Ur-Q Problems this Morning - Bucking Bronco

Is this the dreaded fuel pump relay, or does it ring any other bells.

All input would be most welcome.

Oh yes. This sounds like the ECU is cutting out the fuel pump relay.
Most probably the ground wire is making a poor connection on the intake
manifold. Is it cold where you live? Extra resistance. Check the ground
wire bolted to the top of the intake manifold, this grounds the ECU
(brain) and the WOT and idle switches. If it looses connection the brain
shuts off and with it goes the fuel pump relay. Believe me, it's my
nemesis. HTH
