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?
