Hello and welcome to Justanswer!

There are many things that could be causing the symptoms you're having and it will take some testing at the time the problem is happening to know exactly what is going on. I suspect you're either losing spark due to a sensor issue or the fuel pump is failing, but an exhaust restriction can also cause these symptoms.

The first step in diagnosing the problem is to use a scan tool or code reader to see if any fault codes are setting. Have you checked for codes?
