first it started hesitating at 40mph now it does it at all speeds, when idiling. Would think if it was the fuel pump it would have quit by now. been doing it for the past 2,000 or so miles. could it be the o2 sensor? it has 152000 miles on it. would appreciate any help. thanks.

    first you will have to get the car hooked up to a scanner to check for trouble codes then you can hook up a fuel pressure gauge to check the fuel pressure
