Q: Car accelerates, hesitates, and then runs normally.

asked by on

When I accelerate from a stop the car runs, but then experiences a brief hesitation before running normally again.

I would have a technician diagnose the acceleration problem. This problem could be caused from either the engine or transmission. They will need to pull codes on the car in order to determine the cause.
