I feel the engine hesitate on slight inclines when I accelerate unless I floor it. Just recently started. Doesn't seem to make a difference how fast I am already going. At first it only happened at low speed but now also at higher speed.

    Yes, the 'service engine soon' light is on because we disconected the temp. sensor until I can aford to replace it. The fans were not cycling on unless a/c was on and engine temp guage was reading hot. so now the fans are on all the time as soon as I start the car. UPDATE: replaced fan motors and intake manifold gasket. The gas cap is the first thing I check now when the "service engine soon" light comes on because this seems to be a frequent cause. The car is still overheating.
