Hello Alexsandra,

When you first start off your engine is going from idle to requiring more fuel and air to provide the power needed to get you going.

The first place to start would be to check for a flashing instrument panel check engine light or as it is sometimes referred to a SES light (Service Engine Soon) and having your vehicles computer checked for stored fault codes.

Transmission sometime jerking on changing gear most of the time on 2nd + 3rd?

DO NOT have the trans flushed if it has over 75,000... VERY BAD IDEA!!!
it could possibly just be a little low on fluid, Check that. If it is'nt low/or that does'nt straighten it out. it is a more serious problem. I would try some "lucas transmission conditioner".

Cheek engine light on ,scaner say 3re plug

The fuel injector is the most likely problem here,try lucas fuel treatment to clean the injectors,use it with the least amount of fuel as possible,because of the problem you are having,you need it to be consentrated.

I have a 97 2 door tahoe. I have trouble starting it. It turns over but wont start right away. It takes about 8-10 seconds of cranking to get it to start. It will start right away if you push the gas down...

o2 is a sensor. You could try replacing the correct one (up to 4 o2 sensors are possible any given vehicle). If check engine light is still on, have the codes cleared, have scan performed again to get the fault codes for possibly the specific o2 sensor. Hope this is helpful.

Hi amberdawn_84

My 97 yukon did the same thing (I believe). The valve body in the transmisson wears out (design problem) and causes the transmission to shift really hard. My repair was about $500 (nondealer).
