hesitation

About 30 seconds after starting my car it does this thing where it hesitates heavily, almost to the point where it feels like it's going to die but never does. This happens 3-4 times in quick succession and then everything is fine. This problem only lasts 3-5 seconds and happens everytime. Ideas?

Mine did that for a while -- I cleaned the MAF gently with some elctrical contact cleaner, as well as the Air Intake Temp Sensor. Hasn't been back since, maybe that will help you too - quick $5 fix if that is the problem.

Also check the plugs and plug wires. Probably need a new set of wires.
