This problem is identical to the one experienced by my 03 Protege LX. Twice had the EGR valve replaced after sputtering and check engine light. Then the 3rd time was sputtering but no check engine light, Had the garage change the EGR valve to a different type (Part # FSY1-18-W00 if you google that). Essentially it now has coolant tubes attached to it. Since the change, the car has been rock solid.
