Hi. When was the last time a tune up was performed? Or the plugs and fuel filter at least checked?

Customer: replied 11 months ago.
Car has 175k, plugs changed at just over 100k. Fuel filter has not been touched. I am the 1st owner so I now the complete history.

THe plugs are due for another replacement, or at least check and set the gap. THe fuel filter is part of the fuel pump module and the pump needs to come out to replace that.

I dont think the crank sensor could have anything to do with the sputtering.
