[DML] Re: Acceleration issue

I think what you are describing happened with my car.  Fairly 
regularly, the first time I really "gave it gas," it would 
hesitate.  It never stalled, but there was definitely an issue with 
power.  After that first hesitation, it would be fine the rest of 
the trip. This was all within the first minute of driving.

Turned out I had a severely clogged air filter.  As a new owner, I 
hadn't checked it. Once I changed the filter, the problem virtually 
disappeared. I can't recall the last time I noticed this hesitation 
and the car has had incredibly better performance ever since.

Just a thought... if it's your problem, it's cheap and easy to fix.  
Depending on your preferences, filters are readily available through 
the vendors, even through NAPA stores.
