    I have look all over and cant find it for anything, I took and drove it around the block and had to feather the gas alot and hard to even get it to go, but it would go after a few seconds.

    Where would I start to look for the leak? Is there a big hose or a small hose that would cause this? I used the same intake manifold gasket but it still look good. I dont hear any whisteling anywhere

It sounds like a serious vacuum leak.

    It's best to replace the gasket, if there is just a little tear it will cause a leak. Spray some intake cleaner or carb cleaner around the intake and vacuum hose area to see if there is a change. that's a good way to find a leak. Or a hose could have been left off.

Fuel delivery problem, or bad vacuum leak at gaskets, or vacuum hoses causing terrible fuel-air mixture. You will need a repair manual to be able to read codes and understand the ECU error codes, but it may help you understand the issues.

1999 bmw 316i compact flat spots & hesitation from 3500 RPM

the flat spot is a missing instruction in the CPU program in the ECM. Run the fault codes to check for faulty sensors or have the CPU program reset using the scanner. Loose wires would give a problem all over and not just at particular rpms

My 94 nissan sentra doesn't run smooth over 3000 rpm or if you mash the gas pedal

I have a 2000 Chevy Tahoe that did the same thing. I changed the oil pump, new oil, and head gasket. It now has power and doesn't fall on its face when I step into the throttle hard. Hope this helps.

Have the fault codes read. Replace the faulty units with
genuine one because most aftermarket units are not set for OEM cpu units and are not completely compatible.. Check for mass air flow sensor fault.
