    Sounds like in the old days" vapor lock". my carb cars used to do that until I changed the fuel lines.

    Not sure but you can bet there are several people here that can help you out.

    Also sounds like my duramax diesel truck, it seems to have a delay on the gas peddle and the engine, you press the gas and it takes a bit for the engine to respond.

    It is not right, take it in. It should pound itself across the road as we all know.

    I wonder if you are having the same problem I had with my '08 Challenger. I'm a two-foot driver. If I was at a stop and just touched the gas pedal the little red lightning bolt on the dash would light. Get my foot of the gas and the light would go out. However, there would be a throttle response delay the next time I tried to accelerate. Dealer told me that was normal and to make sure I didn't even breath on the accelerator when I was at a stop. After shutting the engine off for a few seconds the problem would go away and the throttle response would be normal again. Just a thought...

    Was it after a fill up? There were issues before with this happening when people just filled up there cars, and when the pump "clicks" off, they continue to put in a little extra until its clicked a couple times now. I think the issue was it was overfilling the thank, filling up the EVAP lines and canister and causing similar issues.
