Help Throttle Issues- Help

Fred and i both have the same problem.
Engine hesitates sometimes and takes a while to pick up sometimes.
What could this relate to?

Re: Throttle Issues- Help

A bad or bad sparkplugs ? also worth a try, reduce sparkplug gap from recomended whit 0.05-0.1mm.
Air leak ? spray starter gas on hoses and connections and listen to if rev. changes.
Old and sluggish lamda sensor ?

Just some thoughts.

Re: Throttle Issues- Help

Any other symptoms?

Does it rev to the red line freely?
Is the tickover fine?
Does it hesitate at certain rpm?
Have you noticed any change in fuel consumption?
Does it hesitate when engine is cold and hot?
Have you tried disconnecting Maf and taking for a run?
