Is there anything I can tell you? Yeah, use proper grammar and punctuation.
Also, more info would be nice, like more on the hesitation. Is it when you’re accelerating from a stop, when you’re driving in the city, passing someone, just randomly on the highway, or some other time? What’s the engine doing (revving up, bogging down?) Is there a Check Engine Light on?
I think you might have a fuel delivery problem. You might check all the wiring to the fuel pump. I had one with a bare spot once that would kill the pump sometimes, then it would be all right. Of course, it never messed up at a shop. I found it by pure luck.
Some of those hesitation problems while at steady speeds are caused by a bad O2 sensor. If you are at a steady speed and your car slows down and takes a while to respond to the pedal being pushed and then has a great surge of power, you may be in luck.
