1998 buick lesabre sputtering?

When it gets hot out my buck lesabre will sparodically lurch when giving it gas or when im driving at a steady speed it will sometimes lurch or feel like sputtering, when its cool out it doesnt seem to do it like in the morning but the more it warms up it will do it but not all the time, any ideas?

Try cleaning the MAP (carefully) and cleaning the throttle body. If that doesn't work, can I have it for 24 Hours of Lemons?

I smelled the intake leak on Firebretha's GMC from 100 feet away. True story.

man i got it end of 2002 with 7000 miles on it old ladys car garage kept - ive got130k on it, its almost like it will ave periods of no fuel, i dont know when i even changes the fuel filter, maybe that could cause it, it also does it more with the AC on and again the hotter outside the worse or when going up a long hill but its not consistent, had the intakes changed out at 25k due to leaking.

No lights no faults, i was reading some shit last night it could be the fuel filter as its back by the tank i dont think it was ever changed and we ran the tank on empty for awhile - didnt run out but it was low and maybe some crud got in the filter and it would make sense that when towing and going up a hill it would cut out almost as if it was missing fuel, but downhill i dont hink it did it. im also gonna throw in some new plugs - ac delcos and good wires, i just put a set of plugs wires in but not the best.

For the most part , if you had a misfire , the light would go on . I would try the fuel filter first and then go back to the ignition parts .

Well i had the fuel filter change, standard oil, tranny too and it still will do it but only when it gets hot and mostly when you turn on the A/C - wtf is that shit, i dont get it. Unless the a/c is putting more load on the engine. I bught some MAF sensor cleaner so when i get home ill clean that + i was reading that running non ACdelco plugs with those cars have caused people issues so i bought some acdelco iridiums to put in. but the turning on the ac thing has me baffled. any thoughts?

Its usually what the three coil packs go into. Its like a flat plate with one or two eletrical plugs, and three spots for the coil pack.
