WHAT CAN CAUSE A HESITATION? TECHS CANT FIND IT

2006 Honda Civic • 89 miles

The car hesitates when the gas pedal is pressed.
for example if I down shift to go into a highway when I get back on the gas, the car hesitates for a second and then it gains power again.

if I am in a hill going up, and I hold the gas down the car will have no power, it keeps going but with a 40% of the power.

the hesitation is highly noticeable in 2nd, 3rd, and 4th.

another example is when I try to beat the yellow light. And I hit the gas (with out shifting down)there is a hesitation as well.

I hope you guys can help me, the honda techs here in West New York, NJ are very bad.

I would have the cat converter check for being clogged.

If I release the gas pedal, and get back on it. The loss of power goes away (when going uphill)

Also, when idling if I hit the gas hard, I hear a "pssst" noise right before the RPMs go up.

Roy, thanks a lot for the first response, can you please see the last addition that I made?

If you do not have any trouble codes, then you need to read the live data to understand if anything is not functioning correctly. A bad O2 sensor can cause such symptoms. They might not throw codes but the working voltage could be at the extremes of the range.

I can record anything, can you advise on what I should record and what the values should be. (Estimated values)
Thanks a lot,

Get the freeze frame data and post them here.

O2 sensor, TPS, etc.

I looked for freeze frame data, but. The result was: no frames logged

I ran a test and got this though: ehicle Manufacturer: Honda Vehicle Calibration ID: 37805-RNA-A090 U

After deleting those that I think are irrelevant as your scan tools might not be fully compatible with the vehicle and is picking up unrelevant data, there were mention of Bank 4 Sensor 4.

----MID: $01 TID: $87 - O2 Bank 1 Sensor 1 Test incomplete or dependant test failed

This is the only one that might mean something.

Generally the data does not show any iregularities so our attention should be going somewhere else.

Have you tested the fuel pressure?
Test the TPS performance.
