Question about Cars & Trucks
Could be a number of issues.
1. Fuel filter a clogged fuel filter will cause restriction in the lines and starve a vehicle for fuel causing hesitation.
2. a weak fuel pump if your fuel pump is going sometimes it can not supply the proper fuel and pressure.
3. water in your gas can cause this as well depending on how long you have had this problem especially if it started right after you filled your tank.
4. Spark plugs and wires basically a tune up.
hope this helps some.

i would check your fuel filter and air filter first if they are dirty then i would change them. and if it still does it then it might be one of the sensors on your throtttle body. like your tps sensor or the iac valve or it could be your mas sensor you can also clean these with some throttle body cleaner and mass air flow cleaner that you can pick up at any auto parts store

HI MY NAME IS JUAN:
I HAVE A 93 BUICK SKYLARK CUSTOM
AND I HAD THE SAME HESITATION.
I CHAGED GAS FILTER, AIR FILTER, AND USE SEA FOME IN MY GAS TANK AND USE IT ALSO TO CLEAN THE INTAKE SYSTOM, AND IT HELPED ALOT. TWO MONTHS DOWN THE LINE HADE THE SAME HESITATION AND IT WAS ONE OF THE INISION COIAL PACK WAS NOT GIVING THE ELETRICAL SPARK TO THE PLUG. I CHECK IT BY PULLING THE CABLE OFF THE SPARK PLUG WITH THE CAR RUNNING AND FOUND THE ONE THAT WAS NOT GIVING SPARK. I REPLACED THE PACK FOR THAT CILINDERS PLUG AND THE PROBLEM WAS GONE.
HOPE THIS CAN HELP YOU.

SOURCE: Engine hesitation
sounds like unburned fuel in the catylistic converter suddenly burning the fuel as your car picks up speed [causes the rotten egg smell] your hesitation sounds likley to be [tps sensor] throttle position sensor its a variable resistor which is known to breakdown not a difficult repair and can be tested on a multi meter with a bar graph on it yates210456

TRY REPLACING THE TRANSMISSION FILTER LOCATED INSIDE THE TRANS. THE TRANS PAN MUST BE REMOVED TO ACCESS THE FILTER. A GALLON OF FLUID WILL NEED TO BE REPLACED AS WELL AFTER FILTER HAS BEEN DONE. THIS PROCEDURE WILL HELP THE OIL PUMP IN THE TRANS TO GET MORE FLUID AND HELP IT TO SHIFT GEARS. HOPE THIS HELPS. PLEASE KEEP ME POSTED. THANKS FOR USING FIX-YA AND FOR AN HONEST RATING TOO. BEST OF LUCK.

SOURCE: 4 wheel drive
release the traction control if equipt.check to see if the trac control notification light comes on.if not i would check the transmission or have a trusted mechanic look at it.REMEMBER you dont always have to have a transmission rebuilt sometimes its just a clogged filter.
