Strange Idle limited 07?

I have been have a strange problem that happens about two or three times a week. After driving for a little while then coming to a stop at an intersection, my engine idles funny like there is a miss, engine sound like it is going to stall. I'm thinking it might be the fuel filter, just a guess. Where is the fuel filter located? Any input on this problem would be great.

Ive been having a simular problem with my 07 Wrangler. But on top of the occasional bad idle when at a stop, Im having trouble at low RPMs while in 1st or 2nd gear. Its kinda like a studder, I can feel the Jeep bob alittle like its not getting a constant flow of gas like it needs too...... Was told it could possible be my Fuel Filter being clogged, the only thing is Ive never delt with anything deal with a fuel system on any vehicle Ive ever owned. Any advice would be much appreciated, or a pic of the location of the fuel filter would be even better if that is the issue that is.

My guess is a bad sensor, but I'm no expert.

Make sure the air filter is not clogged up with dirt. It could be some sort of emissions test too. Many times emissions logic tests are run during idle.
