Default 2008 Aura rough idle @ stop light and accelerating

Hello, I have a 2008 Saturn Aura with about 91,800 on it. Lately it has been acting up. There is no engine light on or anything however, when I am idling like at a stop light or something there is a rough idle and the RPMs jump from 1500 to about 1800-1900. Also when I am taking off from a dead stop like at a stop light, my car "sputters" or "misses (in a way)" until I get to about 40-45MPH then it is fine! It doesnt do this everytime, just randomly. I am not sure what is wrong with it I have researched and came across bad/clogged fuel filter, dirty throttle body (which I cleaned, no difference) or the ECT sensor... Any one have any ideas or has this happened before??? Please help!!!!!
Side note.... I replaced the crank sensor in it because thats what someone said it was and it still is having these problems.... I am in desperate need for help!

I use to have this issue. I replaced the spark plugs and wire set. Seemed to solve the problem.

No I have not. I haven't drove it lately. I've been working a lot and haven't had time that's why I haven't drove it either lol, I do have the spark plugs they've been sitting in the glove box! Just need to find time. Hopefully this week. Thank you guys for input I really appreciate it!
