    I think I have to replace my fuel pump, is it a good idea to change my fuel filter while I’m at it? the car has just over 200,000 and not sure if its ever been replaced? The car will randomly die on me. Sometimes when it’s hot and sometimes 1min after starting it?

    Iv changed the CAS thinking it was that but still having the same issue is there anything else it could be?

    Changing the fuel filter would be a very good start, it may have contributed to the death of your fuel pump.

    I'd replace the filter and run some injector cleaner and see if that fixes the issue before replacing the pump. In case the pump is still ok. Although having said that I normally replace pumps at 200k regardless, as a precaution. But I drive remote roads where mob reception is non-existent.

    Thanks! I’ll try changing the filter first and see how she goes
