Hesitation when I goose it

Asked by Sep 05, 2015 at 11:59 PM about the 1991 Mitsubishi Mighty Max Pickup 2 Dr STD Standard Cab SB

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

Easy on the gas she will pick up speed pretty smoothly. Step on it
though and she will fall on her face. Have decarbonized the engine
through the intake. New fuel pump. Both the TPS & MAF sensors
check OK cleaned the MAF with CRC mas air flow cleaner felt
somewhat better but still hesitates under load.

Is the base timing correct and is the ECM advancing the spark properly?

Does this beast have a carburetor? If so, it might be getting old- there is a feature which allows for smooth transition from idle-
