2003 Mustang v6 skipping on acceleration

I am new to the forum, and am looking for some advice on an acceleration issue. Our mustang recently started skipping a little on acceleration and the check engine light came on. We recently replaced air filter and are dilligent on getting routine oil changes. Also, the fuel filter was replaced about 3 months ago. Could this be a sensor issue or bad fuel?

When the check engine light come on it means the computer has detected a fault. You should take it to a mechanic and have him pul the codes and run a diagnostic. Be aware that just going to autozone and having them pull the codes is not the answer, The fault codes are a starting point for a diagnostic to begin. A lean EGO code does not mean it's bad, just means it detected a lean condition, a proper diagnostic will determine why it was lean... not saying that's what it was but just as an example.
