Question about 1995 Ford Probe
Yes a fuel filter can cause the problem but I would say it's most likely the fuel pump or fuel pump relay. Can you hear the fuel pump running when you turn on the ignition?

If the engine is running at a higher rev and stalls it could be the fuel filter clogged to the point that the fuel cannot maintain the rpms. If it keeps running at low rpms you have an indication that the fuel is sufficient for the lesser fuel requirement. Of course this could be the fuel pump itself. Put the key to the on position while listening thru the gas tank for the humming noise of your pump. It will engage till the pressure reaches 60-80 psi, about 2-3 seconds. This could also be a severe vacuum leak, but higher rpms would usually sustain. If you can get it to idle, listen for hissing noise that may may lead to a cracked or detached vacuum line. Next go for the filter, blow through it, replace or exchange it if it seems blocked.

You need to see if there is spark at the plugs. If so you may have a fuel problem. Usually a filter being clogged will show up once fuel usage picks up,, like highway,. Check the pump by having someone turn the key and listent to the gas fill tank. That should narrow you down. Backtrack as necessary.
