I have a 2018 EcoSport SE with the four cylinder engine. I have sputtering when accelerating. Thought it would be the fuel filter and call the dealership to find out the cost of replacing it but they said it is not replaceable, it is in the gas tank. Anyone have any ideas of what could be wrong?

(DEFINE) Sputtering? like a noise specifically... engine feeling sluggish? (@what speeds or rpms? normal load or merging and getting up on a highway? ... is it dying or feels like close to it at idle? hard starts? or sputtering out and dying when start/stop engages at stops? (PLEASE PROVIDE ADDITIONAL CONTEXT)

It is not a noise, it is a feeling. I can usually feel it as I am accelerating between 25mph-45mph. I guess it is like a hesitation in and out. It is during normal load. It has never died out but I have had a rough idle once while stopped at a red light, in drive. There is no check engine light on.
