I think I would check or replace the "Engine Coolant Temperature Sensor". It gives engine temperature signal to the Engine Control Module. I did a search on internet to see if there is a quick test of the "Coolant Sensor" ( replace (Auto Zone SU326 $22.99). Good luck

Testimonial: "I'm thinking you may be right....i probably need to loosen the exhaust pipe bteween the converter and engine to see if that makes a difference....if so then it's most likely the converter, would you agree?"

SOURCE: My 5th ave hesitates to

Lack of power/acceleration on a car of that age could be due to any of a number of things in the engine or transmission, but the most likely culprits are spark plugs, plug wires, fuel filter, and throttle body, Give it a good tuneup if it's due, or take it to either your mechanic of a parts shop, and have them run a scan. Most parts stores will run a scan for free, but it won't be as accurate as what a qualified mechanic/shop can do.

What needs to be done at this point is a DTC (trouble code) from the PCM (engine computer). If the engine light comes on, the PCM stored a fault code and would be the first area to start with a diagnosis.Once this code is obtained, it will give an idea of where a diagnosis should begin. Autozone will hook a code reader to your vehicle and check it for Free. I'm guessing this could be a TPS issue, but to guess and replace parts without pin pointing the actual cause will cost a lot of time, not to mention money for parts that did not need replacing to start with.We need a code from the PCM.

1999 buick lasabre hesitation while driving.

there are really only 2 things that cause this problem most of the time i have seen it, 1st a defective Mass Airflow Sensor, the second is low fuel pressure from a failing pump or obstructed fuel filter do u have a check/service engine soon light on at any time? have u had the system tested for trouble code's? Go to any Kragen or Autozone and ask for a OBD 2 trouble code test, it is free, record any code's that show and post them back here on this same thread.

1995 Diamante overheats on hills.

The heating up as you build revs, to me, indicates a partially oped thermostat. If it hasn't been replaced, I would do so. It's inexpensive and easy enough to do. Make sure you get a gasket with it.
The rattling thing is another matter. Do you think it is the water pump that is rattling? Does it ever drip from under your engine all the time?
Just curious...
Hope this helps... Good luck!
