Welcome newbie!

When you say you feel it in the steering wheel, I think of wheel balancing or alignment or something like that.

So is your hesitation a kind of vibration? Or is it like the car doesn't have power for a second - then it moves?

Your car doesn't have spark plug wires. Coil-on-plug system means each spark plug has it's own coil right on top.

Regular gasoline is OK. FI cleaners once-in-awhile is OK, but don't overdo it by using it all the time.

I'd expect if you have any loose vacuum hoses, that would trigger the check-engine light.

Auto or manual tranny? Are you feeling the tranny downshifting when you press on the gas pedal?
