Q: How can I be sure its my fuel pump that went out not my fuel filter acting up

asked by on

I have a 2001 ford f150 that I have been having trouble with. It started acting up about two weeks ago and now I can not get to it start. It turns over just will not crank. Through out the two weeks it would stop cranking and then it would. My questions is how do I know its my fuel pump and not my filter?
My car has an automatic transmission.
