If it just up and quit it would most likely be your pump and not the filter. Take a screw driver and touch the metal end to your gas tank. Put your ear on the hard plastic end. Have someone put the key to the ON position. Do you hear it humming? If so, it should still be working. Next check to see if you have good spark. You may want to change out your fuel pressure regulator also. Very easy to get at. Here's a quick video: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=EZnxwWC8Umw If you are having no spark, your coil may have failed.
