Many such problems show up when you scan the computer during a diagnostic test. Try to borrow, rent or buy a code scanner to see if you can use that to get an idea what's going on. If that doesn't help, try replacing the fuel filter. That can occasionally cause a problem like the one you describe, and it often won't show up on any diagnostic codes.
