7 long and 4 short is 74. which is cylinder misfire.

The last 3 could be MAP sensor.

clear the codes (take out the ecu fuse or disconnect the battery for 30 seconds)

take the car for a drive, if the code turns on at the point of hesitation (and it turns out to be 74) then it would be the misfire causing the hesitation.

depends on a lot of things. 74 the 4 being cylinder 4 is misfiring so mechanically, look at spark plug condition. wire condition as well as rotor and cap assembly (carbon tracking, corrosion on electrodes) would cause mechanical misfires.

or possibly a lazy injector. lots of reasons. all relatively easy to check out. but one step at a time.

I had the exact same problem a long time ago when I first put in my AEM CAI. I changed the plugs but the same problem was still there. I changed the plugs and cap and the problem was solved.

try switching the connectors on the 2 o2 sensors, or replace them both with a generic heated 02 sensor and wire in the heaters for both

i think it's just replacing the plugs and wires.. inspection can only go so far.

sure the car will run better, but im almost positive none of that will fix the hesitation, which is caused by the 2 o2 sensors.

igniter fixes the no start / jumping tach
plugs wires cap n rotor is just basic maintenance

the 2 02 sensor's is a serious headache in pr3 ecu's

and from what method did you deduce that the 02 sensor's are good.. hey they look ok they're plugged in?

its your choice, im done making suggestions

the dual 02 sensors on the early pr3 b16a1's is a known problem, google it,
