good morning my name is ***** ***** I will assist

3 thing come to mind for this.

first, it will not go away. it needs to be found with proper diagnostics

1. crank sensor. it can fail intermittently. this should code if it does.

2. distributor. common failure on these units. oil contamination inside the distributor is the reason for the failure

3. fuel pump. it can seize up at times causing this issue. monitoring the fuel pressure will confirm this at the time of the failure
