The only thing i can really do to stop the hesitation and get it moving is to

did /does it have a new fuel filter?


No. You think that will fix it?


I changed the fuel filter today and it's still doing the same thing you think it might be the fuel pump


i would but in a bottle of ZMAZ fuel treatment in it...and then start it and spray carb cleaner around everything under the hood one place at a time and see if the idle changes>vacuum leak
