Could be just about anything, but given that I had the same symptoms that turned out to the fuel pump, I would check that if you haven't already. Mine would run fine for a while, particularly when it was cold, and tested fine at the shop, but after a while under load, it turned out the pressure would suddenly drop to about 15 pounds. A real pain to diagnose, since when it was in the shop it wasn't under load, so it tested OK.

I had the same problem, but the problem didn't start until winter when it got below 0 degrees celcius. it would almost bronco jump and stall at stop lights, (almost rear ended a few people...not safe at all) and then when i'd start it up, i'd rev it and it would stall...but still starting again everytime.. it turned out that.this car is really good and developing condensation in the fuel line/tank...I went and bought a 2 dollar bottle of gas-line antifreeze (any gas station) put it in with the gas and filled 'er up with a tank of premium (cause it burns hotter) and the problem was solved almost instantly. (after about 20 minutes of driving) it saved me from having to get my entire pump replaced...try that out..if it is only since winter started(i dunno where u are) it could very well be your problem.
