Default wierd power issue.

I was in the middle of speeding up in my 4.0 and it was like I twitched my foot off the gas and then it was fine. It was like an instant power loss then fine. I figured I just let off the gas a little. I felt it for the first time ever yesturday. Then it happaned again yesturday when I was trying to pass someone. Which could have ended badly. What could it be? Gas fuel pump issue? Air intake issue? 240 thousand mile issue? What could it be.

Hiccups like that are usually either an interruption in spark or an interruption in fuel. And interruption in electricity can cause both of those.

Have done any work under the hood lately?
