Check to make sure the air filter is clean. If it's clogged it can prevent your engine from having proper air flow.

Had this happen to me on 1999 escort - turned out to be broken fuel pump. Alternatively the fuel lines could be blocked/twisted but this is unlikely to happen suddenly whilst driving.
