stalling caused by fuel filter?

i have a 93 nissan altima. i bought about a year ago and for the last six months it has had a stalling problem. every time i change the fuel filter it will run fine for about 800 miles and then check engine light comes on and it starts stalling. i have changed the filter about 5 times and it seems to straighten out the problem only for a little bit. i know you are suppose to change it every 30k not every 1000 so what else is causing this problem?
thanks

the code triggering the check engine light might point you in the right direction.

The code may help. It could be the strainer that is inside the gas tank.
