This is happening to my car right now and Im just getting the car idling fixed. It can't be for sure, but your car may need the idling checked.

Something is contacting in the engine, my guess is the fan. Have someone sit in your car and accelerate for you and look around to see if you can find anything hitting. If not, take it to someone.

I sometimes sputter when I'm nervous. Please reword the question and tell me what year and engine and describe what you are doing with the car when "sputtering" occurs. Would help if you can think of additional description of what you mean by "sputtering".

Sputtering is almost like a person spitting. The car runs but it doesn't have full power, could actually sound like someone spitting. Missing is when there is a consistent and constant slight jerking or vibration. Unless it is really bad it is hard to feel.

Have the engine tuned.

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.

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.
