Q: my 01 acura cl shut off on 2001 Acura CL

My 01 Acura cl turned on for 3 seconds then shut off, I tried turning on again and sounded like it would start but it didn't. First time I Ever had a problem with my car.
I'm thinking it might be the gas filter?

It could be many things unfortunately we would need to do some basic tests to figure out what is wrong. The main relay (also called fuel pump relay or PGMFI relay) fail, also the ignition switch electrical portion fails causing a similar problem. Cranking over the engine while cracking pen the fuel line at the fuel filter will verify the fuel pump is at least producing pressure.
