    Sputtering on acceleration is usually ignition or fuel system related. Is there a Check Engine/ Service Engine Soon light on? If so connecting a scan tool to the diagnostic socket under the dash will show fuel trim figures if it is running lean for fuel or may show cylinder misfire count if the ignition is failing.
