2005 Mercury Montego • V8 2WD Automatic • 100,000 miles

What can cause my 2005 Montego to intermittantly go from running ok to sputtering and lurching, losing power, (mainly up inclines) until it finally will die. Wait 5 minutes and it will run ok again? The instrument panel also intermittantly go blank, yet the car may be running fine or bad.
