2002 regal makes clicking noise and hesitates when trying to accelerate.

Asked by Sep 16, 2015 at 06:12 AM about the 2002 Buick Regal LS

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

2002 Buick Regal with 50,000 miles hesitates with acceleration and if more gas
is applied, makes a clicking sound like playing cards in a bicycle spoke. If I
slowly accelerate, it picks up speed without making a sound but takes along
time, especially if on an incline.

Might be an exhaust leak.
