I have a 2003 2.0 tracker with a severe hesitation, when you push on the accelerator it sounds like it has a cold air intake(you can hear the engine sucking air)you guys have been a great help in the past, if you could help again it would be greatly appreciated. If you leave the accelerator depressed the deep sound will go away and normal power returns, when the hesitation returns it sounds again like the car has no air filter or a cold air intake

Do you
have the same problem?

The check engine light is on, if you put the accelerator 50% down there will be very little power, and it will have that deep throaty sound. Leave the pedal where it is and after a few seconds the sound will go away and full power returns. Sometimes the power is always there
