Lately the water pressure on my kitchen faucet when I turn it on somtimes is zero and then after a few seconds builds up to normal, or it comes out fine initially for a few seconds then drops very low and then builds up again. This only happens with my kitchen faucet. What area should I be looking in?

Are you on a well.

If so it sounds like you pressure tank is waterlogged.

Well I should have seen that it was only on the kitchen faucet.

"Somethign" is moving around and blocking the flow.

Does it affect both hot and cold? If so then look at the aireator ('nozzle' and screen on the end of the spout) and the divertor valve for the sprayer.

Could have several answers. As far as trouble shooting I would suggest you disconnect the supply line to the faucet after you shut off supply by using valve under the sink them with it disconnected aim it into a bucket and turn it on. See if the pulsing water supply happens then. If not then I would replace faucet. If it still happens turn off main water valve and remove shut off valve under sink and clean it or replace it.;
Hope that helps.
