Yes, it certainly could be the fuel filter, but if the problem goes away ABOVE 50 mph be suspicious of other problems. Perhaps the throttle position sensor. Go ahead and change the fuel filter and if the problem persists run a diagnostic test. A 1999 should be "OBDII" (On Board Diagnostics revision 2) and you should be able to learn quite a bit of information about the vehicle by reviewing the results of the test. You can ususally rent or borrow a code scanner from an auto parts retailer.

Could be a plugged fuel filter.
It could be a plugged fuel filter. Or a plugged catalatic converter. Or a weak coil
It could be several things, but first I'd change the fuel filter, possibly drain the tank if there is alot contaminants in it. On_mitch

There would be a number of reasons why a car might jerk while you are driving. Your fuel filter could be clogged, something might be wrong with your carburetor, or your fuel pump.
It would eventually get stopped up. When this happens while driving it could be really bad!
TRy changing the fuel filter .
Could be a fuel delivery problem like a plugged fuel filter.
wy it quit drivingfuel pump and filter. I had the same situation happen to me. If it continues check for exhaust problems If fuel pump and filter does not fix the problem, it could be the MAP Sensor, the PCM module, the cable going to the PCM that is the closest to the driver or the torx screws holding the cover on the PCM being to long and shorting out.
Depending on the make of the vehicle, it could be any number of things. It could be a plugged fuel filter, air filter, vacuum leak, ignition problems, etc.
The most common issue is a fuel filter. It could be a few other things, but the fuel filter is where I would start.
Replace the fuel filter and have the ignition module checked.
put the filter in rinse for a little while and see if that helps You have a damaged filter element in the D E filter. A: Sand filters will sometimes blow dust back to the pool.
Clean them and see.
If it is front wheel drive it is probably the from motor mount check that.. if not check all the basics first. Spark plugs fuel filter etc.
Could be a number of reasons but the first one that comes to mind is a plugged fuel filter.
Check for good fuel flow. Clogged filter can cause this. A bad fuel pump could cause this.
Could be time for a tune up including a new fuel filter.
this could be several things. If it occurs often there could be a fuel pump or fuel pump filter problem. The gas filter in the line could be clogging. The mass airflow sensor cound be going out.
Sometimes a tune up can stop this kind of thing in a vehicle. New plugs and plug wires, fuel filter and air filter should do it. PVC valve if needed.
Did they change the fuel filter and the air filter as well. Odds are they didn't replace the fuel filter as they're kind of a pain in the rear to get to.
