Default 90 Civic stutters after coming down hills

Hi all,

First post here. I have a completely stock 1990 DX hatchback and this is whats going on; After coming down a long grade, hill or mountain it stutters and misses when I get back on the gas. I'm assuming its a fuel related problem, right? The car has 180k on it and has had the fuel filter replaced a couple of years ago. Any ideas?

Thanks in advance!

My '91 does that too. I think it is merely a bug in the ECU software, because otherwise the car runs perfectly.
