3000 rpm cut out.

when i get into my car and start it up. all is well. i drive down the road . all is well , untill i get to approx 3000rpm and then it's like the engine runs out of fuel then seconds later it's fine. this won't happen again untill the car is switched off and started again.
i have tried starting the car and being in neutral, revved it to 5000 rpm and on the way up , at 3000rpm, it does it but for a fraction of the time. i'm assuming because it's not under load.
does anyone know what this is or has it happened to anyone?
look forward to the advice and help.

it's always had it's servicing at the correct intervals. once it hit that 3000 (or thereabouts) it seems to starve itself of fuel, or thats what it feels like, and carry on as normal and it won't happen again untill the engine is switched off and back on again and then repeat. i did have a dodgy crank sensor and replaced it but it seems there are so many different faults linked to that one sensor so i'm putting on a spanky new one. i'm sure it's just easier to put in a 400 pontiac lump. still wish i had my old t/a. none of this electrical gizmo stuff to worry about, ah the simple days.
