When the engine is cutting out, the tach doesn't move during the half-second of "engine-off". The engine rpm stays constant. Is that another clue. Thanks to all for the responses I've been getting. I appreciate all the thought that's gone into trying to help me. It will take a while for me to check out all your suggestions (as of yesterday, the car decided to behave itself and it ran fine).
