Start by checking for a vacum leak. Get a can of gumout, and spray a little on the vacum line connections and the lines themselves around the
manifold. Do this in steps, because when the gumout hits a leak, the engine will rev up a little. Be sure not
to spray any in the air intake as the eng. will rev like
you've found a leak. If you get the gumout at one of the parts chain stores autozone etc. Ask them to
check your car for dtc codes. They will scan it free.
And if you have stored codes, it gives you more options if you don't have a vacum leak.
Hopa this helps. Good luck.

Lite hesitation when at cruse speed 1997 lincoln conti.


Have you tried a fuel system clean up. Has it got a barb or injection? I would, as a first step, change the fuel filter and add some injector cleaner. Possibly the fuel system clean might overcome the issue. Think about having a service carried out, might be tuning related,
If the hesitation were a fully blown flat spot that could not be remedied I would suggest a compression test to ascertain the condition of the bores/pistons. but this does not appear to be necessary at this point.

When i press on the gas peddle the car hesitates and jerks. If I do it slowly it doesn't do this... But, you can't press hard on the gas peddle or it will hesitate.


I think your car is runing Lean and i would say check the Mass air flow sensor and the fuel system because your car seems like its sucks more air then fuel. Do you have any check engine light on ?

When goin up on hills,when u push the gas sometimes the car seems tto stutter like if it needs gas but i think it needs fuel system cleaning or spark plugs


You seems to be right in judging the fault as it seems that the fuel system is faulty while the car is in an inclination.
So start from your tank, the fuel pump, the filter , the delivery and spark plugs.
Have the entire system cleaned up, do the much needed service for the mileage done..

When I start my car, there is a sound like the car is going to stall, but it doesn't. The car seems to hesitate and after a ****, it is fine. Could there be something wrong with my fuel injector?


fuel filter may need replacement, but you're on the right trail. try adding fuel injector cleaner to your fuel @ run for 20miles or so, give it a chance to run through the fuel system before you replace that injector. it usually does the trick.

Strong fuel smell


You more than probably have a gas leak somewhere in the fuel system. If you can smell gasoline, it is leaking somewhere. The lines run along the frame to the engine. The leak might be hard to see or hidden (on top of the fuel tank).

The leak is robbing fuel pressure from the engine, causing it to idle rough, so is probably on the pressure side of the system.

(Most fuel systems, except for "returnless" systems with Pulse width modulated fuel pumps (not very common), have a pressure line and a return line to the tank.

Hesitation


Especially if the base gasket at the carb is also leaking.
