Ford E-350 - surges forward, stalls

My van has been acting strange. I will be driving along, and the sound of the engine will suddenly change, as if I had pushed on the accelerator. Sometimes the van jumps forward, and I have to take my foot completely off the pedal to prevent it from racing out of control. Other times, it will just sound like (increasing RPMs) like I had pushed the pedal down to 'race' the engine a bit.

Other times, what sounds like 'the opposite' of the above happens, but I don't know how to describe it very well. When this happens, I think its 'about to stall' because a few of the times it did stall, acting like I was out of fuel. (Both times, cranking the starter (longer than usual) was all it took to get her running again.) When this happens, I try to go home or pull over and wait - because it seems like if I drive it too long like that, it is more likely to stall.

If I wait a few hours or over-night before driving it again, its usually okay again.

Does anyone have any thoughts on what is causing this?

What year is it? If newer than 1996. Autozone will check the codes that might be there for free. That might help too.
