Answers :

Is the check engine light on? Is it misfiring? If the DTC codes from an EEC test, free from Autozone, it could be COPs, coils on spark plugs. The check engine light will usually falsh n and off indicating raw, unberuned fue getting into catalytic converters. They will overheat and destroy themselves and they are part of exahust manifold. Very expensive. ad COPs can take out the PCM, engine computer.
\015\012If CEL light is on or flashing, get codes read first.
You have an intermittant electrical connection to the ignition,or if this occurs especially on bumpy roads it can be about anywhere in an electrical system,start first, at a stand still try wiggling the ignition key(up&down) ,a little bit,as not to shut the vehicle off,but to see if possibly there can be a bad connection/contact internally inside this key switch,also grounds on the body have been known to cause high resistance connections and when you hit bumps they make & break connections also,this could be a very hard one to find,especially if it happens very sparodically
