Change the plugs and wires.

also check the throttle position sensor or have it tested

It is important to have a well working car while on the road. The lack of fuel getting to the engine would cause hesitation on acceleration,

About a million things. Bad gas, plug wires, plugs, throttle position sensor, timing off, idle air control valve, clogged injectors, or maybe even the coil pack. The easiest to change and probably one of the best bets in the plugs and wires.

Hesitation can be caused by several things: 1. A faulty throttle position sensor might cause hesitation. 2. A faulty MAP or MAF sensor might also cause hesitation. 3. A problem with the engine control module might cause hesitation.

Hesitation means to pause or delay. The opposite would be a lack of hesitation. Words such as boldness, confidence, or enthusiasm can mean the opposite of hesitation.

It would if the battery voltage was lowered enough to cause it not to fire.

This will be caused by either worn wheel bearings or worn outer cv joints on the driveshaft which will eventually give out if not dealt with immediately

bad fuel, shorted mass air sensor, if the car is automatic might be low transmission oil

Lots of things, most of them engine problems ( assuming you your parking brake is not set on and your tires all have air.) The cheapest to fix would be badly adjusted or worn carbuerator and/or spark plugs and spark plug wires - this is what the typical engine tune-up would fix. More serious engine probles such as bad piston rings or warped valves would cause slow acceleration and would require an over-haul.

In this case, acceleration is positive. Negative acceleration would cause the object to slow down (decelerate.)

There are several things that can cause your 1989 Honda Accord to stall on acceleration. The most common cause is a plugged or dirty air filter.

Perhaps an out of balance wheel. If this is the cause it will be worse at a certain speed.

Newton taught everybody that Net Force = Mass * Acceleration. Since we're talking about acceleration, we can rearrange that to be Acceleration = Net Force / Mass. If you want to decrease the acceleration of an object, you would need to decrease the net force applied to it or increase its mass (or both).

I was having the same problem with my daughter's escort. I replaced the cam position sensor and the problem stopped. Advanced Auto Parts will check the computer to find out the problem for free.

Then the acceleration would also double.Then the acceleration would also double.Then the acceleration would also double.Then the acceleration would also double.

not necesarily but it definitely will affect the power... if its dirty just change it they don't cost very much
