Help! hesitating when hit gas normally

idk what's going on but sometimes when i hit my gas after i switch every gear the car like jolts and hesitates for like a quick second and goes... if hit the gas slowly it runs fine but sometimes this doesnt happen at all and the car runs fine like it has its moments.. i have no idea what it is so i just put injector cleaner on my gas tank hope it helps.. any ideas? maybe my baby is having her period.

I'm having a similar problem. Maybe it's a clogged fuel filter? I haven't replaced mine yet so I don't know if mine is the same problem. When was the last time you changed the fuel filter? Manual says 4 years or 60K (whichever comes first).

Could be
- egr related (should throw a cel, but don't know if it throws a cel for clogged egr on 4th gens)
- ignition (dissy, sparkies etc)
- exhaust (clogged cat)

And, as I already said could be fuel system related as well.
