On my way to work this morning, maybe 3 miles into the trip, I tried to pull away from a stoplight and the car would barely move and acted like it was going to shut down. After a lot of stuttering, it finally picked up and made it to the next stop light about 1 mile down and did the same thing. This time it completly shut down when I pressed the gas. Got it to start again & made it to a parking lot where I drove around a bit and got the same reaction stopping at stop signs. I parked it, gave it gas while parked & the engine shutters and stalls.
Fuel pump & filters maybe? Any thoughts and help is appreciated.
Thanks.

Sounds like you are on the right track fuel filter normally is the culprit. When did you last do a tune up, starting with a good baseline is imperative.
