Stabbing in the dark is not going to clear this fault, obviously something is breaking down under load, it could be anything.
Usually when it is an electrical fault it either works or it doesn't and the car wont start, fuel problems on the other hand can cause the symptoms you are having.
You could have an airleak on the manifold which is getting worse the harder you push the engine, which inturn will cause the engine to run lean and cause your problem, it could be an airleak anywhere on the induction side.
I honestly think you should get the car analysed on an engine analyser which can test the car under load.
Ridiculous comments like the last one are not going to help you, you need an old school mechanic with an old school engine analyser.

The problem could be with the combustion chamber in the car. Unburned fuel dried up leaves little black particles known as carbo. That makes fuel responses sluggish, weak, etc. An overhaul could get rid of the carbon, BUT it does leave the probability of "loose compression". That happens when it isn't assembled back tightly and correctly again. The best way to rid of the carbon build up would be through the use of a "carbon ridding solution". They are injected into the combustion chamber (without taking anything apart), flushes out the carbon and other build ups inside, restoring the function of your engine. You'll gain better fuel responses, higher rpm, etc.. Best part is that you won't have to take your engine apart and risk "loose compression". Here in the philippines, we have some car shops that do the process relatively cheap. Try checking out your area.

Hope this helps

John

This sounds to be a problem with the ignition module. The module might produce a fairly nice spark at an idle, but at higher rpm's the spark should intensify, if it doesn't then the car will not run at a higher rpm.

    Use a spark plug tester, the kind that you hook to the wire and can see the spark inside a clear glass chamber, the rev the car as high as it will go. the spark should intensify, if it stays the same or weakens, the it's the module.

http://www.fixkick.com/IGN_timing/tune-ups.html

how old is the fuel?
the pump/reg holds 34-43 psi.at all times...running.
sputter, from too low RPM ? below 800
or idle fast, but sputters at 800 and more?
if the latter, that is called misfire.
if the former that is lost of idle controls.
need to now which engine. because the are worlds apart.
EFI wise !

Car drives fine sometimes then it will sputter and not go above 2000 rpms car wont go. sometimes wont start sometimes will. its a 2005 ford escape. the check engine light has been on for two years and has...


sputter, backfires, droping of rpm's usually coz of fuel stravation, check fuel pumps, fuel filter, cars with carbs checks fuel floats fuel line... if fuel line is blocked will result with the same symptoms... another angle you need to check is electrical... uneven or unstable electric supply will result to the same problem... if your encourtering bad smell, maybe you have an overheat engine, or oil level is very low... check brakes maybe you have a broken brake linnings { this just pops up to my head}...
