Hey folks! I've had my 2005 9-3 Linear 2.0t (automatic tranny) for a few months now and am trying to trace a slight stumbling/hesitation problem I have. When accelerating (typically under harder acceleration) and around 2500-3000 RPMs, the RPMs will suddenly stop increasing and drop a couple hundred RPMs (it almost feels like when a car shifts and the RPMs drop), the car seems to hesitate, and then when I continue giving gas it will "get over the hump" and keep accelerating. It does not feel like the car is misfiring, and it seems to run fine besides that. I have cleaned the MAF and the throttle body has not been cleaned but does not look that bad. Any suggestions as to what this could be? My forum research possibly points to spark plugs or coil packs, but my problem does not appear to be as extreme as those cases. I also removed one of the spark plugs and it looked fine (nothing outside the ordinary for a normally burning spark plugs). Thanks!
