Wont start when turn key but will start after turnin key second time

(2000 Oldsmobile Intrigue)
in Macomb, IL on March 17, 2010
Whenever I try to start my car now the car makes a stuttering kind of sound and will not start until I press down on the gas a couple of times. Once it starts everything is fine. My Service Engine Soon light is now on and it's really starting to annoy me! What is wrong with my car?!

Start by checking fault codes in the engine control module, you will have a diagnostic trouble code (DTC) stored, this code will help point you in the right direction. There are hundreds of reasons for the Service Engine Soon light to come on, so it's impossible to know anything without having that code.
