Default 0-25mph and 55-65mph problems

for some reason during these periods of acceleration....say im at a light and im waiting to get on the highway...well when i accel off the line it sputters till about 25mph...then smoothes out...then say im not accelerating and im goin about 60mph it sputters until i accel out of that range....does anyone know what the problem is??...they say i have a messed up knock sensor...cud that be it??

Who says that it-s a sensor and how was that diagnosed? Does the sputter also make the wheels chirp coming off of a red light?
