asked by on

the car hesitate when taking off it does it worst if the air if on

My car has 155000 miles.
My car has an automatic transmission.

You should first scan the computer to see if there are any stored codes that may indicate the cause of the hesitation. If no codes are present then you should have the throttle body cleaned and the injectors cleaned out. Also if you have not had a tune up then have the spark plugs replaced.
