I assume you are talking about an automatic trans? If so, it doesn't sound good. Have you serviced trans lately? Sometimes brand new fluid can cause old trans to slip. Auto trans are complicated animals. Don't take it to one of those AAmco type places unless you want to spend a small fortune. The only trustworthy place I know is David Colbath Trans but that is in San Antonio, Texas. Ask your regular mechanic first, someone you trust. Good Luck! I had 2 identical Geos with the same problem. Turned out to be weak fuel pumps. Check your fuel pressure

A couple of different things could cause hesitation in a 1999 Plymouth Breeze including bad spark plugs. There could also be an issue with the fuel filter.

Intermittent hesitation in a car could be caused by many things. The fuel filter, the EFI, and spark plugs might be the cause. A loose wire can also cause this. Newer cars have many plugs and connectors that could have come loose.

Start by checking the EGR system.

A transmission that is sticking would cause a 1997 Plymouth Grand Voyager to die after shifting it into gear. A problem with the ignition system could also cause this.

you are not supposed to drive on the interstate with your highbeam because it blinds the other oncoming vehicles and could cause them to have a devistating accident. you will get pulled over if an officer sees you

You could have a sticky brake shoe or maybe the e-brake is engaged.

Glaciers or moving, shifting and melting constantly. The worst that could happen is if too meltwater was created by the melting glacier it would cause a flood downstream.

My 89 B2200 does this. Its like there is a dead spot in the acceleration. It is because the accelerator pump is leaking.

EGR should turn on Service Engine light on 96 and later. The tube / pipe to the exhaust manifold can also become blocked. EGR could cause rough engine. Many other possibilities.
