Get the codes read. A good scanner will detect pending codes that have not happened enough to trigger a check engine light. That might give you a cause of the occasional sputtering. Also check for vacuum leaks and the replace the PVC valve if it hasn't been done recently.

the only code i got was an EGR code so they capped it off but that didn't help and the check engine light might stay on 5 mintues

Your EGR valve is failing or has completely failed. You need to replace it.

The egr system is a huge part of the engine and the way it runs.
