You might clean the throttle-body and check idle air system. Any applicable trouble codes? Some of the national brand autostores used to check codes for free, if there are any. Changing the fuel filter sounds like a good idea, just make sure there is no pressure on the system before taking any lines loose. Some of the autostores used to loan out a fuel pressure gage.

Have your battery tested. When the battery has a problem the dodges will act this way.

I'd be more leaning toward IAT sensor in your intake manifold.(2 wires usually) It basically senses incoming air temperature & sends info to computer to adjust injector flow according to incoming air temperature conditions.

SOURCE: 1996 dodge intrepid runs fine but runs rough some

Check the wiring first off. Check anything to do with the engine sensors, look over the wires that lead up to the plugs. If you find any that are oily or dirty, pull the plug and clean it out. You might just try generally detailing your engine as well. The second thing to check off the list is vacuum lines, give them a good looking over for cracks.
