Hesitation when Throttle Applied

I've searched a couple of terms and found some threads, but none applied to me (or at least they didnt seem to)

I'm having a problem with hesitation when throttle is applied, upon lessening up on the throttle, it seems that the car accelerates a bit more. This appears to be evident in 1st through 3rd gear, but seems to taper off in 4th and 5th. I had a similar problem in my Evo, but it turned out to be a loose hose (I/C Piping Hose), didnt know if thats where I should start on this issue, or if this sounds like a different problem. Any help is appreciated.

BTW Stock engine, no mods. I've read that maybe something to do with a bad FPR Diaphram? or faulty injectors (which might make sense of why different gears are affected)?

Re: Hesitation when Throttle Applied

Could also be knock pulling the timing. A bad TPS, or something in the MAS. Some more info would be useful; the easiest way to diagnose this would be to use a datalogger; is there one near you that you could use?

Timing could also get pulled if the knock sensor is bad. Check that.

Re: Hesitation when Throttle Applied

Sorry for the vague description.


Its getting worse now, 1st gear is the main culprit. It seems when I engage into first gear, i have almost NO power. The engine revs, but the car doesnt seem to "catch". (similar to when my Evo blew off an I/C pipe)

I havent checked the TPS yet, but will follow suit and check the knock sensor as well as the MAS.

I dont personally own a datalogger, but will be seeing someone this weekend that has one. Hopefully we will be able to solve this issue.

Also, something else I noticed. I know our cars are known for noisy lifters, but it seems that this problem is evident when the lifters are noisy. When the lifters quiet down, the problem seems to dissipate.

Re: Hesitation when Throttle Applied

Thanks Hertz. Are there any common GVR4 malfunctions that would cause this? (Sensors, etc.)

Re: Hesitation when Throttle Applied

Could be torn fpr diaphragm, fouled plugs, faulty coolant temp sensor. Or it could just be noisy lifters reading as knock and pulling timing.
