In the mornings, or after sitting for 6 hours once I turn on the engine revs for at least 5 minutes, also after driving it for a short time, and distance the car acts as if its about to cut off. Sputters when stopped at a traffic light. After parking it for a few minutes it's fine. This doesn't happen all the time just sporadically.
Do you
have the same problem?

IF YOU'LL JUST REMOVE THIS PUPPY AND CLEAN IT WELL WITH THROTTLE BODY CLEANER---IT MAY BE ALL YOU NEED TO DO
