the gas for at least ten seconds then it will jerk forward , my service check

Also, it hesistates to start when i turn the key 75% of the time. help?

Sure, since the check engine light is on, you can scan for the faulty codes. This will help us determine what your potential issue is. You can have a local auto parts store scan it for free and post the codes back here.

Look check the fuel injector wiring harnesses. That's what was wrong with me car...
