It should show up with a P code as it misfires. If it doesn't, check the engine temperature sensor and O2 sensor.

Kia optima hesitant acceleration


could be spark plugs, dirty fuel filter, air filter, Mass Air Flow Sensor. bad spark plug wires. Dirty throttle body or injectors. I would start with the cheapest and work my way to the more expensive things if it doesn't improve.

It been hesitating and yes i've ran out of gas a few times


It could be a lot of different things. It could need a good tune up. A fuel filter. Or it could be a little more involved like the fuel pump. You said that you have ran it out of gas a few times, believe it or not but the fuel pump gets cooled off by the gas in your gas tank. If running out of gas is a common occurrence for you the pump could have gotten too hot overheated and now is showing signs of failure. The first thing I would do is check the spark plugs and possibly replace them. That is going to be the cheapest route. If not then it could get more involved. Good luck!

Fuel problem


first i would cover the basics. change the fuel filter, next change the spark plugs, careful this car takes special spark plugs. probably have to get from toyota. next clean the throttle body, pull air nozzle off and open the butterfly so you can spray throttle body cleaner in their and clean with toothbrush. also dont be alarmed after cleaning the throttle body and changing the fuel filter it will be hard starting, hold the gas pedal half way.

Perfect Idle, no Codes, but stepping on gas causes hesitation


i would try cleaning mass air sensor, its mounted in air duct between air filter and throttle body, they sell the cleaner at auto parts stores, also as stated bofore make sure the intake pipe clamps are tight and it's not cracked, if that doen't fix it i would investigate a fuel pressure problem either a weak pump or problem with regulator
