Our 2006 escalade has a hesitation at times after you stop

Customer Question

our 2006 escalade has a hesitation at times after you stop at a stop sign and take off. It is almost as tho your foot slips off the excellerator and it is not getting fuel. This does not happen every time. What could be causing this problem?
JA: Has the vehicle turned into a gas hog? And how does it start -- same as usual?
Customer: No not a gas hod. it starts fine as usual
JA: Are you fixing your Escalade yourself? What have you tried so far?
Customer: I don't know what to do to fix it. I ran some injection cleaner through it and it may have helped a little but has not completely fixed it.
JA: Anything else you want the mechanic to know before I connect you?
Customer: I can't think of anything else that would pertain to this issue.

any check engine light on ?

has been tuned up ?

what is the mileage ?

if you ran some fuel injector and you felt it is getting better , look into a fuel pressure check

you need to see 60 psi or higher on the fuel pump

MAF sensor and crank shaft sensors are common failure , but I will be guessing , can you have it scanned and post the codes back here for me .

Please let me know

Thank You
