Uses excessive amount of gas


run fault codes to find faulty sensors. Then there are dozens of reasons for a thirsty engine so I will list a few
1 tyre size and inflation
2 driver habits
3 blocked exhaust (cat converter faulty)
4ignition timing
5 fuel injectors
6 load in the vehicle
7 load on top of the vehicle
9 speed
10 area= Hilly --city -- stop start
11 if carby check for faulty power valve.
12dragging brakes / pads
13 fuel pressure
14 not engaging OD in automatic box
15 drive line wear
16 wheel alignment
these are just a few and a combination of any will knock considerable mileage off the economy.

Hesitation on acceleration pulls down on hills it is cold blooded and lack of power


My brand new kia sportage 2L purchased in January 2010 gave me problems from the start. First gas tank was squeezed sometime before and vehicle kept running out of gas even though gas gauge showing gas inside. Dealer replaced gas tank. More persistent problem is the vehicle hesitates to accelerate especially if not driven for about three hours or so and when on an incline. Went back to dealer on several occasions but no solution. any ideas?

1999 Silverado 5.3L hesitation ?


Filling it up with 92 octane will not help you so save your money to get other cool **** . If you want to put higher grade gas to the 89 ,but 87 will do the trick. Have you checked your pcv valve and hoses you might have a vaccum leak.

Vehicle hesitates when you accelerate .


make sure you have the correct spark plugs(2)check the throttle position sensor on the car,as most people would be driving about with the throttle on the floor car feels fine.but as in normal driving anyone only uses the first half of the pedal and this is where most wear takes place and sometimes causes hesitation when driving.best of luck.
