could a dirty fuel filter be a the culprit of really rough idle and hesitation thats so bad it barely lets u accelerate because its misfiring so bad? it seem to do it mostly after about 15 minutes of stop and go driving.

spark plugs, ignition coils, fuel filter, fuel pump?

ya ur problem sounds very similar to mine. i already cleaned the maf and when this first started happening it was because my intake boot had came off the throttle body so i cleaned it and screwed the boot back down but while i was test driving it, it ran fine until it got hot then the idle started to jump and the car started to shake and it would barely accelerate. i just replace the fuel filter last night and test drove up to the store and back and it ran fine. im not sure if i got it hot enough through so i am going to drive it some more this week and see what happens
