Hesitation at 3000rpm, unsmooth acceleration
Hey All, Long time listener, first time poster.
So my 2001 SL had hesitation during accelerations and an intermittent "bump" kind of feeling at around 3000RPM. The car didn't accelerate smoothly. It felt like the engine was misfiring, but it threw no codes. No "check engine" light.
To make a long story short, Plugs and wires. It had been close to 100k since I had changed the old Champions. (Shame on me for waiting so long... I know). Rockauto, new plugs (AC Delco/copper), new wires. Problem solved, runs smooth as silk.
Thank you to all who have posted in the past. I am a frequent lurker on this site, it has saved me thousands of dollars over the years. (Shout out to Richpin if he ever visits these boards). (Intake Gasket, Water Pump, Starter, Oxy and temp sensors, EGR valve, engine mounts among other things.) 250,000 kms and still purring like a kitten, ridiculously cheap car to own if you keep on top of things and have tools and some patience.
