Hello and welcome to just answer. I have seen something like this before, and it ended up being the ignition coil inside of the distributor. It is breaking down under a load at times. I am leaning towards this because you have no codes and fuel pressure is good. I recommend replacing the distributor and plug wires. I am pretty sure that this will take care of it.

I hope this helps!

Hmmm, really? And still no codes at all? Have you checked for contaminated fuel? Water in the fuel?

Expert:  Chris replied 1 year ago.

Strange one. Do you have a scan tool that can display real time sensor data and watch the sensor values while driving it when it acts up?
