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 1 year 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.
