Hello, my name is ***** ***** I am a professional here at Just Answer. I have noticed that your question was not getting a response and thought I would see if you still need help with this.I apologize for the delay and I hope I can still assist you with this here.

One common cause for the type of hesitation can be caused by a dirty MAF (mass air flow) sensor and in some cases you can clean it with some MAF cleaner and resolve the problem. Before you clean it, remove the negative battery cable and then clean the sensor real well and see if this will resolve the problem you are having.
