If you can see on your scanner a contribution test. Put under load while holding brake and accelerating in gear sitting stationary. See if you are any misfired. Also look at fuel trim from left bank and right bank. If one side is showing more rich or lean. than the other suspect worn timing chain. Also can cause hesitation when accelerating

If it leans to the right what does that mean

If short term fuel trim is negative to bank 1 and positive to bank 2. Fuel trim should be pretty close to the same on each side. Of way off from each other. Suspect worn timing chain.
