Exclamation Changed fuel filter now what

The last few days i've been having a problem when starting the truck. It always starts then within moments of starting up it starts sputtering and then dies. It will usually do this 3 or 4 times before finally starting and running right.
Going down the highway i have to get at least halfway on the go pedal for RPMS to raise any...just doesnt seem to have as much power as it should.
Changed the fuel filter last night and its still giving me problems
Any ideas?

Oil was changed less than 1000 miles ago. Truck doesnt have a plug to plug it in, well isnt wired up i guess.

I also noticed a very noticeable chatter type noise coming from what seems like the right side of the engine on the way to school this morning. I dont know if that has anything to do with my problem or provides a little more information for some of you more knowledgeable people

so it runs and starts but sputters? Id check to Fuel pump just to rule it out. It my understanding that if the FP is giving up the ghost it'll still run but like **** and sputter. Just a thought before we assume its your HPoP

Yes it starts up but you can tell she doesnt want to, its obviously not getting enough fuel but the reason as to why it's not is what im trying to figure out
Starts up runs for maybe a second or two then just gradually dies out

How can i check the fuel pump?

Yeah I have a habit of trying to eliminate the fuel pump as a suspect right away. Its way cheaper than the HPOP swap. Put your ear to it while a buddy cycles the key.
