Maybe. Try checking for trouble codes. Sputtering could be fuel pump, dirty filter, dirty injectors. If you plan to keep it, give it a tune up (new plugs/wires), clean all the filters and sensors (maf/map) TPS, check/clean PCV & EGR. When you have the plugs out check their condition for carbon buildup.
