So I would start with the spark plugs. Don't wait for the issue to start again. You may also wish to replace the plug wires. After all, the car is 13 years old and a tune up may have not been done on it during its life span (most cars post 2000 are supposed to go 100K before their first tune up). If the car still has issue after replacing the above mentioned parts, it could be the transmission control module that needs to be recoded. Swing it by auto zone and see if they can pull any codes to shed some light on the issue. Best of luck!
