Re: '91 200 q hesitation-btdt?

The only thing I could see is possibly a leaking pressure hose, ic, etc. I
have very little info from you, but try to get a little more. Is there
black smoke out the back under these conditions? Does it ever return to
normal with temps, pressures? The last tune up? Plugs & wires good?
