Hi: Probably the problem is the electronic module of the transmision. the mechanical part of the transmision is working well. but the problem is the electronic part. You need to scan the car and chane the module.

Jerking in 2001audi a6

When does it jerk? At all speeds or just high or low speeds? It\'s not uncommon for an ignition coil to fail in these cars and that can cause a very rough idle, and rough acceleration. I would take your car to an auto parts store or dealership and have the error codes read. That will likely tell you exactly what the issue is.

Prado jerking while going up hill or jerking when accelerating

When was the last tune-up done? Should be done every 30-45KM, or depending on what your owner's manual maintenance book states.
1. Spark plugs
2. Spark plug wires
3. Fuel Filter
4. Air filter
5. Oxygen Sensor

If these have recently been replaced then do you have Check Engine Light (CEL)? If so, you'll need to get that checked by a mechanic.

Sluggish acceleration, frequent jerking and engine knock at high RPM

Sounds to me like the timing is off! it COULD be bad gas though! run that tank through, and refill, then see how it feels!

well Fuel pressure will cause this concern as with a failing fuel pump, also a misfiring engine from worn plugs or defective coils will cause any bucking/jerking if u have as you try to accelerate, but this would cause a check engine lamp. A bad Mass Air Flow sensor can also cause a poor acceleration and usually does not turn on the check engine lamp.
