Sounds more like an intermittent fuel pump. Have you changed it out?

I agree with reelin68, all so check the fuel filter,may just be stopped up.

could be the Key with the security Chip, chip is worn and too much weight on key ring. i had to have the security system by passed.

could be your coil pack conecctions under the hood
