MAP SENSOR will do this exact thing.... Some vehiles you have to clear the codes and allow the vehicle to RELEARN...

TPS (Throttle Position Sensor) that is failing will also do this same thing

2001 Subaru Forester hesitates on acceleration after it has been warmed up.

Might be a spark plug wire, or spark plug. Fuel filter may cause this too. May want to change that if it has not been done in a while and your air filter. To check the wires, try to look under the hood in a really dark spot to see if any sparks are grounding out anywhere. Have someone put the car in gear while you look under the hood and keep their foot on the brake, that way you can simulate a load on the engine. The fuel filter may work ok until you go up a hill or equivalent. I assume you mean hesitation and not some kind of slippage of the transmission if it is an automatic. take care, good luck

Rattling sound when accelerating on 2007 Forester

On mine, I got under there and there are rocks rattling in the heat shield. There are factory made holes in it, and the rocks sit in there like eggs in a carton and rattle when the engine hits a certain vibration frequency which is basically when it is at a stop light or idling. The repair shop wanted to charge to cut them off but I think I am going to drill bigger holes so the rocks fall out, as they are pretty tiny.
