Question about 2000 Oldsmobile Bravada
Truck runs fine when first started. Will on occasion lose power and start missing at at stop signs etc. Wil go back to normal after few minutes of driving.
It could also be your throttle positiong sensor. Is the check enginge light on? If it is just put it on a scope and it will tell you for sure

Unhook your battery (neg terminal), let it sit for ten minutes, then start the car and let it run for two minutes without touching anything. This resets the computer, I had a Buick that required this about three times a year, fixed it every time. If this isn't your problem, is is getting progressively worse? Look at the coil, it may need to be replaced. Of course, make sure your air cleaner is clean. Do you have any codes in your computer? Go to one of the discount auto parts stores they will read it for free. Of all the sensors, it may be the mass airflow sensor, look atr this link, it is located in air delivery system connected to your air cleaner housing. If you pull it out DON'T BREAK THE WIRES IN IT, but you can sometimes clean them with denatured alcohol and a Q-tip.
