Hey guys,
I don't normally post too much but I was on ym way to work this morning and I was coming to a stop but when i took off the car almost was hitching or hesitating like three times before it would actually go. It is an auto trans and it's a 2008 ls, 2 door! I've only had the car three months :mad: It hasn't happend yet again.
Anyone had this problem before?
I have an appointment to get it checked out tomorow!

Very difficult to diagnose this without looking at the car, especially considering it was one-time. Dealer may find a cause if a code was stored in the ECM, but if no code was stored -- because it happened once -- they'll have a hard time finding it too.

Water could cause the problem you describe -- if the humidity was high and you had dew all over the car, for example.

Hey,
Thanks for your help! They are going to put the car on the computer so hopefully they find something. And there was dew all over the car too. Oh well, it's a waiting game now.
Thanks Again

My car does this all the time. Especially right after I start it in the mornings. I had the codes checked and was told it was the mass air sensor reading a lean condition. I replaced the sensor but still have the problem. I'll let you know when I figure out the solution.
