My car skips/jumps as I accerelate
I have a 2011 Ford Fusion with 86K miles. I have noticed that when I am going between 5-10 mph it will almost skip a beat. As soon as I accelerate even more, it seems okay. Also, if I'm stuck in traffic and rolling along at 5-10 mph it will do it when I put my foot on the gas. It shifts well when going into higher speeds, I doesn't slip out of gear and it doesn't make any sounds, so I don't think its the transmission, but I honestly don't know. Could it be a fuel pump issue?
Check air filter clean throttle body replace fuel filter if have not done so in a while add Lucas Fuel Injector Cleaner to gas tank.
I have the same issue unfortunately if you have a 4 cylinder engine like me your going to get that slight hesitation on takeoff! It's a drawback of having the 4 cylinder. Sorry no fix available and there is no mechanical problems.
