Answer
right now you don't know if it was electrical problem or a fuel problem. There was a change in 2000 to a Delphi injection system, which is a better system. There are two things you can do. One is wait till it happens again and then see if it electrical or fuel problem or two, take it into a shop and have a diagnostic run on it and see what problem codes come up. Then you would know what it is.
