Hey there, do any lights pop on the dash even temporarily when it happens?
Customer: replied 2 years ago.

No- the light displaying stop never shows, even when turning the key to ignition, Maybe the stop light as been deactivated

Thank you

Expert:  Jake replied 2 years ago.
Yea that is a bit peculiar that you do not get the bulb check when turning the ignition. do you get this hesitation repeatedly or is it one hesitation on acceleration then normal driving?
Customer: replied 2 years ago.

Hi Jake,

The hesitation is more apparent on acceleration



Expert:  Jake replied 2 years ago.
Thanks for clarifying. Generally when you see a hesitation acceleration, we call that a bucking from fuel cut.
This is most likely from a faulty injector that's cutting out.
Pulling engine codes might tell you which cylinder is faulting here.
Once the faulty injector is replaced you have to bleed air from the system at the last injector.
