Make sure you have power to the fuel pump. On this model you should hear a quiet high pitched mosquito in your ear sound when you have all the lights on the dash panel just before you turnover the engine. If push comes to shove, take the fuel pump out, keep the power on it and run it through a bucket to see if you can at least pump water through it. Make sure you let it dry out all the way though before placing back in the tank.
If you mean the fuel filter then YES that could have vary likely been your problem .Its always good to change this these vehicles are known to have fuel pump issues and there a pain to replace and not cheap. Never let the tank run completely dry eighter you have a 2001 the pumps last 10 to 12 years at best so keep this in mind
check another spark plug first off,if more than one are dry could be a possible broken timing chain, remember even though its EFI it also still uses valves,its also possible you have bad fuel.try a shot of starter fluid thru throttle body....if it starts after that consider draining fuel tank and adding fresh fuel, its also possible you have a timing issue where as the fuel is burning off plugs but not powering engine
Replace the fuel filter to help the fuel pump, but it sounds like the fuel pump check valve has gone bad and your losing your fuel pressure to start the engine. Your going to have to keep priming the fuel system by turning the ignition key to the run position for 5 seconds 3 times before you try to start the engine. The only fix for this is to replace the fuel pump, and that is costly. Good luck and take note: the fuel pump has a life time of around 150,000 miles and anything past that is borrowed time.
does it make any difference if the engine is cold or warm ? if when its warm and it starts ok your spider part is not working properly or not plugged in right check it again .. check it by using starting fluid if it starts ok its the spider part bad .. did you replace it with new ? holler if you need more Jerry
The fuel pump will run for a short time when you turn the ignition key on to prime the line then waits until the engine is running. Check the fuel filter and replace if plugged then check the fuel pressure should be abouve 27 psi
