Default engine hesitation

I have a 96 Accent GT 5spd. that gets engine hesitation off and on some days its fine
other days it will just seem to lose power for a few seconds when accelerating.
engine light is not on and mechanic ckecked engine for codes but none showed.
my car has 95,000km on it and its been doing this for about a year now. Anybody
have the same trouble? and what did you do to fix it?
thanks.

Yeah I have the same problem, sometimes like when its colder outside it doesn't seem to do it as much. I don't know if this has anything to do with it or not. I haven't heard of anything as a fix but I'm sure someone will have an answer.

Do you hear any kind of noises when this happens or does the engine rev? Does the engine just die for a few seconds? A little bit more info would be nice

No there is no noise when this happens just a total loss of power for a few seconds.
Its not like the clutch is slipping its more like the fuel supply or spark is gone.
it seems to happen more at low rpm and when the car is almost up to full temp.
And yes it does not seem to be as severe with the cold weather.
When this happens its always when you are accerating.
Some people seem to think its the tps sensor or the idle speed controller.
The car has always idled o.k. but lately the idle seems abit rougher. not as steady
as it used to be. but no stalling. Plugs and wires did not help. changed coolant temp
sensor all did nothing air filter was changed also. I tryed running the car with the
air intake sensor disconnected and this seemed to change to time when this would
happen the engine had to be hotter. Also my fuel economy just keeps going down
could it just be fuel filter? Well if i can't figure this out it will be going in to the dealer. Just trying to save a few dollars.
Thanks again.

I have a 2000 Accent GL and I've noticed a correlation between humidity and engine hesitation. When I first begin driving on a humid day the engine seems to stall before actually moving. Usually after the engine warms up the hesitation goes away. I've also noticed my Accent really struggles when I have a full load of passengers. It's amazing what three extra adults will do to a car's acceleration.

my 2000 GL does the same thing, no matter what temp its at....happens sumdays, other days it doesnt..but it only happens in 1st (rarely 2nd) when im taking off..it kinda has no power..then does..then doesnt..then does..... (almost bunny hopping off the start) not only is this annoying but emabarrasing as well :embarrassed:

Also ive started to notice my fuel tank indicator jumps from half full to full... and it doesnt always coinside with the lose of power so i dont think its majorly connected sumhow.... any suggestions?? :nervous:

I work for a driving school that has several excels/accents, and one of the cars, a 95 Excel (accent in US) has the problem you describe- and the owners mechanic can't find the problem.....my car is a month older-hope it doesn't start doing it! His is manual, mine automatic...:rambo:

If you already changed the plugz and wirez then its not the ignition....gotta be the fuel line...i would check the fuel injectors(one faulty injector can make a big difference...and sometimes that check engine light comes on to late), fuel filter, maybe even the fuel line itself....i would run a test.....:smoking:

Only thing I can think of that possible a mechanic wouldn't see or check would be A.) dirty fuel injectors or B.) clogged fuel filter. The reason your seeing power loss is because occasionally not enough fuel is making it to the plugs, but most of the time it is. It would also explain why it happens at random internvals regardless of temp. My two cents. If these aren't the problem then...I dunno possibly the ECU?
