MY HESITATION ISSUE: :wtf:
When i start the car in the morning, i let it warm up for a few minutes and when i start to go down the street, I feel like im attempting to drive up a slight hill when im really on flat.. It isnt very noticable when the car is warm. The loss of power is reallllly annoying and i need to fix it.. The hesitation is only there around 2500-3100 almost constantly in gears 1,2 and 3.. and then i get my power back. What should i do??!
ALSO, last but not least... When cold, i hear a slight chatter in the back of my valve cover and i believe that is a sticky lifter.... Im 99% sure its not my timing chain since i JUST replaced the chain, guide and tensioner (s14 metal backed guides) so it shouldnt be my guides being broken or anything. My chain is tight, not loose. But maybe my timing is just off a little bit? I had it set to TDC and my oil gear is properly alligned. Maybe i need to set it to -10 btdc instead of -15? (thats where it felt most comfortable, less shake)
Thank you for your help who ever is reading this post.
I frequently google my problems and do not rely on my subscription to zilvia to get my feedback believe me. My dad helps alot with my trouble shooting but yet, he is 62 and imports are not quite his speciatly.....
PLEASE HELP AND THANK YOU TONS.

Idk about the hesitation, but the ticking is most likely valve tick. Just a shim that is out of clearance.

I don't think KA24E valves are shimmed. I do know they've hydraulic lifters that may need bleeding.

i have a sohc as well

in all gears from 2700-3300 there is the slighest hesitation if i hammer it

its VERY VERY mild but seems to be the same as yours but just not nearly as bad.

it happened after my timing chain install so im thinking its GOT To be timing huh?>
