should be able to spot it no problem. But, do look at other things too. The list posted is a good place to look.

You won't solve a running problem on a Chrysler product by replacing the fuel filter, except on diesels. The largest volume of fuel flows through the filter during coasting. Suspect a filter if the engine dies when removing your foot from the accelerator at highway speeds.

I can't explain why, but I did read about a similar problem caused by an incorrect air gap for the crankshaft position sensor.
