Bogs down

This kind of fits in with a couple of recent posts, but it's a little different and I didn't want to hijack someone elses thread.
But, my 97/2.5 4 cyl. stock motor bogs down when you first get going. After that, it's fine. Even if the motor is still hot, say you park it and go in and eat and come out after 45min to an hour later, when you firtst start going, it will bog down, i let off the accelerator once or twice and then it's fine.
Had the codes run at an autozone and it's not showing anything wrong. I've had it right at 2 months and it was tuned up with new plugs, wires, caps, rotor before I got it by the previous owner under a thousand miles ago. The work was done by a shop and I have the receipt so I'm "assuming" it was done right, but after reading some threads, I might need to make sure they are the correct plugs.

Cllean the throttle body, take off the aircleaner, look at the slot, buy some t body cleaner, start the engine, manually rev it and spray directly into the slot. Worked for me. jj
