Question type: Maintenance & Repair

I have a 2000 Chrysler sebring lxi and this
problem just started a couple days ago. The
car idles just fine but when I start to drive it
begins to "studder" this only happens at
initial takeoff or when I'm trying to maintain
speed (lightly pressing accelerator). It
doesn't doing it when I'm accelerating at
moderate rpms, the car seems to run fine. It
doesn't have a Maf sensor so where should
I start?
