Hi, welcome to Just Answer. I’m Ron and I’ll be helping you
Before we get started though, Please understand that I don't know
your skill level or tools you have to assist us. Also understand that
I can't see, smell, hear, or touch the vehicle either, so patience is
appreciated. JA is a great Q/A site, but it does NOT replace a
repair shop.
My goal is to make you happy and get a great rating in return for
my time. Sometimes I have to give you bad news that I know you
didn’t want to hear, so please don’t shoot the messenger.

The ignition module may be failing or the fuel pump can have a flat spot on the armature.

When it happens again be prepared to check spark at the plugs with a spark tester and check fuel pressure with a gauge. We need to isolate which one is missing.

Thanks, Ron

Where is the ignition module located ?
Expert:  rpmdiag replied 10 months ago.

It's inside the distributor along with the crank angle sensor. You just replace the complete distributor if it's bad.

Thanks again, and please remember to rate me 5 stars and keep this link in case you need me again later on.
