Still has hiccup

My 1996 LeSabre has had a hiccup for some time now. I have had it to the shop. No codes. I had the plugs, wires and oxygen sensor replaced. Condition continues. I've noticed it while the wife is driving when she pulls out of a side street or parking lot onto a busy highway and she has to gun it to get into the traffic flow. Yesterday, while she was driving it seemed like the engine wasn't always getting enough fuel. So, today I am wondering if this is a fuel injector problem or am I missing a transmission problem?

Could be weak coil(s). You need a spark tester to verify the coils are up to the task. Also check fuel pressure & filter.

We, like you, would just be guessing....

Need to get a scan tool on this and recreate the problem while looking at engine AND transmission data....
