Lose power climbing hill. The sputtering minimizes when increasing acceleration could this be caused by bad spark plugs? Havn't replaced plugs in 4 years

1991 Nissan Maxima RecallsNissan Recalls 1990-1994 Models Due to Problem with Fuel Filler Tube
Nissan has recalled 1990-1994 Maxima and 1990-1992 Stanza models because a mixture of mud and salt may get trapped between the fuel filler tube and wheel housing, which can cause corrosion. This can lead to fuel leakage and a possible fire. Also, the left rear seat belt retractor is mounted to the wheel housing, and in the event of significant corrosion, the mounting could fail in a vehicle crash. Dealers will inspect these vehicles and corrective action will be taken depending upon the extent of the corrosion.
