Default Engine stutters

I have an '88 honda accord dx
The engine works fine at the minimum (on neutral) and at high RPM like
2000+ but stutters in the middle (dunno exactly, maybe something like
1200-1300 rpm)

Someone tells me I should replace the spark plugs. Is this correct?


Thanks

When you have a over 100,000 miles on an engine, you start having these
sorts of problems. In some cases, a complete tune-up will solve the
problem. This should involve changing the plugs and adjusting the valves.
I suggest that you have this work done by a mechanic that you trust. He or
she will hook it up to a diagnostic computerized engine tester. If there
are any problems, the mechanic should be able to find them. If you still
have these problems after the tune-up, I suggest that you try high octane
gas--most stations now have two types of high octane gas. Try both of
them. I almost forgot to mention that you should have the mechanic perform
a compression check.

Before you start tearing apart the engine and paying for expensive checks,
replace the fuel filter. An engine that starts losing it at higher RPMs but
is OK at lower speeds is many times being starved for fuel by a clogged
filter.

I'll bet you 2 to 1 it's dirty injectors.
