Default civic hesitates (stutters) between 1500 and 2000rpm

Recently my 2000 civic sir (si in the US) has started to hesitate or stutter
periodically. It happens between 1500 and 2500 rpm and I beleive it's
usually when it's warm, and I'm accelerating from a stop. Any ideas what
this could be?

You changed the fuel filter?

Checked air filter?

Had any work done under the hood, where some one could have pulled a
vacuum hose lose?

Changed the fuel cap?

I have recently replaced the air filter, changed oil/filter, and pcv valve.
The problem started shortly before I did this.
If it was a vaccume hose issue, how can I track down the leak?

you'll almost certainly have codes stored in the computer. read them,
then report back.

I hooked up a computer two weeks ago when it started,and there were no
codes. My girlfriend said the check engine light blinked a few times on her
way to work, so I'll check again. Haven't seen the light come on since.

I'll check again this week.

No codes. I was able to get the engine light blink a few times. I was
accelerating from stop, and the engine was hesitating, kind of boggin down.
I floored it and after about two seconds the engine light blinked 5 or 6
times. After about 5 seconds the engine started responding properly and the
engine like went away. No codes were saved.

I've got an obd2 code reader. It connects with a green light and no codes
are reported. I know it works because we've connected it to other vehicles
and it's reported codes on them.

For the experts: does this sound like distributor trouble?

in that case, look into the ignition switch. for your model year, there
was a recall because the switched burnt out - and symptoms were odd, but
left no code like you describe. it's particularly bad if you have a
heavy key ring. try using the key on its own and making sure you
manually return the key fully to the "run" position after cranking
rather than letting it turn back with just the spring. the spring's not
very strong, and particularly with a heavy key ring, the contacts only
partially engage, overheat, and burn out. and of course, replace the
ignition switch if this turns out to be the cause.
