If it did this after changing the fuel filter, then there is the possibility that doing so may have dislodged any sediment in the filter canister, or other debris picked up from the environment and it got pumped into the fuel rails.

I recommend a fuel system treatment product called B12 by Chemtool. Add to about a half tank of fuel, that will be about the safest concentration for occasional use. Then, don't start the car right away. Turn your key to "run" wait a few seconds and then back off again, repeat three times. This will fill your fuel lines with the treatment. Don't start the car, let it sit for about a half hour. Then try it again.

What tools do i need to change fuel filter and where is the filter located at on the car?

The only true tools you need is your hands, pliers/blade screwdriver. The fuel filter is located in the undercarriage rear adjacent to the left side of the fuel tank. It is bolted with a singular screw onto the uniframe just to the side of the rear-left wheel. The filter is equipped with quick-release connecters that require a firm grip and tug, releasing the fuel lines from the filter. You might want to use a fat blade screwdriver and/or pliers to pull back the connecters, only don't use too much force as this will crack the plastic keepers, defeating the entire job. Be patient but firm and all will work out.

Fuel shut off switch location

The fuel pump shut off switch ( inertia switch ) is in the drivers footwell behind the kick panel. The panel is probably held on with clips and will pop off with a light tug.

Filter is mounted directly above the pump module on top of the fuel tank. You may have to drop it down a little bit to change it. Also check the fuel pressure with a good gauge while it's running poorly and see if it's out of spec.
