To find your filter, just start at the gas tank and follow the fuel line toward your engine. I believe your filter is on the frame rail.
If you never replace your fuel filter before, go ahead and do it; it might fix your problem. It's an easy job (and a cheap one), and even if it doesn't fix your problem it needs to be replaced anyway.
To confirm a problem with your fuel system, do a fuel pressure test; if pressure okay, your filter is not the problem (I would still replace it though).

Come back if you still have the same problem after you replace it.

-Check your fuel pressure; if low suspect your fuel pump, relay, low voltage at the pump, bad fuel pressure regulator, leaky fuel injectors.
-Check compression in each cylinder; if low suspect leaky/blown head gasket, worn valve, cracked cylinder head.
-Check your ignition system (your must have a strong spark for your car to operate smoothly). If you never replace the plugs and wires, and inspected the coils, now is a good time.

If all the above is okay, you could still have problem with a sensor, or a big vacuum leak.
Have your car scanned for codes if you haven't done it already. It should tell you what the problem is.
