Accelerator not as responsive at times.
The sensor is usually located on the throttle plate so that it can directly monitor the position of the throttle. The ECU then makes the direction to supply more or less fuel to the motor. When this sensor is not working properly, this can cause intermittent responses when pressing the gas pedal. If you want to have this work done outside of the dealer, a certified technician from YourMechanic can come to your home or office to inspect the acceleration issue and replace the accelerator pedal sensor as necessary.

There are two separate sets of marks on this system. One set is for aligning the timing chain to the camshaft gears and the intermediate shaft gear. There will be marks on the chain that raps around the crankshaft gear as well. These marks will not line up after you turn the motor over.The other marks are on the inside of the camshaft gears and align with the cylinder head parting line. If you were to draw a ling through the center of both camshaft gears, they should line up with that imaginary line.
The crankshaft key way should be aligned with the mating face of the main bearing cap. You can confirm it is in the correct position by verifying the number one piston is at top dead center. If you have removed the balance shaft timing chain, these marks really need a visual diagram to understand where they should be aligned. Without a diagram I am not very confident it can be explained very clearly.
This may be difficult to to follow, so again I highly recommend purchasing a repair manual in digital form or a book. If you feel this is over your head, I recommend the following inspection to help you out. Timing chain replacement
Good luck! I hope I was able to help you.
Billing and parts question was sent to CS for the cost of parts and labor for valve train and related parts from a broken timing belt for a 1992 Acura Legend with a V6-3.2L engine.
From what you are explaining, it sounds like the fuel pump is failing. When the fuel is low, the pump will get hot and a weak pump will lose pressure causing this to occur. I would usually check the fuel pressure to see if it is low, especially when the fuel level is low. If it is, then the pump needs to be replaced. If you plan on having this done, consider YourMechanic, as a certified technician can come to your home or office to diagnose the hesitation problem and guide you with repairs.
