I have a 97 jimmy and it does good till your up to speed (anything over 50) it starts to studder when gas is evened out (not gaining or losing) but fine when you give it more gas or let off


If the check engine light is on, you should check for trouble codes first.
The first thing that comes to mind is the EGR valve. It could be opening when it should not.
Another thing is a regular cylinder miss. The transmission is going into overdrive at 45-50 mph which puts extra load on the engine. If you speed up it downshifts into 3rd which gives the engine more power. A regular miss could be ignition or a fuel injector.

My 97 Legacy started to studder when stepping on the gas from a dead stop. It does not seem to studder at higher speeds. Do you thing the Fuel filter may need to be changed?

possible but sounds like you have a misfire occurring is your check engine light on if so this will give you a code determining which cylinder it is occurring on.i would start out with new plugs and wires especially if you know they have not been done lately
