asked by on

Hesitation when coming from a stop. Rpms doesnt move very much and then after about 3 seconds it takes off. I've had the O2 sensors replaced, catalytic converter, MAF sensor changed, fuel injectors cleaned, valve cover gasket replaced, transmission fluid changed, new spark plugs. If i turn the car off and back on, the problem goes away. CEL is in because i have a bad Canister Vent Valve Solenoid.

My car has 141000 miles.
My car has an automatic transmission.

The check engine light should be checked again to see if additional codes are stored. The purge canister vent solenoid may be causing the engine to get extra fumes and can cause the hesitation from a start if you are not getting any other codes stored in computer and should replace purge valve if it is leaking.
