while driving at normal highway speed, if I "stomp" hard on the gas pedal the engine will sometimes hesitate or sputter before downshifting, or seemingly lag before firing up to speed

There are about 4000 codes for this engine, so the best thing to do is to have a Pro level tech diagnose this hesitation problem, by scanning the engine/transmission computers while performing a test drive and duplicating the hesitation.
