It might be a bad fuel pump or even worse a worn catalytic converter if you have been carrying heavy loads and givin the car sox tryin to move it you could have worn it out and the heat (carbon monoxide goes back into the engine and chokes it up its not as if the car isn't getting enough fuel its not getting enough oxygen.
maybe you should buy a high performance cat.
and im not advocating racing but a good tear down to wexford and back up should keep carbon deposits from building up!

run fault codes and look for problem in the ignition coil/s or ECM . This is a problem related to an overheating piece of electronic equipment like a coil, injector control , position sensor

Rev counter jumps whilst idling and then engine cuts out


Your problem sounds as if the thermo sensor....which controls the air fuel ratio when engine is cold....is faulty. It is a common fault on this model.
This is not an expensive part, and takes only a short time to fit.
Good luck
