      First step - have the stored fault codes or check engine light scanned - for free - at any local auto parts store; Advance Auto, Auto Zone, NAPA. Then, post a reply as 'add answer' with the specific code for more assistance. There may be a fault code stored in the OBD memory which may not be displayed as a check engine light.

      Possible Causes of Engine Hesitation or Stumble:

      Dirty fuel injectors (cleaning the injectors often fixes this)
      Dirty air filter (change filter)
      Dirty / clogged fuel filter (change filter)
      Bad MAP (manifold absolute pressure) sensor
      Bad TPS (throttle position) sensor
      Bad or dirty MAF (mass airflow) sensor
      Low fuel pressure (leaky fuel pressure regulator or weak fuel pump)
      Vacuum leaks (intake manifold, vacuum hoses, throttle body, EGR valve)
      Bad gasoline (fuel contaminated with water or too much alcohol)

      Sometimes, what feels like a hesitation is actually ignition misfire rather than lean misfire. The causes of ignition misfire may include:

      Dirty or worn spark plugs
      Bad plug wires
      Weak ignition coil
      Wet plug wires

    Wheel Bearing on Left Front Wheel
    Need to replace the front left wheel bearing and tried to get an estimate from your site. However, only the rear wheel bearing keeps showing up. I got an estimate from VA Tire & Auto (South Riding, VA) for just the left front wheel bearing replacement for $740 ...

      The price quote received sounds too expensive - the front wheel / hub bearing assembly should cost no more than around $50.00 for the part itself.

      You should be able to have both the front hub / bearing assemblies replaced for around $200.00 or so - both wheels as is recommended, due to age / mileage and wear considerations. Find another repair shop to perform the front hub / bearing assembly replacement for a much lower cost.

      The parts are readily available from these many on-line sources, www.partsgeek.com, www.rockauto.com, www.discountautoparts.com, www.autopartswarehouse.com, www.jcwhitney.com - to list only a few possibilities.
      In fact, they (RockAuto) list the front hub bearing assemblies from around $42.00 each for your vehicle.

    Why does my 6 speed manual whine when trying to go into reverse and will not go?
    Other gears appear to work fine, I sold this car to a young man who quit making payments so I got it back but don't know what he did to it.

    Why does the car engine revs go up when the car is moving?
    1.Mileage is 67,800km. 2.This happens when the car gets hot. It happens when the car is moving. It happens so most of the times. It started after the car was serviced. First it starts to jerk. Engine light is off. No warning lights.

      Does your vehicle have an automatic or manual transmission. Can you describe the issue better. Does it rev up on its own. Or does it rev when you apply gas. Does the vehicle accelerate when it revs. Or does it maintain the same speed while only the engine revs. your problem sounds like a slipping transmission. But you will have to describe the problem a little more to narrow it down. If it has an automatic trans. Start by checking the trans fluid for proper level and condition.
