98 OBW hesitation @ low rpm
Posted 26 August 2003 - 05:37 PM
I've got new plugs, but not wires (yet). Could it be that easy? The car has 102,000 miles on it and otherwise runs well.
Unrelated: When I bought the car in June, it had severe torque grab. I changed the front and rear differential oil, and also changed the trans fluid. Now, absolutely no grab. It's like a new car.

My symptoms were a hesitation/stumble when starting off. Not all the time, not consistent. Between 600 and 1000 rpm. If you "hit" the throttle, you wouldn't notice anything. It was most apparent when "feathering" the thottle (eg, parking lot, creeping into the garage, that sort of thing). As it got worse, it crept into higher rpms. It got to where I was noticing a slight jerking of the car when loafing thru town (especially if a slight downgrade) at 30 mph with the engine turning over at 14 or 1500 rpm. I have an automatic and over 200k miles on the car now.
