View Full Version : Hesitation??

Searched this topic and couldn't find anything-for n/a motors anyway. Well here goes.

While driving my 90, in any gear, it will hesitate. And by that i mean that under acceleration you can actually feel the car hesitate, while my foot is on the gas. It doesn't do it all the time, but is getting more frequent.

For instance. Leaving from a red light the car will hesitate in first, and ill shift the to 2nd. It will hesitate for around 3 seconds and then goes away. Same thing if i shift into 3rd etc.

So whats causing this? o2 sensor? spark plugs? Wires?

I have the same thing. From what I researched it could be like a dozen things, so it looks like I am going to live with it. Spark plug wires, dirty injectors, distributor, coils, spark plug, basically any ignition component, and it could also be the oil that leaks in the spark plug cylinder.

Tune up time! :)

It's a very good chance you just need the basics - plugs, wires, cap, rotor.

If after a good tune up the problem persists, have it checked out. I just took mine in and I had a bent valve. That is the more serious end though so definately look into the cheap stuff first.
