Might be time for plugs/rotor/etc change but I don't think that is it,
as the problem is very intermittent, and when it happens it will
suddenly clear and performance is strong. Not likely that water is in
the wells unless he has been parking it under someones sprinkler system
(hasn't rained in PHX for a couple of months)

I'm coming in late, and I know I mention these every time anyone has a
driveability issue, but are the cap, rotor, wires and plugs all good?
No chance of water in the plug wells?
