My car skips/jumps as I accerelate

Asked by Sep 09, 2015 at 01:12 PM about the 2011 Ford Fusion SE

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

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.
