1995 honda accord seems to struggle under slow acceleration
I dont know how to better describe it than my car humps when it is under a small amount of acceleration... with faster acceleration it doesnt do it at all... i have changed the cap and rotor, the plugs and wires, fuel filter, engine mounts... cant figure it out, mostly does this at low speeds, but can also feel it between 80 and 100 km/h as well.... tires are balanced...

Brother Dave, stuff wears out as you well know. But indications don't always point to the obvious. I know it sounds like fuel delivery problem, and new pump didn't fixit, so change the EGR valve. That's Exhaust Gas Recirculation valve. It's part of emissions control and only a couple of small bolts hold it onto the intake manifold with a small vacuum line running to it. A bad EGR will cause the slow pickup speed and won't pull a hill or even a short grade. I believe this EGR change will fix your situation completely. Good day my friend, and happy motoring.
Could be a weak fuel pump with the strainer being dirty, the fuel filter could need changed or possibly a leak in the seam of the gas tank. Pay attention to see if it also happens when you make a hard accelerated left turn, or if it is less noticeable when your fuel tank is full. When your tank is full, look for leaks under the car. You should also check for leaks in the fuel line leading from the tank all the way up to the fuel filter. You might get a CHECK ENGINE LIGHT that refers you to the injectors. This most likely means they are thirsty for fuel and are not getting it in the regular amount. Good luck.
I had this happen in two other cars. It turned out I had to replace the heater coil. ( Looks like a very small radiator) often located under the front passenger floor or in/on the firewall under the hood. Hope this helps.
