I'd Say pulleys, sparkplugs, oil, lubrication on your belts, check it all out.

Clean out your MAF (Mass Air Flow sensor). More than likely this will take care of the hesitation. If that doesn't work, tighten your throttle cable, unless you have an '03 because they don't have'em. Hope that helps. thumbsup

Back on topic, you might need your injectors cleaned out as well as you induction system (95% sure). BG induction cleaning should do the trick, at least it worked for me on my 00.
