Hi there. It is possible that you could have a bad camshaft or crankshaft position sensor. These sensors keep track of the timing of the engine and send signals to the vehicles PCM. If one of these sensors fails, the PCM will not know what the location of the engines major rotating parts are and therefore will go into the stutter mode. I would recommend having these sensors inspected by a qualified professional to diagnose the hesitating issue.
