HERE'S my problem: When I 1st crank my car, I have to let it warm up for about 3 to 5 mins. If I do not let it warm up when I first start driving and I hit the gas, it kind of just putts. It seems to me like it is not getting gas, but im not sure. What might be causing this?

The first thing I would do is to take it to an Advance Auto or Auto Zone and have them check for trouble codes...they do it for free.
