One/some of the following cause/s your engine to hesitate,

Check air filter - clean or replace

Check fuel filter - replace

Check delapidated vacuum hoses, this is typically connected to the engine intake manifold - check if broken then replace, or it was loose - fit it correctly ( whistling noise could be heard with this problem)

Check fuel pump pressure and pressure regulator - if defective fuel pump - replace it, if pressure regulator stuck - replace it.

Check engine timing - adjust as needed

Check MAF & MAP sensors - MIL (malfunction inductor lamp) is present, better replace the sensors

Check for severely worn or misadjusted spark plugs - adjust or replace
