My name is ***** ***** I am a professional here at Just Answer. I noticed that your question was not getting a response and thought I would see if you still need help with this.I apologize for the delay and I hope I can still assist you with this here.
In allot of cases a fault like this here can be caused by an intermittent failure with the crank position sensor itself.If this has not been replaced or checked with a scan tool when it is acting up this should be done and replaced as needed.
Thanks Pete

O.k.,if you can I would have the pump tested to see if this is the cause here.This will need tested when the vehicle is acting up.I have seen fuel pumps act up like this here before and cause this issue needing replaced.
Thanks Pete
