Check fuel pressure. Air filter could be really clogged, usually they will collapse first. Then check for exhaust pressure out of the tail pipe. Little pressure or it's really hot. The catalytic converter/s are plugged up.

Stalling hesitation

I've seen a lot on vehicles with stopped up catalytic converters, will run smooth at idle but will barely move when put in gear to go. To check without a shop fee try drilling a hole the exhaust pipe in front of the converter then try to dive if it runs smoother in gear you know its a converter problem

Usually it's the O2 sensor, but the fuel regulator could be stuck in the high output setting for heavy demand. Or the computer could be acting up. if you can, take it to the dealership, and have them test the computer, and the fuel regulator.

You may have too much back pressure or a blockage in the exhaust system. Have your convertor checked especially if over 100,000 kms, 60,000 miles. Good luck!

Hesitation at 40mph and 50 mph.

A pop and hesitation is likely a backfire. The hesitation around 40 and 50 would be in keeping with that theory. There are several reasons you might be getting backfires and hesitation. If your ECM is adjusting the engine to run too rich this could happen. Misfiring might be occuring. Timing could be out. But one of the most likely is a restricted exhaust, likely due to a plugged, damaged or worn out catalytic converter. In some cases the converter may be bad enough to be giving you some performance problems, but not yet quite bad enough to signal an error. A vacuum test can help confirm whether this is exhaust related.

2002 Impala 3.8l v6 major hesitation

Have someone do a back pressure test on you catalytic converter. I had the same problem and it turned out that my converter was almost completely plugged. I was also getting a check engine light indicating a misfire on cylinder 4. Once the converter was replaced, the problems went away.
