Default Something new to fix?

Today I noticed some serious hesitation after exiting a right hand exit ramp. I tried accelerating and the car hesitated about 4 times and then ran fine until the next 240 degree, right-hand exit ramp and then I got the same thing.

Background for diagnosis: The car is OBS with 2.2L 5MT with 217k on the odo. It is 100 degrees out today and I swapped out my coil pack 2 days ago as the other was crapping out on me. However I used a used coilpack for expeditiancy sake and I'm a cheap bastard.

Full tank in car.

I have never had this issue before so I am tapping into the NA knowledge bank here.

Thanks for your help.
Greg

I used to have a similar problem in my old Lumina when I didnt have much gas in the tank. The baffles had gone bad so the fuel would slosh away from the pickup. Sounds like fuel starvation if you ask me.

There are things in the tank to keep the fuel in place. These go bad with age. Im willing to bet thats your prob.
