2001 Subaru Forester 4 cyl All Wheel Drive Manual

Hi there, when im driving my car it runs great everything good except when Im coming home from town and I have a long hill to come up, it sounds and feels like it's not getting enough fuel. Sputtering and losing power. I just changed the fuel filter, I just put in one I had here, inline. Not like the little bllack pot one that was in it when I bought the car. Did notice that the fuel is dirty, the replaced fuel filter lasted one drive. Any Ideas? Would be great. Thanks. Sue

That fuel filter may be restricting fuel. I suggest replacing it with a standard subaru filter. The black pot looking one your talking about located on driverside fender well. That should solve your issues. Keep me posted.
