Accelleration skipping

maybe a map sensor, the large sensor inline with the air tube just aft of the airbox. it could also be a MAP sensor or manifold air pressure sensor. both are respnsible for correlating with the engine computer to control fuel.

Hesitation , skipping,engine cuts out when accelerating

Im having the same issue I believe. I have a 94\' Chevy 1500 and when i accelerate it will jerk like the gas has cut out but it wont stall. It just jerks and slows me down. It only seems to do it when going up a hill. I feel like it could be the fuel pump or possibly some intake gaskets?
