My 95 Geo did the same thing. It had vibration problems for yrs and my uncles told me it was the harmonic balancer that I should replace it before I messed up my engine. I never did sorry to I should have listened. My car started to putter and stutter until one day it wouldn't couldn't go above 10MPH. I replaced the Catalytic converter and my car wouldn't even go. Took it to a mechanic, the crankshaft pulley was all out of alignment and had messed up the crankshaft rod. It would cost $700 to fix. I didn't have the money so he welded the shaft a little straighter; enough to get the pulley back on but I still have to change it he said that If I kept that pulley on it would continue to mess up. It's been running for about two weeks but It seems to making the noise again. I'm working on getting the pulley and I'll let you know how it goes. I hope that it is the same problem I have that way you know how to fix it.

Both under constant throttle and acceleration I have had hesitation on three separate occasions over 3 week period the rest of the time it runs fine.


Check the front O2 sensor. I had a 99 Jeep that would stutter and seem to lose power while accelerating. No check engine light came on but took it to a shop and had them put it on a computer. Come to find out that the O2 sensor was giving the engine misreads and was telling the engine to take in more fuel. Causing one of the cylinders to misfire.

While traveling engine will hesitate, ****, lose power


Check the least expensive first. Check the fuel filters first and replace them if they are plugged. Most likely it is the fuel pump. A shop can check the fuel pump pressure at the fuel rail on the engine under the hood. If the filter or filters were checked first then a low pressure would indicate that the pump is weak and needs replaced.
