Okay, when i'm stopped at a stoplight and the light turns green I take my foot off the brake and put it on the gas and my car will like kick back one time then it drives fine. It doesn't do it every time but some times. And drives fine after that initial take off. No check engine light. No codes are present when hooked up to a obd reader. It's just that initial take off it jerks back once or kicks back and not every time.
Do you

Good evening,

The first thing I would do is check the spark plugs. You may have a plug breaking down under a load.

Beyond that, it could be dirty injectors not supplying sufficient fuel. You can try adding some injector cleaner to see if it helps.
