It seems like you have a vacuum leak in a hose some where. Check under the hood for any rubber hoses that are dry-rotted, cracks, or sharp bends in any of them.

see if you have any oil level or pressure sensors. sometimes these can get gunked up. You may need a new oil pump. I suggest you start using a senthetic oil (valvoline,mobil 1 is reccomended) after u get the problem fixed.

Sounds like you are having a fuel problem with the fuel filter. If you have not had your car serviced in quite awhile i would do so. At least change the fuel filter and check the air filter as well. Hope thias will help you.

(Posted as a comment above, but I realized it should probably be posted as a solution instead. Apologies for the double post.)
I had the exact same issue just in the last month with my 2003 Miata. Cruising along fine on a hot day on the interstate, when suddenly the engine just choked and sputtered and lost power. Both times, I was able to restart within 10 minutes and just drive away as if it had never happened.
SOLUTION: It seems to have had everything to do with a few of the electrical sensors. First time around, the CrankShaft Position Sensor had gone bad, so I had that replaced. Apparently, that sensor works in tandem with the CamShaft Position Sensor, as that sensor went bad only a couple of weeks later and caused the same problem.
VARIABLE: although my mechanic didn't think it was DIRECTLY responsible, my check engine light has been on for a few months because I needed to replace the Rear Oxygen Sensor, and I had been ignoring it due to budget. BUT, there is always that chance that this sensor was affecting the others as well. Bit the bullet and replaced it this time.
The verdict is out on whether or not this solution will last, but historically my mechanic has been very reliable.
