I replaced the fuel filter, air filter, plugs and wires, and fuel pump on the car. It will crank up, but skips bad. When you take your foot off the gas it cuts off. Sometimes it makes a sputtering sound. The motor turns over fine and there is no knocking or smoking.

Defective coil pack, crossed plug wires, cracked/broken spark plug, low compression, water in fuel, inop. fuel injector, egr valve stuck open, vacuum leak(s) are some possibilities! Scan test needed, light should be on!
