Smile 1988 - 300se hesitation

When starting to accelerate car hesitates big time until you reach 30 mph. After that , it accelerates as normal . Doesnt matter if car is warm or cold , car hesitates even worse when load is on motor , A/C is on , or climbing a hill .

I've heard it may be an oxygen sensor ? Dirty injectors (have cleaned twice with Tecron - no luck ) , or cap & rotor ??

Any further ideas as how to proceed in diagnosis ?

If it is not accompanied by a skip I'd change the plugs and check the base CO for starters.

Sounds like you may not be getting any enrichment from your airflow meter pot. This probably means it is being ignored - limp mode. I would check connections, then the EHA current, and go from there.
