    I've had this problem on my 2001 4-cyl accord (automatic) for a while.
    It has 55K miles on it.
    When accelerating from a low speed, the acceleration is often not
    smooth, it feels like its being kicked from behind. The problem has
    not gotten worse nor better. I've posted before and gotten a few
    suggestions and want to get advice on the comments received.

    1. Automatic transmission issue - extended warranty.
    I checked online and this appears to be for 6 cyl cars and am not
    sure if my problem is really that.

    2. EGR valve - how to diagnose this?
    I have no check engine light nor code.

    3. Fuel filter - I was told in another forum that this does not
    require replacement.

    4. spark plugs - I was told in another forum that platinum types don't
    require repl till 100K miles.

    5. Air filter - replaced once, but didn't help.

    6. Air Intake manifold - how to check if I need to get this cleaned?

    7. Anything else??

    Thanks for any help!

    At 55,000 miles/ 7 years change the tranny fluid at least once anyway.
    DIY with Honda Z1 only.

    I'm leaning toward EGR.
