1998 Honda Accord mileage: 99,000. With Manual transmission. The problem is that when I accelerate with the pedal about one quarter on the way down to full throttle it will start to hesitate. Now this hesitation is like one of the cylinders is not firing, which could be possibly true. But this does not happen all of the time and is becoming irritating. Sometimes it could do it when you startup and then for a while it wont do it. I have replaced the spark plus and wires. I have checked the fuel injectors with an ohm meter and they checked out okay, all of them have the same reading. This is the weirdest thing that my dad has come a crossed too. He has been a mechanic for about twenty years. I have heard that it could be an EGR Valve problem, but I think I checked it out right and IT was fine. Another thing we checked was distributor cap and the rotor. Is there a temp gauge that could be bad? I don't know what else this could be. If you could be of any help, it would be great. Thank You

Your problem sounds like a faulty distributor.
