Q: Q: Acceleration hesitation

asked by on

I have a 05 mustang gt. It accelerates off the line quickly then just as quick seems to bog down ,build up, then takes off again.

My car has 102000 miles.
My car has an automatic transmission.

There are a number of things that may cause the car to hesitate when accelerating such as low fuel pressure, a dirty or faulty mass air flow sensor, clogged or dirty fuel injectors, a faulty throttle position sensor or potentially a bad fuel pump. I would recommend having a professional from YourMechanic come to your location to diagnose and inspect your vehicle.
