Very common problem. Just replace your sparking units.

DeDonDeRosa,

I did two things that got rid of my "hesitation/misfire":
1) I re-gapped the plugs to .035" (instead of the factory recommended .040-.051")
2) I brought the oil level up to spec, the V-Tec solenoid needs oil to operate (if your V-Tec solenoid is "fried," you will need a new one...~$150).

Hopefully these two suggestions will solve your problem. If they don't, then you might have to replace your coil packs at ~$250+ just for the parts (Ignition Coil - OEM Part Number 30520PWC003 - Price - $$61.62).

LMK what goes,

BTW, I am at 92K on the original plugs. I just checked the gap yesterday, and they are still where I gapped them. Here is what they look like at 92K if you are interested:

just want to share my story too...
this happened to my car a few weeks ago. it started to stumble/shake a little when it's accelerating on slight inclined road. First i thought it was just bad gas and the problem would go away if i try different gas, but it was not the case because it still shakes and even got worse after I tried different gas. Later i took my car to a repair shop and the mechanic said this could be a misfire and replaced new spark plugs in, now my car works fine like normal without the shaking problem.

at 63k my wife's 08 i think may be developing a slight mis.. i guess it would be about time to change the plugs. i'm thinking my EGR is clogged too. will be looking at it at the track today. i have plenty of time to kill.

Had a similar problem with my wifes fit when it had about 55k. Found out cyl 3 had a bad coil. $80 later no more misfire.
