My car sputters or chugs when it idles and when
giving it gas but once you reach your speed say 55

fix but still does it. Any ideas?

Car was chugging then stalling, changed fuel pump, cleaned fuel rail, new plugs and wires, oil change, new O2 sensor, new coil pack, I think that's all that was done to it but it's still chugging but not stalling. Sounds like it's almost misfiring in the engine. Does that help?

Well it's back in the garage.
