While driving, my 2001 Mazda 626 will all of a sudden start to sputter like it is not getting fuel or spark, but if I give it some gas, it will usually start going again. I have changed the fuel filter and spark plugs, but this did not fix it. A fuel system cleaner additive to the gas did not help, either. No codes are shown.

05 mAZDA 6 - ENGINE BEGAN SURGING THEN IT WOULD STALL USUALLY ABOUT 1500 RPMS. mazda dealership said sounded like computer so we brought one and it didn't fix it. It stayed in the shop for 6 weeks and...

first -for it to record a fault the car has to be run for some time --15 minutes or 50 miles because intermittent faults are not always recorded
as an example consider this
on your phone you have a pin number
now if you press the incorrect numbers 2 times nothing happens and you can start again next day
( in the car it is like you pressing the numbers 2 times = no code)
however press the incorrect number 3 or more times , you need a PUK code to get back in
( in the car pressing the wrong number too many times = to a code now being reported)
carefully record when it stalls ( at lights with the foot on the brake), changing down ratios when slowing down) surging on acceleration--rpm reading is critical or deceleration --road speed and engine rpm correlation
fuel level situation when it occurs ( full , partially full or close to empty)
from you statement, I would suggest that you put a can of quality injector cleaner in the tank on filling for a couple of fills as it indicates an injector/s problem and that will not record a code unless a cylinder misfires for a set period of time
it is easier to do the simple things first then have the codes read by an accredited service shop that has experience on your make of car

1991 geo prism brake and battery came on while driving for few minutes then went off what's it trying to tell me?

the battery is really charge failure.
but happens normally under 2 ways.
1: motor stalls, (car have M/T or A/T)
2: motor RPM drops real low, to like 500rpm or less. near stall.
and generator (alt) drops off line.
all normal, next time , look at RPM of engine when the lamps come on and that tells you what is happening.
buy a tachmeter, if no dash tach opted.
or use a mech. tach and use it while driving.
