Fuel Problem?

2002 Imp TS, 2.5 - 142,000 miles.
During a long trip about 5 hours into it in 90 degree heat, it started sputtering during uphill acceleration. Pulled over and had the Fuel Filter replaced, made it another 15 miles, then it quit. Had it towed and the next day it worked beautifully for 4 hours, 80 degree temps. Something is overheating.
One shop said Cat Converter clogged, $1200, took it to a muffler shop and they said the Cats were fine, they suspect the Fuel Pump.
What say you guys/gals?

Re: Fuel Problem?

When the fuel filter was replaced was the engine primed 3 or 4 times before firing it up as it could be trapped air in the fuel lines.
Also check to see if there is any fuel leaking from under the car whilst the engine is idling.

Re: Fuel Problem?

being fair pumps are common to fail, but its normally the connections under the seat,
Can you hear the pump prime when you first turn the key with the engine lights on ?
