1996 C220 will start but won't idle

Recently I was parked at home (extremely low on fuel) and when I tried to start it up a few days later, it would start but wouldn't idle. The startup seemed normal, but the frustration set in when it wouldn't seem to idle at all. I've done some research and it sound like it may be the fuel filter? The fuel pump sensor was changed back in 2008, and the cars been driven seldom since so I don't think it could be that. Does anyone else have an suggestions as to what I should do? Thanks
