Check your ignition leads for spark or shorts. In dim light you will see the spark jumping where there is a short. Don't put your fingers near the leads when running. Bit of a nasty. If you have a timing light just hook up each lead one ata time to check for flash from the strobe. 

Hope this helps

Vehicle hesitates when you accelerate .

make sure you have the correct spark plugs(2)check the throttle position sensor on the car,as most people would be driving about with the throttle on the floor car feels fine.but as in normal driving anyone only uses the first half of the pedal and this is where most wear takes place and sometimes causes hesitation when of luck.
