I think your car has fuel injection and the fuel pump isn't working. Listen at the fuel filler and when you turn the ignition on the pump should run for 2 seconds. If not check the relay first then the pump. They are known for bad fuel pumps.

Would a fuel filter keep from car from getting power?

Yes. Had a 1994 Suburban 4X4 with 350 V8. Started loosing power at about 184,000 miles. Had fuel filter changed by rear gas tank, frame, mount. It cost $64 at Jiffy Lube to have it changed. The old filter clogged and blocked about 1/2 the fuel flow at 184,000. Trunk ran like new after that, so I have them changed at about 100,000 miles now. What a difference!

Why would a 97 Suburban cut off after taking off from a dead stop ie stoplight etc?

The odds are that you have either a defective fuel pump that is not getting enough fuel pressure to the injector system, or the fuel filter is clogged and is preventing fuel getting through. If the fuel filter is the problem, you may hear the fuel pump (located in the fuel tank) run for several seconds after you shut the engine off. If you don't hear this, my guess is that the fuel pump is bad. I had to replace the fuel pump on my 1996 Suburban last year. If you do replace the fuel pump, spend an extra $12.00 and replace the fuel filter after you have driven the vehicle for a 100 miles or so. This will get rid of any material that was stired up when the fuel pump was replaced.
