When I start my car, the tachometer will jump up and down and the car
misses. It continues doing this at stops for a mile or two.  Then the car seems
to run smoothly.  What is causing this?

When was the last time you did a tuneup?

What is involved in a tune-up? I have had both oxygen sensors changed and new spark plugs

Spark plugs are the main thing these days. An air filter and fuel filter are also a good idea. Is the check engine light on?

I would also use a good fuel system cleaner in your next tank of gas.

The check engine light is not on. I used a fuel system cleaner in the last tank of gas. The air filter was changed about 2 months ago. I guess I will try a fuel filter next. Thanks for your help!
