Do you have a Check Engine light on? A misfire is a sign of a fouled plug or faulty ignition coil. Replacing the fuel filter is good preventative maintanence, but won't fix your issue. I'd focus on getting the vehicle scanned for codes and help you pinpoint your problem.

No check engine light, just the misfire. You are probably right though, hopefully a COP, but because no light I think it might be the PCM. Any suggestions on a quick troubleshoot to determine which?
