Have you removed the spark plugs to look and see how the cylinders are burning fuel, while the plugs are out you could check the compression in each cylinder,
How about the fuel pressure, what is it ?
Any engine codes ?
I will be able to help you a lot more with this info.

96 and up at least 2 and up to 4 . A 96 and newer 4 cylinder will have at least one before and one after the catylitic converter and an 6 or 8 may have 3 or 4 if they have two cats .

2001 Passat 1.8 Turbo engine sputtering and hesitating

My car was doing this and I had to get all new coil packs... Mine were replaced under recall at the dealership at no cost. If you take each code and google it, or even check a VW forum, I'm sure the members there can provide a lot more thorough information...... I have a 2001.5 Passat myself and when one thing goes out they all follow suit. I will help with some research for you and post back...... But I'd check the coil packs that sit atop the spark plugs.

Sputerring going uphill; 1996 buick century. Way more often on the interstate than on 55mph roads. Seems as if higher speeds cause it to miss while going uphill. Ironically this a.m. i used my heater and...

I would check the fuel pressure with a gauge first. Assuming the check engine light is not on.
You didn't say if it is the 4cyl or V6, but both have plug wires and coil packs that could be failing. Even the crank sensor could cause the problem at high speeds and under a load.

I have a 2000 chrysler neon i put a flow threw exaust on it. this problem was going on before, to there is a hesatation on take off and chugging when driveing i replaced the coil pack and plugs and wires...

4 cylinder cars need back pressure (cat converter, muffler, and resonator) to get your full power to your car. Do you have any of these things on this car? If not, the best thing to do would be to put at least your CAT or resonator back on. Or, you should check out your O2 sensors. They may be getting too much flow. Hope this helps, James Booth. Please rate this. :)

Where are the four o2 sensors on the 2006 lexus es 300 located, are they all different models or all the same. I believe they're two on top and two on the bottom.

usually in pairs two of one type threaded into exhaust before catylitic converter and two of another type threaded into exhaust behind catylitic converter(looks like little muffler in exhaust close to engine.)
