Could be a faulty fuel pump relay - in the vicinity of the battery. I have more or less the same engine as you, but my fuel & a/c controls are laid out differently than yours. Check the archives. There's been alot of talk about this part.

How long since you last replaced the fuel filter?

Mine had the same symptoms as yours. First i checked out the entire ignition system (since it felt like it lost the ignition), but it turned out to be the fuel filter.

It's a 10 min. DIY job.

Never criticize someone until you've walked a mile in his shoes. That way, when you do, you're a mile away -and you have his shoes!
