99 Ford Taurus Decelerates Whgile Driving

Hey,

Appreciate any help on this one:

1 - Wife driving to work on highway - car suddenly decelerates/slows down. Then picks back up.

2 - Happened 5 times.

3 - Taurus with 120,000 miles on it.

4 - Just replaced the battery.

I have no idea and was hoping for advice or things to try here.

Thanks!

When was fuel filter & air filter last changed? Good time of year for moisture in the fuel, try adding "Heet" or similar "gasline anti-freeze with moisture remover", just as an added precaution. Does vehicle do the same around town? Possibly a sensor acting up, but I would eliminate the above, cheap things first.
