It could be a number of things...such as...idle set to low, poor carb set up, low fuel pressure from pump and yes..a plugged fuel filter...start with the filter first and then move to the larger more expensive components.

What is wrong when a 95 Toyota Camry stalls and cuts off when stopped and acts like it is not getting gas?

When a 1995 Toyota Camry stalls and cuts off while it is at a stop idling, it is likely a delivery problem. When the car acts like it is not getting enough gas, a clog or dirty filter are likely the culprit. It could also be a fuel line problem where denting from road debris has caused crimping to impede the flow of fuel to the engine.

Check the fuel pressure. You may need to buy a fuel pressure gauge. If the fuel pressure is low you might not be getting enough fuel to the cylinders.

Why does my Snowblower start then stalls?

If it will re-start after a few minutes and then stall again, the problem is probably a fuel restriction - check the fuel filter or look for an obstruction somewhere in the fuel line (kinks, etc). If it stalls because it is flooding, check and/or replace the air filter and/or the spark plug.
