Question 98 Kia Sephia runs rough

My 98 Kia Sephia 1.8L, 5speed, starts and runs fine while idle. As soon as you begin to accelerate it starts to spit and sputter. Once you finally get through the gears and get it up to speed it smooths out and runs fine. It will run for many miles at 50-65mph, as soon as you stop and try to take off again, forget it. I have changed the fuel filter and spark plugs, and used fuel system cleaner. Nothing is working. Any clues?

Get some MAF (Mass air flow) cleaner from Autozone and clean the sensor. This sensor is located on the plastic intake tube where you air filter is. Try that for starters.
