Nice ride! My advise, since the check engine light is on, is to take the car to an autoparts store and have them use a scan tool to retrieve the fault codes that are stored in the car's computer. Most parts stores offer this service free of charge. It could be caused by a faulty sensor, like the throttle position sensor, but getting the code(s) will help narrow down the specific cause of the problem more quickly. Sure hope this helped and good luck to ya!

Engine light came on, drove it around for a week and haven't notice any problem, still the light doesn't turn off

The check engine light is on to tell the driver the computer has found a problem that affects performance and emissions or fuel economy.
The computer would need to be scanned for trouble codes, the problem fixed, then the codes cleared to make the light go off.

My service engine light came on yesterday. When I press the gas it is hesitating and jerky. What could it be?

given the fact that your vehicle is coming up to 9 years old. here are a few ideas of what the cause could be for the hesitating and jerky performance. #1 dirty injector or injectors, #2 malfunctioning sensor of some sort. nowadays everything is controlled by a sensor. go to your mechanic and put the car on a scope. that will check all sensors and electronic devices that control the performance of your car. hope this helps you, or at least points u in the right direction for a resolution

2002 Yukon Hesitation when starting- No checking engine lights!!

This can be fuel pump related or just fuel filter related, spark plugs and injectors.
When engine is cold vaporization of gasoline is minimum. When fuel vapor is less than required and the fuel mixture is not ideal, ignition happens harder than it does under ideal running conditions of engine. When fuel pups is sweak, or filter is limiting, or fuel injectors are not injecting gasoline with improper pattern inside engine, or just becasue of corroded spark plugs, cold engine faces difficulties during first ignition.

PS: sometimes car starts and fails to start once more. this can be a sign of broken crank position sensor. FYI.
