volvo penta 4.3 gl 1999

Hi, I have two problems.

first is most pressing. Was driving it last weekend and it stopped running while I was driving at around 3000 rpm. Just stopped dead. Couldn't get it started.
4 days later tried to start again and got it to idle but when I tried to open it up it conked out again and wouldn't restart.
Is this a fuel filter problem?

second problem is at start. It always starts but also when cold always takes a long time to start. I pump the throttle 3-4 times but it just won't catch right away. I use premium gas. I put new plugs in last year and no change. Any suggestions?
