About two weeks ago my car started hesitating. I will be driving at a steady speed and it feels as if all power is lost for just a second than back to normal. It started out being very spaced out maybe once a day. I though It was probably just a clogged injector or something like that so I ran a injector/ fuel system cleaner through. The car after that drove fine again for about a week. Then today sitting in traffic on my way home it started doing it but alot more frequent like once every two or three minutes. Ithought that if this surge of no power was to hit while the car was just idling that the engine would die. then at the next light it did. But it started right back up. Then about five minutes later it happened again but the car wouldnt start this time, so I pushed the car off the road. Then I tried to start it a few minutes later and it started right up, but I figured that I would wait until traffic slowed down a bit before traveling the last two miles home. After about forty five minutes I drove the rest of the way home and the car seemed to be running fine. Has anyone experienced anything similar, or does anybody have any suggestions for me. TIA...

replace your fuel pump relay. its in the panel behind the coolant overflow bottle. sounds like the very symptoms of a failing relay
