Try replacing the fuel filter. if you have 50,000+ miles on the car, and your fuel filter hasn't been replaced, that could cause your car to sputter, backfire, and race while it's idleing. your sending unit in the gas tank could also be going bad, but i'd try replacing the fuel filter first, it's way cheaper and easier than dropping a gas tank and then finding out that wasn't the problem.

What is causing your Volvo to sputter and hesitate?

Other posts I've seen suggest it is a weak fuel pump and went on to say it was the one in the tank that was replaced and not the one next to the fuel filter under the drivers side of the car. I will try this on my car tomorrow and see if it fixes the sputter.

Why does swimming pool jet seem to sputter?

When I hear the term "sputter" in conjunction with swimming pool jet it usually indicates "air" returning back to the pool with the water. There are several reasons for this to occur, from low level of pool water causing the pool surface skimmer to draw in air, to, an air intrusion leak at or near the front of the pool pump. Several other possibilities can exist but, bottom line is the "sputter" is generally associated with air in the system.
