The Accord is hesitating/not accelerating. I have only noticed it in
4th gear with constant pressure on the accelerator it slightly lurches
forward/hesitates and loses speed. Car has 165,000 miles. Any ideas?

my 93 accord is doing this same thing...again! i have 166,000 miles and i
want to say last time this happened it was something with the fuel pump or
fuel injector. let me know if you are told differently, because obviously
i had a temporary solution.
If it happens to be when the gas pedal is at your 'cruising position',
it may be the Throttle Position Sensor. Fantastically easy to diagnose
with an old 'needle' type ohmeter. Replacement methods vary. Search
Google to find all methods. Don't bother thying to use a digital meter
unless it is a good one with an analog scale.
