Hesitation

If I floor it from a standstill, the car tends to buck and stutter, but if i floor it from a roll, it doesn't ever buck or hesitate. Any ideas?

HVAC question...

I had the heater on, and i decided to turn it up, and all of a sudden, it stopped working completely. The A/C doesn't work either. Is it the switch or the motor?
