It could just need a tune up. By that I mean new spark plugs, wires, distributor cap, rotor, and air filter. I recently had an issue with mine and it ended up being the cam position sensor inside the distributor cap. If you have access to a computer that can read the check engine code, hook that up and see what it says. I believe that Auto Zone and Advanced Auto Parts will read it for. Maybe try those two places. Not sure if that helps, but there you go. This is not a solution just a suggestion to get you started.

Hesitation when your 91 300zx engine is hot?

Is your Check Engine light on? If so, I suggest running the self-diagnostic procedure with your ECU. It might indicate a bad fuel injector, which have a tendency to work sporadically when they are failing. This causes a very noticeable hesitation, especially at cruising speeds. Unfortunately, this would be a costly repair. I hope this isn't your problem, though it's happened to my 1990 N/A on two separate occasions. Runs like a charm again when fixed though.

No, a defective battery will prevent the engine from starting but once it is running the battery will not cause hesitation. the the starter relay is disengaged , and the alternator takes over battery charging via voltage regulator . voltage regulator prevents power surges and prevents voltage fluctuation.
