Intermittent problems with no codes are the hardest to identify the cause. You may have a problem with the fuel pump intermittently sticking off or a relay that is not coming on intermittently in the (TIPM) Totally Integrated Power Module for the computer or fuel system. A mechanic should monitor power to computer and fuel system when problem is happening in order to isolate the cause. The TIPM is a common problem on these vehicles.
