99 Cobra won't start

I store my car all winter as I'm from Detroit but i usually start it once a month and take it for a ride if there's no salt. I tried to start it two weeks ago and it cranked fine but did not turn over. Could the fuel pump go bad just sitting for three months?

You should be able to hear the fuel pump when you turn the key to the on position.

the fuel pump is ok but now it seems it could be the fuel filter. do you need a special tool to remove it?

You might need a quick disconnect tool, but i did mine just fine with a flat head screw driver. I slid out the locking pins on each side and popped off the hose on each side. thats all.

you shouldn't have a problem with using a screwdriver or pliers to get the old plastic clips off. Just make sure that your new fuel filter comes with new clips as well...that way you don't have to worry about damaging the old ones getting them off.
