You can get a free scan at Autozone or Oreillys. If the "Check Engine" light is not on you may still have a defect recorded. It sounds like the clicking may be an Electric solenoid with bad contacts. Since the overdrive is suppose to activate at 40 mph and higher, the sputs you refer to is the vehicle failing to reach the final gear.

You can test this by disabling the overdrive with the button on the stem of the gearshift. If you can reach 40 mph and higher without complaint you have found the problem. Your vehicle will run well enough to take it in for repair. It will use more fuel and the engine will race more without Overdrive.

If the vehicle still sputs without Overdrive, then it is most likely a Pollution Solenoid that is interfering with the EGR system. It can also be a bad sparkplug wire or coil. Those parts sometimes short out at certain speeds and work perfectly good at other speeds. It takes just the right condition to show up.

I have tried to give you all the possibilities with the most likely first. The free scans would help you if you want to fix it yourself. Or you can use the free scans to verify what a Repair shop tells you.
