As long as I am continually accelerating or have the c/c set there are no issues. If I bareley give it gas whether it's in park or just trying to ease along it sputters terribly and almost stalls. I have already replaced the fuel filter,plugs,wires,oil etc. Any suggestions?

    Could be a bad Throttle Position Sensor. Is there a Check Engine Light On? Some times a Throttle Position Sensor will wear just at the point where you start to give the vehicle gas, it is called the 'tip in point'. It may or may not set a code. Good Luck!
