Leaning towards electrical. Coil, distributor or crank sensor.

scan for codes even if the light ain't on , these may shut down when certain codes appear , these may need proper fuel pressure just having it won't do , are the injectors original ? those have about an 60-80,000 mile life

It is electrical related
