No idea what car it is or the year..
It could be that the carb is needing to be cleaned and/or adjusted for fuel/air mixture..
Good plugs & wires is also a good idea..
Could also be a fuel pump or filter issue..
Could also be a vacuum or pvc valve issue..
Several things can cause a hesitation..

While im driving, it seems the car pulls back and when that happens the rpms go up. I step on gas and it doesn't accelerate like it suppose to. Its a 2007 maxima.


When you drive at a steady speed does the vehicle hesitate as if you are letting off the accelerator? Have you been having some strange problems? Could be the main computer--all the diagnostic tools in the world will not identify the PCM (Main computer) as a problem.

I hope this helps.

My car hesitates everytime i step on the gas pedal right after i change gear why?

try running some fuel injection cleaner when you gas up next. Auto parts store has multiple brands...Lucas is good. If that doesn't work inspect/replace spark plugs and go from there. Good Luck

If your car has a carburetter, the problem you describe would be caused by a faulty accelerator pump. There is a special pump built into the carb that sprays a spurt of fuel into the carb throat to prevent that flat spot when you accelerate quickly of change gears etc.
