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?

Do you

It could be a fuel pressure problem.
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.
Here is a link to a walk through diagnostic on hesitation issues. It is very good as it goes through the process of elimination in a sensible and logical pattern.
