Unhappy knock knock!

I have noticed as of late that I get some hesitation when accelerating. I try and see what the RPM's are at when it happens, but it makes no difference. Up hill, downhill, straightaway.... it don't matter at all. It's not all the time either. Thought it was bad gas, so I filled up at a different place, 3 miles down the road, same thing..... anyone got any idears? Thanks!

I am as mechanically inclined as Hellen Keller is with a Rubik's Cube!

Needs a tune-up (plugs and wires), change the fuel filter, clean the MAF, Seafoam the motor, check/change the air filter...

Just a few thoughts off the top.

These are highly engineered precision vehicles, the first step in diagnosing the problem is to strike the suspected offending part sharply and repeatedly with a blunt object, then re-test.

Plugs and wires were done about 2 years ago, cleaned the MAF a few weeks ago, K&N Air Filter cleaned a month ago. Will try the other stuff soon. Thanks!

Maybe check to be sure your chip is clean and making good contact?? Just noticed that in your sig. It's a long shot, but ya never know.
