problem solved! (fuel filter)

Hi everyone, well as i had posted before, i've been having some odd issues with our 2001 e150 van. I thought it was a tranny thing as when i would floor it, the engine would rev up but go no where. It would often have a hard time starting in the morning, even on slower speeds, it would kinda buck back and forth and when driving on an incline, there was no power.
I thought maybe it was the serpentine belt going bad, changed it, wasn't it. Then i thought.."hmm maybe not enough fuel"? i saw there was a fuel filter on it, and didn't know if it had ever been changed, so i had it changed a few days ago. Today i had a chance to try it out (got lots of snow on the ground and don't wanna kill myself), i floored it and the van came back to life and took off! As well, i noticed no more weird screeching noises coming from engine compartment. When in park or at a stop light its hard to tell if the engine is running! very smooth, unlike before (stumbling).
So if you have some of these issues, maybe have your filter changed?
