Default hesitation

I have a 88 supra turbo,5-speed. Lately about every other drive cycle, intermintantly while I'm driving, the car will start to hesitate really bad and the engine will not respond to my gas petal for about three seconds, than it will respond. A check engine light comes on then goes away a few seconds later. I pulled over and did not shut the key off so I wouldn't lose the code and I did a diagnostics and no codes were found. It sounds like it might be a afm or tps. I'm not sure yet I need to do some resistance checks.

How is the oil pressure when it doesn't respond? Does the turbo have any play? Other than those I would think it would be electrical. Good luck!

Oil pressure is ok, turbo has minimal play. The engine run great, turbo boost is working good, it's just every now and then it acts up, I just don't see how a check engine light comes on and I don't shut off the key and still theres no code when I do a diagnostics.

O2 sensor problems will ususally happen constant at high speed/ high load conditions.
Intermittent hesitation could be the afm, or the tps, but should have a code pop up with te and e1 shorted. Could also be fuel pressure problem. Resistance checks might show all good unless you can test it when it is hesitating, which would be difficult at best.

Since its a intermittant problem, I would like to believe it something electrical. I removed the afm sensor from it's housing and noticed the sensing pole was covered in crap. I do have a K and N cone filter which I think is doing the damage since I have recharged it and probably over oilled the filter. I did resistance checks on the meter and found one measurement that was way off from spec and it was not the air temp sensing part. I'm going to shotgun it with the afm.
