Testimonial: "I cant remember the code that came up but it was for random cylinder misfire. Someone told me that theres a fuel filter built into fuel pump and cant be replaced unless you buy a whole new unit. I cleaned throttle body already with special cleaner. but did nothing. Replaced air filter and didnt do anything either."
Usually a sputter will occur under load conditions like going up hill from a lack of fuel. Start by changing the fuel filter.

I have a chevy uplander and you have to open the passenger door and its on the side of the dash, to the right of the glove box. You will notice a small rounf opening with just enough room for 2 fingers to go in. the whole side will come off when you pull it.

The fuel filter on this vehicle is located inside the fuel tank and is an integral part of the fuel pump module assembly. As such, it's not replaceable by itself and can only be serviced by replacing the entire pump module. It's a "lifetime" filter, in theory anyway, but it can plug up if there has been a large amount of crud that has gotten into the tank somehow. The best way to determine if the filter is restricted is to have the fuel pressure tested as part of a road test drive to see if the pressure remains steady [indicating a good pump and ok filter] or drops off [indicating a restricted filter or weak pump] Hope this helps!

The gas tank and emissions are under vaccum and a loose/bad seal or missing gas cap allows the vacuum to leak out when the pcm detects irregular vacuum it will turn the service engine light on.
