There are several things that can cause your car to spotter when you step lightly on the gas pedal. The most common cause is a lack of fuel. A dirty air filter also can cause the problem.

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

Driving a car is basically turning on the ignition and stepping on the gas pedal.

A 1990 Cutlass Ciera might hesitate and sputter when the gas pedal is depressed because of water in the fuel or because of damaged or dirty fuel injectors. You might also have an issue with the wiring or the distributor.
