My 2000 4.7 Dakota hesitates and sputters on first acceleration after a cold start,then in a few seconds it's fine. does it more often when cold out but does it when warm out too. No trouble codes are present. I've replaced the battery, tryed injector cleaners( lucus, seafoam, stp), ran premium fuel, cleaned air filter. Nothin has seemed to help, Does anyone have an idea on what to do?? Truck has 144k

Welcome to the DakotaZ from NC! May want to remove the throttle body and give it a good cleaning though it's usually associated with idle problems. Whens the last time the plugs were changed?
