Question type: Maintenance & Repair

Car wont start, it turns over but wont start.
Changed the fuel filter today and after we
changed it it seemed to stay started for a
few seconds but then would stop. The
battery is new, the fuel pump works, the
spark plugs all produce sparks. And ideas?
Please I could really use some help.

Is check engine light on? If so need to get codes. Auto zone will do this for free. Then post codes back on here. Could be any number of things. Check fuel pressure at fuel rail. This will insure that fuel pump is putting out enough pressure. Could also be dirty/faulty idle air control valve or throttle plate, stuck open pcv valve, stuck open egr valve or possibly a vacuum leak.
