Lag/hesitation on 1st gear acceleration?

Hey all,

I get a 1 sec lag/hesitation when accelerating in 1st gear. Not sure if it happens often in 2nd gear. .......Not sure I have ever really noticed this before.
It's more pronounced in first gear for sure.

Is this normal?
No codes thrown.

- Old school turbo lag?
- Something fuel related?
- Plugs/electrical?
- clutch slipping (I may need a new clutch)?

Otherwise, the car runs like a boss!!

Thoughts/suggestions?

Would have to see a scan to see what the car is doing to give you a better idea of what you're experiencing.

Could it be a bad plug too?

Thanks!

I've had the same problem on my '07 RedLine since purchased with 3,000 miles, some eleven years ago. It now has 24,000 miles. Mine is an automatic, but exhibits the one second lag as soon as I accelerate. I had it at the dealership twice. First they denied feeling it, then backed off when we took a second RedLine out. Their solution was to add a can of injector cleaner to the fuel tank. I've learned to live with it. Will be interested to see if anybody else has a solution.

My guess is an ignition coil though.
After some research, you may be right, ignition coil.....
