---Hesitation issues?---

I'm a little curious. When I first crank my car up I get a little bit of hesitation in first and second gear, like it's not getting enough fuel and doesn't want to go, the engines struggling (even when warm). After I give it a little more gas, it smooths right out, and it usually doesn't happen, untill I shut the car back off again.

I've been suffering a major power loss problem for a long time know, and I'm curious if the tps might be a culprit.

Full tune up, and the idles fine. I've also checked the plugs, and they all seem to be burning fine.

Any takers?

Thanks man

Check your fuel pressure. Might be a TPS issue but should throw a code if its way off. Really sounds like a fuel issue tho.

Re: ---Hesitation issues?---

Thanks for the reply man. This is going to sound like a noob question, but how would I go about doing that. I'm sure there's a guage right? Is it something that I might be able to borrow from a local auto parts store, or would I need to purchase it?

I forgot exactly what the thread size is but on the timing belt side of the fuel rail there is a test port. Just attach a gauge there and test it with the car running.
