Default Starting issues

I have a 2005 mitsubishi Galant 4 cyl automatic. While I "test drove" a car we got my our daughter my Galant sat for a week during this time that was about a month ago.
Went to start it for work that Monday morning after it had Sat for that week and it was hard starting. Only way to start it was to hold gas pedal to floor while starting. Had been running fine since until Tuesday after work I went to start it and it did it again had to hold gas pedal to the floor to start and it was fine on Wednesday.
Could it be my plugs and wires or something else?
It's has also been shifting hard between 2nd and 3rd when it's not left to run a few to warm up so wondering if having transmission fluid and filter changed would help this or is a flush better?
