Default 92 Accord Engine High Speed Hesitation Problem

Looking for some advice on a small problem I'm having with a 92 Accord,
automatic transmission with 156K miles. Everything on the engine is
original except for the distributor. Excluding plugs and filters of
course.

When driving on the freeway anywhere between 65 and 75 miles an hour and
at a constant speed, when depressing the accelerator slightly the engine
will start to buck or accelerate roughly. Sorry, it's hard to explain.
If I accelerate faster it doesn't seem to do it. This doesn't happen
all the time either. It doesn't happen at slower speeds or when
accelerating from a stop no matter how hard. Otherwise the car runs
fine. Not burning any oil and my gas mileage is pretty much the same as
the day I got the car.

Any thoughts on what the problem might be?

Thanks

Could it be one of your wires grounding out?

I am not sure that this will solve your problem but it's worth a try.
Adjust the timing. In addition, add a bottle of fuel system cleaner to a
full tank of gasoline. I'm guessing that the timing or a clogged or
partially clogged injector might be part of the problem. Even if I am
wrong, these two suggestions are not expensive.

Thanks for the suggestions. I'll check the timing. I've never done it
on this car but I've done it hundreds of times on others. Come to think
of it the last car I did was a 73 Olds Cutlass. I thought that the
timing was adjusted automatically by the computer.

As for the fuel system cleaner I just put some in right before this
started. It was Techron.

I would think it's possible. I take the car in for all of its scheduled
service and when I remember I as ask about the plug wires and they keep
telling me that they don't need replaced unless there is a problem. You
would think there would be a replacement interval on them.

Be sure the throttle body is clean. There are also some passage ways in
the air intake area just before the injectors that can be cleaned out.
They are plugged at the factory after casting the part, but the plugs
can be drilled out, and the holes can be taped and small bolts installed
after cleaning.
I doubt the wires are the trouble. They generally show trouble at full
load, like accelerating up hill. bob

The EGR plugs are available over the counter at the dealer, for cheap. A
slide hammer works quite well for removal.

Did you try to download any codes out of the ECU? What kind of plugs are
you running? I would check them even if they are fairly new.

civic and want to know from someone that's done it before.

Drill a wee hole almost through the plug, screw in the hammer, bang them
out.
Clean out everything you can see with carb cleaner and small picks/drill
bits, and tap in the new plugs. I used drill bits as a drift to set the new
plugs.
