starting issues

I have a 05 Cobalt with 108,000 miles on it, and it seems to have a problem starting. The fuel filter has never been replaced, and it was really, REAlly low on oil when the engine shut down. Now I, as her boyfriend suggested a clogged fuel filter as the cause of the problem. Is there any other suggestions anyone can think of?

Yeah, I think the time's right for a fuel filter change. May also want to check the spark plugs for excessive wear.

Hopefully, with low oil in the vehicle, nothing internal was damaged.

Was the car taking awhile to start or would it run really rough when it was idling?

Hopefully, the fuel pump is still operational. 108,000 miles is still relatively new, but odd things do happen.............

No codes thrown?
