Hi there. The symptoms that your vehicle is having sounds like the fuel pump relay is on the fritz. The relay may be getting too hot and turning off to cool down then it turns back on. This would explain the abnormal hesitation and then the engine running fine with no misfires. I recommend replacing the fuel pump relay. If you need further assistance with your vehicle hesitating sometimes, then seek out a professional, such as one from Your Mechanic, to help you.
