Your fuel filter may be clogged and need to be replaced. You may also have a weak fuel pump or trash in the tank. The strainer on the fuel pump in the tank may be clogged( build up over years of use).That may be why it cranks fine the next day , the trash has settled back down to the bottom of the tank. I would like to add to this answer. My Trooper is a 1999 and was having a similar problem. It was like chasing a ghost. It would start cold every time but after it warmed up, I would have to press the accelerator to get it to start. The reason, I finally discovered, was because the fuel pressure regulator was bad. What I did was to run the car until it was warm then shut it off. Then go to the fuel pressure regulator and remove the vacuum line and check to see if there was fuel present in the line. If there is, the regulator is bad. In essence, what this does is to bleed fuel back into the combustion chamber after you shut off the engine therefore overloading it with fuel the next time that you start it. That's why you would have to pump the gas to clear it out when starting it warm. That fuel dissipates over time which is why its fine in the morning. GOOD LUCK.
youre driving a ford!
Check the 1989 Honda Accords timing. If the engine has jumped time then the engine will buck and sputter.

Start with replacing the fuel filter, it may be plugged.
Could be a plugged fuel filter.

MINE WAS DOING THE SAME THING AND IT WAS THE EGR VALVE!! THAT FIXED IT AND IT'S RUNNING GREAT!!:)GOOD LUCK
bad oxygen sensor bad map sensor
I expect the motor to sputter to life any second, now... The clerk was so exasperated, he could only sputter.
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.
if it tends to sputter and have no power i would suggest the fuel pump. it it is only after the car has warmed up, or a while after you start driving it might be the ignition module.
A weak fuel pump or a partially clogged fuel filter will cause this. Can also be other things.
My camero doesn't sputter ever, even when you accelerate.
Could be a bad ignition coil Have vehicle scanned to see if problem has set any codes
It may be a EGR valve issue. This valve is normally closed at idle and opens at about 40mph.
My bet it is the spark plug wires or spark plugs or rotor cap if it has one. If the wires are going bad, they are worse "under load" (while driving).
What causes a car to jerk while driving can be based on many factors. A car can sputter due to engine compression issues, bad transmission, engine misfire, bad spark plugs or even low fuel.

IF YOUR CAR IS HEATING UP(OVERHEATING) AND YOU STILL DRIVING IT, A FAULTY THERMOSTAT IS THE LEAST OF YOUR PROBLEM.
ignition module? i had a ford that did that once it warmed up. either that or the fuel pump cant handle the pressure from the acceleration. dont know exactly because i am not a mechanic but........
A malfunctioning battery can't provide enough power to your ignition system when the motor is idling can cause sputtering. If there is not enough gas, that can cause your vehicle to sputter. If the spark plugs fail to fire will also cause your vehicle to sputter.
