Engine hesitation during acceleration can be a result of several factors. One of the most common causes is a dirty or faulty mass airflow sensor, which measures the amount of air entering the engine to determine how much fuel is needed for optimal performance.
Another possible cause is a problem with the fuel system. If your fuel pump is not delivering the correct amount of fuel or if your fuel injectors are clogged, this could lead to hesitation during acceleration.
Lastly, it could be due to issues with your spark plugs or ignition coils. If these parts are worn out or damaged, they can’t ignite the fuel in the cylinders properly, resulting in hesitation.
Given the complexities involved, I’d recommend getting your truck checked by a professional mechanic. They can diagnose and fix the problem accurately.
Stay safe on the roads, Mike!
