Look for a large air leak in the intake hoses and pipes. Beyond that, you need to get into diagnosing the fuel injection system, which involves special tools and experience. If you have a voltmeter you can do some checks, do you have one?

check to see if your belt tensioner is moving at all when the engine is running if so you need a new one. its easy to change. when its loose its sortof throwing off your timing causing a random misfire and hesitation.
