Hi.
if it was a fuel filter problem, i would expect far more problems when you are under power, as the demand for fuel is much higher.

problems at low revs suggest a small vacuum leak.
check all of the vacuum pipes coming from the engine inlet manifold, especially where they go to the brake servo unit.
check they are not damaged, and are securely fitted at both ends.

Check the idle fuel pressure. Load the electrical with headlights and heater defrost etc and see if problem gets worse. Attempt again with all accessories off. Could be fuel pump is getting low voltage at idle or fuel pump is failing. Bad fuel pump would definitely be a problem high fuel demand. Check vacuum line between pressure regulator to intake manifold.

Check for a air leak in the intake manifold. Gasket/hose etc. The P0171/P0174 is an indication that not enough fuel or tow much air. You can sometimes hear the air leak during idle.


Best solution is to use a graphic capable scan tool and watch the fueling trim/idle.

check or replace fuel filter for clogging up. if it does clog up, then you will not get enough fuel to engine to run it properly. it will stall at stops, and be very sluggish on takeoff. check fuel pressure if need be. could also be a bad catylist convertor. so check above first. Rent a fuel pressure guage from advance or oreilley's and check fuel pressure if needed. they will tell you the proper fuel pressure for your car.
