Hesiates on starting & missing, the gear shift for drive there is a light that goes on while driving will not go off without turning off the engine. I ran the codes on it sometime ago and it said


Check your fuel pressure. Sometimes your fuel pump will give to much or to little fuel to the engine. Changing fuel pressure regulator will solve the problem. What is your RPM needle doing is it pulsating or going up or down...Please let me know so we can solve the problem.

99 tahoe 141000 miles, owned since 2000 no problems ever, last month started bad hesitation first drive of the day only, between 30-50 mph goes but acts like not getting fuel?? after about 10 miles it


Most common problems with hesitation is low fuel pressure or a faulty throttle position sensor.
Was the TPS and the fuel filter on that list of stuff replaced ?

Hesitation in engine


Actually there are two kinds of engine hesitation.One is from fuel then two is the air .The mechanic should check on the fuel filter .look if the fuel that is going to the fuel pump is dirty or worn out . check the fuel filter then look if it is dirty and needed to be replace or change.Then the second is that the air filter it should also be check if dirty then replace it so that no dirt will go to the engine . if these problems are not solved then the cylinder will be having a problem that will cause the engine to hesitate.And always check the fuel you use to place to the fuel thank if dirty or diluted just to be sure.

I have a 1995 maxima with hickup or hesitation


It sounds like a clogged catalytic converter. If you can unbolt it; try unbolted it and see how it runs. Also try unplugging the sparkplug wire one at a time and see if the shaking gets worse or stays the same. When you pull a spark plug wire and the car stops shaking then that cylinder isn't firing. Watch out though, you'll get a nasty shock if you do it without insulated pliers. It could be a stuck valve or bad ignition.

No power when going up hill


when was the last time the truck had a tune up? plugs wires air filter fuel filter and if it has over 40,000 miles a new drivebelt put some STP gas treatment in the gas tank and if this helps the problem replace the fuel filter; the fuel pump is in the gas tank and the fuel filter is underneath the truck normally on the driverside just under the door or the passanger side just in front of the rear tire in the frame

I had a problem with the brakes on my 2005 GMC that significantly increased the fuel consumption. The calipers for the disk brakes were not moving freely and were causing the brake pad on one side to always contact the rotor. This problem is easily found by checking for heated brakes after a short drive or by coasting to a stop to see if the truck rolls easily without power.
