Default 1993 ls 400

I currently have a 1993 Lexus LS400--that I am experiencing some problems with. When I try to accelerate in the morning time after stopping at a red light-my car seems to want to hesitate as if it isnt breathing right or a loss of power--and at times it seems to want to die. This is more common in the morning time when I first get in the car or after my car has been sitting for a while--do I need to let the car warm up longer because of the age? I was going to get the trottle body cleaned and possibly a tune-up but I wanted to post a thread first to see what you guys think I should do. After the vehicle warms it seems to work fine--but I can tell I have a lot of loss power whithin its performance. I was also wanting to ask about changing the fluid in the transmission (without flushing)--is this a good idea--got a recommendation after getting a oil change to get fluids changed in transmission because it was dirty. What do you guys think--please send me whatever suggestions-and what I can do first before spending my money-thanks and I will be waiting. Goodbye.

It is due to its longer age.Its having starting problem after sitting for a long time.i think its better to first go for the complete servicing.then I'm sure it will start easily.

Supposedly,it is somehow because of the age and how often you use it.I experienced it to one of my car and just can't let go because it's a family car from my granfather.
