Theres a tooth that has a old metal cavity in it. Tooth also needs root canal, & its sensitive when making contact with other teeth. Pain comes & goes?

In brief: No question

What exactly is your question? It appears you have an old restoration that has deep decay underneath it, so deep that the tooth needs root canal therapy.
Seems pretty straightforward. Pain is episodic, which is perfectly normal.
