I have a 1994 honda accord LX 4 dr 16v and I changed all wires, changed EGR valve(new) and cleaned intake, and ck all vacuum llines and it hesitates
between 1200-2500 rpm, and after that fine. And if I give gas easy its fine. Its driving me crazy before I bring it in shop and spend another 500.00 any advice will be great

Check the plugs and when you do, examine them closely to see which one looks the worst. Don't mix them up. Make sure you know which came from which cylinder. It is just my guess, but I would be thinking about a possible dirty injector on the worse plug's cylinder.

Im going to replace with the iridium plugs NGK NG2477 or NG4363(your opinion)and if it is one of the injectors are clogged or dirty how do I repair. Do I get a good cleaner and put in tank. And drive hoping it would open up?

I like the platinum. I like the bigger electrode.

On the injectors, I have the luxury of sticking in a used injector that I know is good. I would certainly try a couple of tanks with the injector cleaner in it. Note by the performance and then plugs if necessary if it is improving. Then professional cleaning or replacement.

I went and bought the NGKs and installed them, sure enough the 2nd one was black and bad looking compared to the others, anyway I went for a test run, and WOW! What a difference no MORE hesitation
actually the car runs very smooth. Well thank you very much for your help, sorry I have no points to share. If you lived near, I buy you a steak dinner.

Why would it go bad as I replaced them 10 months ago? The car has 165,000 miles

Try some injector cleaner and think about replacing the fuel filter. You may have an injector that is sticking a bit and not closing down as it is supposed to. That explains the fowling of the one plug.
