2006 hesitates when accelerating

Asked by Apr 22, 2011 at 10:13 PM about the 2006 Pontiac Torrent AWD

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

Car has 70,000 on it.  Just started hesitating when doing a hard acceleration.  Possibly the transmission?  I have also seen that it could be a cracked spark plug.  I'd appreciate any ideas/suggestions before I start throwing money at problems that don't exist. Also, I put 88.5 octane in it just before this problem started.
