My 2004 Nissan Maxima will occasionally be slow to go when I put it in drive. It eventually will get up to speed but it takes a bit. What could be happening?

...well it being a 2004, there is a chance the EGR valve operates very slowly~ you might look at dissasemble and probably replace that~ might be the PCV elbow is not correct....should jiggle like a maraca~ you might check the car's own self-diagnostics...and the maintenance schedule....perhaps the plugs and filters have not been done~
