hello,\n\nI've had this problem on my 2001 4-cyl accord (automatic) for a while.\nIt has 55K miles on it.\nWhen accelerating from a low speed, the acceleration is often not\nsmooth, it feels like its being kicked from behind. The problem has\nnot gotten worse nor better. I've posted before and gotten a few\nsuggestions and want to get advice on the comments received.\n\n1. Automatic transmission issue - extended warranty.\nI checked online and this appears to be for 6 cyl cars and am not\nsure if my problem is really that.\n\n2. EGR valve - how to diagnose this?\nI have no check engine light nor code.\n\n3. Fuel filter - I was told in another forum that this does not\nrequire replacement.\n\n4. spark plugs - I was told in another forum that platinum types don't\nrequire repl till 100K miles.\n\n5. Air filter - replaced once, but didn't help.\n\n6. Air Intake manifold - how to check if I need to get this cleaned?\n\n7. Anything else??\n\nThanks for any help!
