2003 Grand Prix hesitation on acceleration Won't shift until I let up on the gas, shifts out of 1st at about 2200 to 2500 RPM and then from 2nd to 3rd at about 3500 RPM again once i let up on the gas. Extremely hot weather and just started with the problem 2 days ago. I'm afraid I'm going to get run over on the highway on my daily commute. It seems like the car is gasping for air or fuel. Was a bit better when I turned off the AC. ABS light comes on and off intermittently as well and that problem started about a week ago. Are these 2 separate issues or are they linked?

The first thing you need to do is have the engine control computer tested for fault codes, if none are present check the fuel pressure and do a voltage output test on the Mass Airflow Meter. Most Autozone and O'reilly auto parts do this testing for free, ask for an OBD2 fault code test.
