have you ever changed the fuel filter ?
Have you changed the air filter too?
99% of the time its the fuel filter. These cars are 15+ yrs old, and the fuel filter is supposed to be changed every 36000 miles. I seriously doubt very many people can tell me the last time they had theirs changed or changed it. Its an easily overlooked yet critical part. I find this to be a common problem with sputtering and running poor, esp on high fuel demand such as putting pedal to the metal,etc.
check your gas filter
If its clogged
Weak fuel pump Bad fuel filter
it will usually sputter or sometimes not run at all
