A cylinder misfiring can cause this sympton, check/replace spark plugs and plug wires. Also, sputtering and shaking can be caused by engine timing, have the timing checked. Another cause can be fouled fuel injectors on fuel injected vehicles.

when my dodge stratus started to do that it was because I needed transmission fluid.

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.

There are pages and pages of things that can cause a check engine light. You need to have it checked with a scantool. Then the code can be diagnosed and repaired.
