Hesitation in 2nd gear
« on: July 06, 2018, 06:56:10 PM »

I have a 1993 Capri with manual transmission. For some reason in 2nd gear with steady throttle as the revs increase I notice the car hesitates than starts to pull like normal. It's never done this before I think I would of noticed it. Could this be related to a fuel issue such as the injector?? I haven't really noticed it in other gears

Could be fuel, if I were to start checking stuff I'd look at the ignition system first, a lot easier to inspect & could be the culprit.
-Spark plugs
-Plug wires
-Cap/rotor

Could also be a small vaccum leak.
