One reason a 1995 Honda Civic might sputter and cough while accelerating during normal driving is because of a bad coil. Another reason could be a bad fuel pump or fuel filter. Still another reason could be a bad oxygen sensor.
Weak fuel pump? Bad fuel/air filter? Water in fuel?
Check the fuel filter or the fuel pump.
Possibly bad fuel filter
The most common issue is a fuel filter. It could be a few other things, but the fuel filter is where I would start.
check fuel pressure while accelerating if it drops replace fuel filter. these filter are small and clog fast if there is more then 20k miles on filter its clogged. if pressure check for codes and go from there
it could be a bad fuel filter and fuel pump
Replace the fuel filter.
Check your fuel filter. When was the last time you also checked your air filter.
A plugged up fuel filter.
There are several things that can cause your 2002 Ford Taurus to hesitate when accelerating. A dirty air filter will cause the problem.
Do you have a custom exhaust? Maybe your accelerating to fast. Also check or change the gasoline filter. Check your air filter.
