Taurus is shutting down moving

My daughters 2002 Taurus is shutting down when she is driving. The car will slow down from the engine not supplying power, and then it restarts itself and she can come back up to speed and continue driving. Im going to take it for a free code reading at a local parts supplier, but wanted some opinions from the dyi experts before I proceed too much farther. This happens very intermittantly. Clues?

It could be a number of things. What is the fuel pressure reading when this happens? If there is no codes in the system you should check fuel pressure. To start with. Baro pid is another problem that sometimes wont set a code. But with a good scan tool you should be able to read pids. PIDS (reference valves for computer system) on sensors / actuators / other. HELPS IN DIAGNOSIS!
