Acura TSX Sport Wagon 2012 Totally unpredictably in any

Customer Question

Acura TSX Sport Wagon 2012
Totally unpredictably in any regard, there is a hesitation when the accelerator is depressed - the peddle gives no response at all for some two to five seconds. Recently it occured some five times in ten minutes - the worst ever. It is scary, though my wife, who drives the vehicle much more than I do denies ever experience the phenomenon. Acura dealership, without testing it , seemed unaware of such an event.
Thank you.

Hello Mr. Palmer,
Hesitation on acceleration can be caused by various components in a vehicle. The most common issues are:
Faulty accelerator pedal
Low fuel pressure
Vacuum leaks
Faulty MAP (manifold absolute pressure) sensor
Faulty TPS (throttle position sensor)
Faulty MAF (mass air flow) sensor
I would start by allowing a technician to scan your vehicle with a scan tool, once you have the codes, please provide them to me and we will be able to diagnose further.
