Sputtering while driving

2645 Views 6 Replies 3 Participants Last post by  SUVord
My 01 Tribute V6 just started doing this today. Once I am up to cruising speed, 70-80km/h the truck starts to sputter sporadically. It doesnt do it non stop, just does it every couple seconds kinds thing. Any ideas? It doesnt throw any codes, and I even drove it around with DTC mode on so I could hope to see the code when it came on, but nothing. Starts fine, idles fine, accelerates fine.

Fuel injectors, or maybe the fuel filter? At high speed, those things kick out fuel like an angry horse, and if it's only a high-speed thing, then it would have to be something directly related to engine speed/combustion. Vague, and I'm only an amateur, but that's how my logic is serving me today.
