Question about 1991 Oldsmobile Cutlass Ciera

Cold start acceleration hesitation

The car starts okay, but when I push the accelerator in park or drive there is a hesitation. It does this for a short while when I start driving it and then it goes away. I replaced all of the injectors a year and a half ago. Any thoughts?

Aside from the fact the early gm cars had computer problems, mostly related to bad grounds, you could have bad plugs, bad plug wires, 1 or more failing coils, a throttle position sensor going bad, or even a fuel pump that's on it's way out. You may even have some water in the fuel tank, but the simplest thing of all is to check the air cleaner to see if it's clogging up. There are tests for most of these issues, but they require some equipment and some written out procedures found on the net to do testing. It's really difficult to pin point the issue without being present, because I may see something you didn't, like a vacuum leak somewhere.

Car gets warm and starts hesitating on acceleration


Hi,
this could be something in the fuel pump. As the cold motor draws more fuel, it may just be just ok for the engine, but after it is warm, it draws less and may "suffocate" it that way. Same goes for air filter, take a peek if it is not ready for replacement. Has this happened suddenly, or has it occurrend during a long perion of time?
