Yes, This sounds exactly like what my 97 geo metro was doing. I replaced the fuel filter(thinking that was the problem, obviously it wasn't). Then I finally took it to someone who knew what they were doing and told me it was the fuel injector. I changed that and I haven't had a problem since. Sounds to me like it is definitely the fuel injector.

check the fuel pressure controller and the idle control valve, if one is messed up better to replace both as they go hand in hand.

How do you tell if your car needs the fuel injector replaced?

I had a 1987 Pontiac Grand Am I found out that the injector needed to be replaced when the car would start for only a few seconds and the die out abruptly. The injector would only spray enough fuel into the throttle body in order to start it then would stop, the injector was located in the middle and above the throttle body making for an easy repair.

Why would my car die on highway?

There are many possibilities. You could have clogged injectors, or even an intermittently bad fuel pump. try running injector cleaner through your car. Fill the gas tank to the top and put one bottle of injector cleaner in. Next time you fill up see if it solves the problem. If not, have the injectors cleaned, or the fuel pump and or filter looked at.
