Did the mechanic used a generic scanner? it could be that it was only able to read the set codes. Once you get the peake, reading the pending codes should help out a lot. As far as isolating the problem, and having a common feel for what could be wrong with your car, I absolutely get what you're saying. Any good driver/mechanic can tell if his hesitation/vibration is coming from the engine,suspension/alignment,or wheels/tires. GL OP, and hope you get your car fixed. Sounds, like it could be a slightly clogged injector, or fouled plug that gets intermittent sparks. Run some injection cleaner, and pull the plugs, you get lucky and find your problem there.
