This can be caused by any number of problems, what must be done 1st is have the computer control module checked for fault codes, if nothing shows up there then check the fuel pressure.

    What if you still have good fuel pressure, and it still hessitates when giving gas?

    Possible low fuel pressure or defective Mass Airflow Sensor (MAF) or TPS (Throttle Position Sensor)
