96 chevy cavalier engine hesitates on hills when giving it the gas replaced fuel filter 2.3 l electronic fuel injection


hesitation under excell can be spark related. check your spark plugs. they may be worn, with exsessive gap.
I always recomend AC delco plugs for GM engines. stay away from Bosch plugs.
Another thing to consider is fuel quality.
Try a different brand.
I have had lots of problems with Arco fuel.

My 2004 ford freestar van is hesitating going down the road. i change the egr valve . could it be the fuel filter


most likely not the fuel filter- try plugs and wires... could be a number of things, if the vehicle runs fine while in park and doesnt hesitate, most likely is sprk plugs and wires or a transmission problem...

Hesitates on acceleration


Does the car always hesitate during acceleration? If it ALWAYS struggles when it starts or ALWAYS hesitates on acceleration then I would say the issue is fuel delivery. If the problems are more intermittent and come-and-go then it could be an electrical issue.

I would start by changing the fuel filter. Changing plugs, wires, cap, and rotor are all good things to do as your budget will allow. I doubt you will have to change your injectors.

If you end up replacing any rubber fuel line, be sure to use the high-pressure stuff made for use on fuel injected cars.

I hope this helps! -Nick

2004 dodge caravan 2.4 Hesitates during Acceleration and at idele


You should definitely replace the fuel filter though this probably won't fix your hesitation. It wouldn't hurt to replace the spark plugs this is usually the culprit on these engine. I have the same engine in a '99 caravan and found the for some reason the spark plugs on cylinder 3 and 4 loosen up after one year and cause a misfire between 45 and 50 mph under load (when mildly accelerating).

Acceleration hesitation


Depends how long since your last tune up and mileage. I would do a normal oil change, oil filter, air filter and plugs. If she still does it, try checking for a vacuum leak. Start the vehicle and spray "lightly" carb cleaner around your vacuum lines. If you have a leak the engine will increase in idle suddenly. Replace the line or part. AS A LAST resort and pretty rare is the distibutor. They usually run about 75.00 to 110.00...hope this helps.
