The ICM or the Ignition Control Module is the brains behind the spark plugs. The ICM tells the spark plugs when to fire and lets the engine know when gas needs to be released for proper engine ignition. Sometimes if your ICM is out or going bad, you may be able to start your motor up nicely once and then when you turn it off it may not start back up but it rarely ever goes out.

The ICM is under the coil packs. Coil packs are those three round things on top of motor that your spark plug wires are connected to. Fuel filter is located under car on driver side, in front of back wheel and in about 18-24 inches from side of car.
