Will a dirty fuel filter make your check engine light come on? on 2005 Kia Sorento

I have a 2005 Kia Sorento my check engine light has been on for 3months. I went to Auto zone they said it could be a clogged vapor canister or gas cap. When I went to jiffy lube to get my oil changed they said I needed a new gas filter what do you suggest I do?
