CAR CUTS OUT.

The car cuts out whil driving. It happen at about 3800 to 4000 rpm. There is no warning to it or power loss. Even if the car is standing still and I rev it to +- 4000 rpm and let it dwell there a moment, she cuts out. Then I have to wait about a minute, she starts normally with no problem. Sometimes on restarting, the engine does not start emediately but cuts out directly as soon as it catch fire and start.

Please help.

Do you have a check engine light and when was the last tune-up?

Could be caused by one of the following below

Oxygen sensor.
Catalytic converter.
Fuel injectors dirty/sticking.
Mass airflow sensor/Airflow meter.
Throttle position sensor.
Crankshaft position sensor
Knock sensor
Manifold absolute pressure sensor.
EGR Valve
Fuel pressure regulator leaking or defective fuel pump.
Fuel contamination.
Foul/defective spark plugs.
Open spark plug wires.
Ignition coil/Coil packs defective.
Incorrect ignition timing.
Cap and rotor.

Note: If it doesn't apply disregard it and keep testing.
