Check your ignition wires, coil packs, and check your injection system. make sure that you're getting plenty of feed from the fuel pump, and make sure your injectors are working.

Not sure to be honest as to what the cause could be ,i would suspect a coil pack problem or even the ignition module if it has one but i think it may be built into the ECU ,although you havent stated if this is a diesel engined vehicle so having more information would help a great deal

It sputters and hesitates sometimes when on low speed

There are a few things you can look at here:
  1. The EGR Valve or Idle Air Control Valve
  2. Check for misfires in your cylinders, possibly bad coil
  3. Check your fuel pump and fuel filter
Those are the most common issues with fords spitting and sputtering

Jeep spits and sputters after driving in local traffic

When it's running poorly, how do the brakes feel? Is the pedal very hard? I know this sounds like a strange question, but I had a similar (but not exact same) problem which after completely testing everything three times and even swapping a pcm from a known good vehicle, I managed to fix,without replacing any parts but am not sure exactly what was wrong.(I believe I "outsmarted" the computer, but am still not sure what the underlying problem was)
What I do suggest is that you individually test each sensor to see if anything is out of range. I'd especially look at the map sensor and throttle position sensor, possibly the cam sensor and sensor shaft.Stop buying parts and do the testing. Only then, after actually verifying a failure, should you replace any more parts!

1995 Jeep grand cherokee is missing while running. When it is under a heavy load (driving fast) it runs fine. When idleing and slow driving it spits and sputters.

I have the same problem on my 95 grand cherokee laredo. Sometimes it starts out fine and after about 10 miles it starts spitting and sputtering. Then after a while it seems to clean out and run fine again for a little while. Then other times it starts out spitting and sputtering at the begining. I changed the fuel filter and that was not it. It is a 4.0L 6cyc. Any Ideas?

Spit and sputter/2004 PT Cruiser

Check for fire to the coil pack. These have a tendency to go bad on these cars. Could be a cam or crank sensor, these also go bad. If you haven't changed the plugs in 30K, this is due also, wires every 60K. May need to actually get it hooked to a machine to find out for sure.
