possible tune-up

Any time I step on the gas the car hesitates. What can I do to stop this? I am not good with engine work, but am always willing to learn.

try running the vehicle with the hood open in the dark so that you can see the plug wires to check for sparks to ground, then try misting the wires with a spray bottle to see if that causes any sparks to ground, if so replace wires and probably spark plugs. then recheck for a hesitation. yours is fuel injected so any hesitation is usually going to be related to something like a bad throttle position sensor. you would need a digital volt om meter to check that out.
