Q: Q: Car hesitating while accelerating

asked by on

So, I just purchased a vehicle. Runs seemingly fine but have noticed a bit of a lag when accelerating while I'm already moving at a low speed (like going through a yield sign). When I put a little pressure on the gas it hesitates then surges a bit. From a stop the car accelerates normal. Any ideas? Thank
