When did you last change valve cover gaskets (and the under valve cover wiring harness)? Sounds like maybe an electrical connection issue.
I had the same problem, only occurring during acceleration, new valve cover gaskets and UVCH fixed the problem.

Can you describe what it's doing any better? Do you have any gauges? I'm thinking either fuel filter or fpr screen
