    I am having problems with my car i go and press the gas and it was to sorta die a bit but if i push on the gas a bit more it wants to pick up more i need to figure out what is going on right now

    Easy solution? Take it to a trusted mechanic.
    DIY? Take a look at the intake to see if the sensor is damaged, swap it out anyway. Check the injectors for clogs, maybe the fuel filter is done for. There could be multiple problems, buy a workshop manual and go through the troubleshooting process.

        Do you hear a grinding noise? Does it feel clunky? Do the gears engage smoothly while shifting? Is there any vibration?

            Read or get someone to read the fault codes first. That should be the first thing to do.

                Safe for all cars, would be a dry style.
                The only risky pod filter type, is the ones you need to oil, because if you over-oil it, and you have a MAF sensor, oil vapors can get on it, and the car will never run right again (even if you clean it; well, I suppose you can replace the sensor, but they're often $500).
                So yeah, a Dry fabric type is the 'kinda' pod filter you want.

                As for that hesitation, it sounds like a fuel filter, or old sparkplugs.

                - When was the last time you replaced the fuel filter?

                - What do the spark plugs look like? (is the gap bigger than 1mm, and are they jet-black, or paint-white; they should be neither and be a nice 'burnt grey')

                    they arent burnt grey they look more of a black though which ik is not good at all

                    the fuel filter on this kinda car is gonna cost me a bit of money too and need help to replace it
