There is a correct flow direction for a fuel filter. if installed backwards the car may not start because not enough fuel can flow and the is not enough fuel pressure. Make sure the flow direction is positioned witht he arrow directed towards the outlet line to the engine fuel rail/carb. IS fuel the problem? IT takes not only fuel, but spark and combustion to start a motor. is the fuel filter on right?

I would start with changing the spark plugs, air filter, fuel filter. I would also try a couple of bottles of fuel injector cleaner, and dry gas.

When refilling the oil some may have dripped onto the belt which would cause it to start slipping badly and squealing loudly.

A lack of fuel is the most common cause for an automobile to turn over but not start. A plugged air filter can also cause the vehicle to turn over but not start.

not necessarily, only if the filter is completely clogged will it cause the engine not to start. this rarely happens suddenly. you would notice a sever lose of performance first.

It would if it is so clogged that is blocks the flow of gasoline to the engine.Yes, if an insufficient amount of fuel is getting through the fuel filter.

if you mean it wont move, perhaps you have drained the transmission oil and not the engine oil. this would cause it not to move.

yes it also allowes moister in the fuel line A leaky fuel filter can also cause FIRE in YOUR GARAGE. Probably ought to consider it a high priority fix.

If the air filter is dirty and clogged it will not allow enough air to pass for the engine to run, the filter should be changed along with the oil changes for best performance or at the least yearly, with quarterly cleaning of the filter.

Sometimes when you run a vehicle out of fuel trash in the bottom of the fuel tank can get picked up and clog the filter try changing your fuel filter and see if it will start.
