Today I was driving on the highway. I was doing about 70 and the car started to lurch back and forth. I pulled over to the side waited a couple of seconds and then got off the highway. The rest of the way was ok as I did not exceed 50 mph. This has happened once or twice before while I was doing about 45 but not as bad. What could be causing this?

Usually the check engine lught will indicate a problem with an electrical component, sensor... Since that hasn't happened, start with checking the fuel pressure. Here is a how to:
