Many things could be occuring here, from an ignition problem to a fuel system issue to a fuel or PCM relay issue. Testing is the only method of narrowing it all down.

Very hard to determine why; although if I had to guess I would think that perhaps a relay is intermittently failing. When you remove power and add power back, it may be enough to make it work again. The 1998 Continental has a CCRM (Constant Control Relay Module) for one thing, which I believe contains the fuel pump relay. A diagnostic test is really necessary to monitor what is and what is not functioning properly.
