2002 chrysler pt cruiser sputtering?

my wifes car hesitates and sputters when you accelerate from a stop and sometimes while its idling also it gets more consistant when ac is turned on i figure it does it more often with the ac on because of the extra load the compressor puts on the motor but i cant figure out what the root cause is any suggestions?

RAMON if you dont have a valid answer i dont want your opinion bro
yea i have digital odometer on that car turning key on then off three times tells me the codes there are none

#1. Change the fuel filter first.

#2. Ask a trusted private mechanic to do an inexpensive fuel pressure test on the fuel rail pressure fitting beside the fuel injector nozzles. The fuel filter must be clean to get an accurate fuel pressure reading.

#3. Remove and clean the crankshaft position sensor which regulates 12 volt impulses to the ignition coils. Inexpensive also.

#3. Remove and clean the camshaft position sensor. Regulates high-speed and low RPM cam timing. Inexpensive.

#4. Remove and clean the idle air control valve. Inexpensive.

Please stay away from chain store mechanics.
