Hesitates when accelerated

Sounds like either a catalytic converter issue,or a fuel pressure issue.

1999 chevy tracker, no power, can't get over 50 mph. Changed fuel filter but no cahnge

I assume you have already checked your air filter and air inlet for clogging. Another simple diagnostic is to sniff the exhaust when the engine is cold. If it smells very dirty or like unburned gasoline, you either have too rich a mixture or ignition problems.

If that is not the issue, verify that your fuel system has adequate pressure, and that it holds pressure when the engine is accelerated. Most fuel injection systems have a Schrader valve somewhere under the hood for this purpose, and for safely releasing fuel pressure for service. You'll need to get a pressure gauge designed for this purpose - many auto parts stores have some sort of tool deposit/loan program so you don't have to buy it outright. Inadequate fuel pressure can be due to a faulty pressure regulator, failing fuel pump, dented or kinked fuel line, or clogged fuel pump inlet screen.
Another possible cause for poor high-speed performance is a slipping torque converter. However, there will be a noticeable difference between engine acceleration and vehicle acceleration in this case (engine RPM will jump, but the car will crawl).

My 99 Chevy Tracker idles fine...very quiet....but when accelerating or running at highway speeds, you can feel the engine doing a slight intermittent jerking thing. It's not very noticeable but you...

1. check your motor mounts, and ****** mounts if rear wheel drive (or 4x4)
2. it could also be your throttle position sensor.
3. it could be as simple as an air filter, so check the air filter and make sure it's "clean" and not plugged.
4. Have a technician or mechanic run a diagnostics on it to detect any electrical components (i.e. throttle position sensor) that may be malfunctioning and need replaced and/or serviced.
Please let me know if you need further assistance.

95 geo tracker starts great when really cold,but hard starting when warm.You have to floor accelerator to get it started.

When was last tune up? Plugs, wires all fluids & filters - especially fuel filter??? I'd start there and run a good fuel system cleaner through it.

reason u replaced the cv the first time ?? problem could be the hub has play or trans/engine mount went bad causing the motor and trans unit to flex under acceleration and braking-- check ur axle lengths by measuring old original to the new ones before swapping out again
