Question. I need some help

my truck sputters when i accelerate, new plugs, wires. new cat. im trying to find out if this is true... they told me it could be my distributor... but wouldnt that throw the check engine light on? my moms bf has an altima and he replaced the fuel filter and it got rid of his sputtering.???

try seafoaming and cleaning the throttle body first. may help your situation. then change the fuel filter.

With sufficient thrust, pigs fly just fine.

It could be the distributer or the fuel filter. you can check the ditributer and see if there is any build up on the points. they should be a nice silver or copper color. If they look good, replace your fuel filter.
