2005 F-150 XLT 5.4: Hesitation when hard accelerating.

Asked by Sep 14, 2016 at 02:50 PM about the 2005 Ford F-150 XLT SuperCab 4WD

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

When I accelerate hard, for example getting on the highway and giving it gas hard, it hesitates to go then it will go and hesitate again. It does this about 3-4 times and then goes without an issue. A buddy of mine suggested it may be clogged injectors. I tried a fuel system cleaner and high grade gas for a tank, but no diffenerce. Any suggestions?
