Intake okay?


Have you tested all your fuel injectors?

No I haven’t but when I changed the spark plugs it seemed like it made it worse

Don’t really know how to test them lol


when running bad unplug each individually and look for a change or lack there-of

This happened to me, the cause of the hesitation is coolent or condinsation dripping into the spark plug holes. You may want to change the intake manifold and/or manifold gasket
