Is the car giving you a check engine light? If so you will need to take it to a mechanic to check the codes. Some common causes of hesitation are:

Low fuel pressure - caused by a bad fuel pump or fuel pressure regulator

EGR valve - make sure the EGR valve is working properly. You can test it with a vacuum pump and make sure it holds air. Also you could have a plugged EGR passage.

Good luck and keep me posted. Thanks - Tech101

    The fuel filter is normally located near the gas tank at the rear of the car or towards the front on the passenger side. It is inline with the fuel line and has the shape of a cylinder.

Acceleration hesitation


Depends how long since your last tune up and mileage. I would do a normal oil change, oil filter, air filter and plugs. If she still does it, try checking for a vacuum leak. Start the vehicle and spray "lightly" carb cleaner around your vacuum lines. If you have a leak the engine will increase in idle suddenly. Replace the line or part. AS A LAST resort and pretty rare is the distibutor. They usually run about 75.00 to 110.00...hope this helps.
