It hesitates sometimes from taking off. Almost like it cuts off. Does not feel like a tranmission problem,but maybe fuel delivery?
The fuel filter is less than 1 year old. What could it be?
Also, it slightly misses at idle.

bad TPS may give you a similar symptom.
shift into second early and romp on it while rpm is still low. if it misses its most likely a spark delivery problem.

The computer has been setting a code for over a year, but I don't know how to pull codes on it.

And feels like it needs timing set, but at least it is nothing urgent.
I have a Craftsman timing light, just need to figure out how to use it.

I will begin by replacing the plug wires, and also distributor cap and rotor.

I knew it had to be an ignition problem. I also knew my distributor cap and rotor weren't that old, about 1 year, and didn't expect them to be bad.
I pulled them anyway and found out that a part of the distributor had disintegrated and 2 large chunks of plastic were loose inside. I fished them out. I also found out that the distributor cap was worn, as was the rotor - it was bent even. The plastic stuff came from the edge. Now there is a small hole in the distributor, I hope it doesn't make a difference.
Replaced these two parts, and a world of difference. No more hesitation or misses, at throttle or idle.
