A fuel filter is a maintenance issue, if your not sure, change it. Just make sure there is no pressure on the system before you take anything loose.
If you think it is a fuel issue, you need to check the fuel pressure. You might check for troublecodes, some of the national brand auto stores will check codes for free. They might also loan a fuel pressure gage.
