Stalls suddenly, then takes off again - What gives?!?!

Driving along, no problems, running perfectly, then all of a sudden she dies. But not just a gentle die, I mean a sudden loss of speed, a total lurch, then takes off again. Sometimes she dies all together, and I need to start her with the key again. Happens a few times, then right as rain, no problems again..... Just comes out of the blue, no idea what is causing this - Any ideas?

I had a similar problem to this, turned out to be a leaky plug wire.
