Change the fuel filter again, if you are at 52 now and it was changed at 30 that was probably a few years ago based on that mileage. The last few years I was changing my Zetec fuel filter yearly. I think the 10% ethanol fuel clogs them quicker or maybe you got a batch of dirty gas and the filter did its job or a combo of both. If you DIY its easy and cheap to change fuel filter, the part should be $15 and minimal tools are required.
