Question about Cars & Trucks
When the service engine soon light a yellow light (Also called the check engine light or engine management light) is turned on this is to alert you to the fact that Powertrain Control Module (computer) has detected a failure somewhere in the systems it controls you may not feel any difference in the way the engine runs, this can be the transmission or the engine or emission system, there are fault codes set in the modules memory for these faults. What needs to happen now is to have the powertrain control module scanned with a special tool called an OBD2 electronic engine control scanner or a OBD2 code reader. Once the code(s) are read then you must perform the diagnostics for each code and make the appropriate repairs based on the findings of the diagnosis that was performed, this is called doing "Pinpoint" testing.

Just trowing some suggestions out there, but, I would check the idle air control valve (solenoid) or the throttle position sensor. If they check out then my last guess would be the map sensor or the vaccuum to the map sensor. Hope I was able to help. Best wishes.

SOURCE: NO POWER WHEN PUSHING GAS PEDAL
Only way to know whats going on is to retrieve the trouble code for the check engine light by using a OBD II diagnostic's tool, it's likely the poor hesitation in the vehicle's acceleration is causing the check engine light to appear, the OBD II diagnostic tool plugs into a data link connector under the driver's side dash, you can buy one at most auto parts store's, or if you don't want to buy one some auto parts store's will do a autoscan of your vehicle at no cost.
