Engine "Hesitates" while accellerating
Here's another one-
If you've been following my line of questioning you know I've had a million problems. I've got most of them sorted out but now...
When I accellerate normally, the auto trans will shift and then the engine will hesitate before it starts pulling rev's again. Both shifts- first to second and second to third. If I get on it, it will either run fine or the hesitation will be so bad it will make me fall forward in my seat. When I accellerate slowly, the hesitation isn't there.
What a PITA. Makes me hate to accellerate. I always cringe when the trans shifts, in anticipation the "pause" in power.
I'm in the process of rechecking everything for the 14th time. I have new carb, new tune up, new fuel filter, new fuel pump and have checked for vacuum leaks until I'm stoned on starter fluid.
If you've had this problem, what fixed it? What else should I look at or else what should I look at for the 15th time?
PS My mechanics can't figure it out. My next move is to go into the local Jeep dealer's service department and in a loud voice say "Do you know where I can find a good Jeep mechanic?" so the whole customer lobby can hear me. They can't seem to get anything right lately.
