Intermittent loss of power

I've read many helpful posts regarding lack of power, pointing to lamda sensors or MAF depending on the exact symptoms, but they all seem to be constant problems whilst mine is intermittent.

My high-mileage 156 2.5 V6 runs well most of the time, but occasionally suffers an instantaneous reduction in power for no apparent reason. For example, driving steadily down the motorway with no problems, then suddenly out of the blue power is reduced so I can just about maintain 70mph on an uphill section but can't speed up. 15 minutes later it clears and all is normal.

Can sensors behave like this? Could it be coilpacks? The plugs have been changed.

It's been doing this for weeks and is getting no worse, so it's hard to diagnose. Anybody seen this before?
