I have a question....My car has been jerking and the check engine light comes on after a few days it goes off I got the light check and its reading fuel rail pressure sensor. Can that be the cause its jerking and misfiring???

My car has 274861 miles.

You may have a bad fuel pressure sensor but will need to have fuel pressure checked for proper pressures since low pressure may cause misfire. Replace sensor and then see if it fixes problem and then go from there.
