No. Usually this occurs when the car has just been started. But, it has happened after driving a few minutes as well. The car will hesitate when you push the accelerator. The rpm will drop and its stutters, then revs up normally and goes fine. This does occur more often if I am aggressive with the throttle but still occurs when I am easy going on the acceleration. Then, nothing will happen for a few weeks and boom, it happens all over again. The check engine light may or may not come on. Light seems random. And, both engine hesitation and light only occur during the warmer months. Not during the dead of winter. I get the check engine light, on average, once a week.
