Welcome to JUST ANSWER small engines, let me try to help you !! There is no fuel filter, only the tank strainer in the fuel tank outlet. I suspect you need to drain the fuel bowl on the carburetor, and check the needle valve and float , they may not be letting enough fuel into the bowl to keep engine running.
