Are there any suggestions for a 2000 Chevrolet Malibu that experiences sputtering or chugging when trying to accelerate over 50 mph especially when going uphill or with the AC running?

First of all, if the check engine light is "ON" then that would be the place to start. If the fuel filter has not been replaced in the last 2 years then I would do that.

There are a couple of reasons why a Nissan Pathfinder could be sputtering. The sputtering can be from bad gas or a bad fuel pump.

You can watch this animation to understand the principles of sputtering and especially magnetron sputtering. The main difference between magnetron sputtering and other sputtering methods is the application of magnetic filed around the target in order to energize argon atoms for bombarding the target. Using magnetic field leads to trapping electrons in the magnetic filed created around the target which enhances plasma. This results in higher ionization of Argon atoms and bombarding rate that finally increases deposition rate. http://www.heraeus-targets.com/en/technology/_sputteringbasics/sputtering.aspx

I sometimes sputter when I'm nervous. Please reword the question and tell me what year and engine and describe what you are doing with the car when "sputtering" occurs. Would help if you can think of additional description of what you mean by "sputtering".

Have the engine tuned.

If a car is sputtering at high RPMs, the fuel pressure needs to be checked. If the fuel pump can't keep up, this will cause sputtering. Also, the car should be checked to make sure the valves are adjusted properly.

stuttering, sputtering, fluttering, cluttering...

This is happening to my car right now and Im just getting the car idling fixed. It can't be for sure, but your car may need the idling checked.

Uttering, muttering, fluttering, cluttering, and sputtering.

One reason why your 1994 Nissan Altima could be sputtering at an idle is because of your spark plugs. It could also be caused by the idle sensor.

If it is still sputtering, it is important that you take it to a mechanic to have it checked.It is possible that you did not change it well. Take it to a professional mechanic if you are not one.

Could be in need of a tune up.
