Unhappy 05 doesnt like to start then sputters bucks NO check engine light on???

I have an '05 with almost 90,000 miles just replaced plugs wires oil 6 mos ago. After the 8th try the car started was fine then 100 ft later was sputtering bucking wouldnt go over 15mph did that for about 300 ft then was fine thankfully was only 2 blocks from home and made it there. BUT the check engine light never came on.. any ideas of what maybe wrong?? It was raining today and 55 degrees fahrenheit (not sure if this affects anything) Filled up with 87 octane on 5 days ago now at 1/8 of a tank. Going to get some midgrade gas and injector cleaner all I can think of. Thanks in advance for any help much appreciated!!
