Question about 1998 Pontiac Bonneville

98 pontiac bonneville hesitation and jerking

I have a '98 high mileage Pontiac Bonneville that has lost its acceleration power and is hesitating to the point where it almost jerks. I had a new fuel pump 8 months ago and recently had the fuel injectors cleaned, got a new fuel filter and air filter. It seems to work better if I put in a bottle of carberator/fuel injector cleaner everything I put in gas. Any suggestions on what might be wrong? I don't want to put too much more $$ in this car but can't quite give it up yet since I have already put so much money into it.

When was the last time spark plugs and wires where done? That could be a possible cause, also check the timing through the distrubotor cap.

Hope this helps

Check to make sure you installed the fuel filter in the right direction for flow, if the vehicle was working fine before hand then your problem is located in something you replaced, if not have the fuel pump checked for flow rate it may be starting to get weak and needs to be changed.
