    Slight hesitation at half throttle acceleration

    I notice this sometimes or it just might be in my head. At half throttle when getting on it I feel like the car is making power and then theres a slight kick as it picks up a little faster. Did this when i picked it up and now even after changing the plugs.

    Things I have on the list are:

    Plug wires (look original still with 194k km on them)
    Fuel filter.

    Any common issues that cause a slight hesitation?

    thanks

    Mine was doing the exact same thing. last weekend I changed the plugs, (NGK-TR55IX), MSD wires, fuel filter and cleaned the throttle body ad MAF. Now I have no hesitation and she responds much better now.
