Migth a miss fire and I'd start with checking the spark plugs and leads to see all are working correctly.

I am going to do a full tune up this weekend. I just seems weird that it only happens when i accelerate.

When you accelerate the throttle opens to mix fuel and air and any miss fire will get worse then as any unburt fuel will fire back into the chamber.

I'm having this issue what was the cause?
