also seems to have a hard time picking up speed when going from 20mph to 30mph to 40 you can feel and hear a hesitation

Hi jesuit,

When's the last time you had a tune-up done? By that, to where they changed the spark plugs and wires?

It would help if you give some more specifics on the car. If I recall, that car came out in both V4 and a V6. Also, about how many miles on the car?

Sounds like you have a vacuum leak. Maybe a blown intake manifold gasket.
