Gosh, this is another question that doesn't quite give us enough information. I'm guessing that even though the car won't start sometimes, that it DOES turn over. In other words, it's not a battery/starter problem? Is your check engine light on, or has it been on recently? This sure sounds like a fuel system problem to me, and I think you're on the right track since you replaced the fuel filter. I wonder if it might be a fuel pump problem?
