i have to press the gas petal down all the way to start it, then idle it a little bit. it hesitates at take offs. if it doesn’t start the first time, it takes a while to get it started again. sometimes i have to let it set for an hour or so. when it starts it chokes and spudders till it finally gets going, that’s with the gas petal down all the way. i changed the spark plugs, fuel filter, and idle air control valve. any ideas?

  1. First off if the check engine light is on, please post the codes as this will help narrow the issue. Most likely problem would be the pcv hose collapsed and leaking.

    another possibility that comes to mind would be a Engine Temperature Sensor.
