1997 gmc yukon hesitates when taking off acceleration

Have you checked the air & fuel filters? If these were clean try some injector cleaner. If you still have the problem, check the plug wires for chaffing & make sure they are routed clear of any moving parts. If these are fine also, check the distributor cap for cracks as this could lead to misfire and hesitation. If none of this has helped, it may be time to call Mr. GoodWrench!

How do you reset oilchange light on a 2001 yukon xl

Very easy. Turn the key to the on position without starting the truck. Press the accelerator down all the way 3 times and then on the 4th hold down until the display resets. Just that simple.

Hesitation / missing / car shakes

The problem is most likely break down of the spark plug wires. The demands on the spark during acceleration and load destroy the wires as they age. I would start there. Hope this helps.

Check your fuel pressure, could be a faulty fuel pump. Could also be a cracked spark plug wire or ign coil.

Really need to take to a shop or diagnose yourself. As the saying goes, the prob is "Fuel or Fire"
