Hello and welcome! My name isCustomerand I can assist you with your question.

I am confident we can resolve your problem together provided you stick with me and run the necessary tests.

I am also going to do my best to direct you with the fastest, easiest and most common things to check first to make this as simple as possibly for both of us. I just ask that you provide me with the all of the correct information up front and with the most accurate tests results as we move on so that I can point you in the right direction. I would also appreciate a positive rating from you in return for sharing my time and knowledge and expeirence with you in a timely mannner. Even if you rate my answer after the first few replies, we can still continue our conversation at no further cost to you. With that being said, lets get started.

Can I start by getting your VIN? Thank you!

Hello and sorry for the delay! The most common cause for this hesitation is bad tune up parts (spark plugs and ignition coils), bad tune up parts and or a bad/lazy oxygen sensor. These go bad all of the time. Another thing you can check is the EGR valve and system by disabling the EGR valve and taking the vehicle for a spin to see if the problem is no longer present. If not, I would suspect a bad EGR or plugged EGR passages. If the problem persists, then it is not related to the EGR system. Another I would recommend to check is the fuel pressure as it may be low under certain "load conditions". I hope this helps! Please let me know if you have any further questions!
