Default accord acceleration problem

hello,

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!

There's a pause, and then it kicks in at high RPM, and then shifts
again? Its the tranny. Flush it, and it should get better, for a
while. It's the dark secret of Honda, a couple of generations of
4-speed autos do this.

My 2007 5-speed auto 4-cyl Accord is maybe just showing the first
signs of this at around 20k miles. My 1999 Acura CL6 did it right off
the lot, 2004 Accord 4-cyl got that way after the first year or so.

Before 1999, I was driving sticks, no problems at all!
