Default 05 honda civic 1.7L engine sputters?

It started a couple weeks ago. I checked the OBD 2 codes and i got P0300 P0301 P0303. Everyday the car starts just fine, but once it passes 40 mph the engine starts to shake it kind of feels like it is going to die but it doesn't. So.etimes it does it around 60 mph. The only thing i have done is the oil change and air filter always on time. Some people tell me to replace the spark plugs some say to replace rhe fuel filter, i don't even know if it has an external fuel filter. Any ideas would help me a lot thanks. It is my wife's car she drives slow and never abuses the car. Thanks.

Swap the #1 and #2 coil and #3 and #4 and reset codes. Road test and see if the misfire follows the coils you swapped. So if you get a P0302 and P0304 replace the faulty coils. If misfire codes return the same codes do the same thing with the spark plugs. If no change in codes and your vehicle has over 100K miles you need to adjust the valves when the engine is cold. If you are not familiar with the procedure you will need to take it in to a shop for that. Also if you do have over 100K miles replace the timing belt as well. Good luck to you.
