Question 1997 Ford Ranger

Our Ford Ranger (4 cyl, automatic, 114K miles, 1997) hesitates when starting to "go" from a complete stop. Doesn't hesitate any other time and except for the hesitation it runs great! Dealer diagnostics doesn't show any problems. Dealership said they had to tear down the engine (?) to try and locate the problem! Seems drastic to me since engine runs great other than hesitation. Does anyone have any suggestions?

check the maf sensor at the air cleaner the plastic casing does come apart and there is 2 screws holding the maf sensor on if you remove the two screws and check the two wire filaments for contamination or dirt , you can clean them by spraying off with carb cleaner but do not touch the wire filaments they can break easily.
