    I have the a problem. Has there been a solution found for this yet. The truck jerks and cut off at any given time.

    Another common problem with these vehicles is an ignition coil can fail. Make the vehicle run horrible. Lack of power, sputtering, and rough idle. This problem can occur intermittently as well. You might not be able to get a check engine code to be thrown, however it can still be on of the individual ignition coils has gone out. If you drive the vehicle long enough in the state, it should throw a check engine code which will indicate which cylinder is having issues. Change out the bad ignition coil and spark plug and should be good as new

Had same problem: cutting out at low rpm, jerking, a huge clunk or shudder at higher speed (like transmission was going out), and rough idle. All these symptoms were intermittent.

CHECK THE FUEL FILTER!! Changed the fuel filter and thing runs fine!!

What could cause jerking and stalling at the same place on my route every week or so on my 92 buick century 3.3


How long since a tune up? Definitely add some fuel injector cleaner to the gas tank...maybe 2 bottles...I prefer Luca Oil injector cleaner...Walmart sells this the cheapest...also sludge in tank? Add a bottle of HEET to the gas tank to help dry up moisture,,,water...Change air filter and clean out (spray) throttle body...near the air filter inlet...also spray out mass air flow sensor...be sure to use MASS Air flow sensor spray only...does not damage the sensor...better mileage, smooth idle...hope this helps.

Car dies while driving, has full tank of gas, but all power dies in the car as well, including hazard lights


If the lights are flickering I would be checking for a loose or dirty battery connection. If the power to the cpu is intermittent ( indicated by flickering lights ) that is why the engine dies

No check engine light on until it stalls out. While driving around town and approaching stop sign/light, sometimes car will stall out. I also notice that my fuel gauge dips down about 1/4 tank and then...


You didn't say how much fuel is in the tank when this happens. Some of these old GM cars will starve for fuel if the tank is near empty and you are braking or stopping with the car facing downhill. It could be rust or scale in the fuel tank clogging the screen around the fuel pump inlet. Sometimes, putting cleaner in the tank of an older car will only cause more debris to loosen up from the inside of the tank and make the problem worse. If the problem gets worse, I would guess tht a new fuel pump/sloat assembly is in order. You may have to have the tank removed and cleaned or replacedd with a new one to prevent the problem from reocurring.

Unable to pump gas


This problem is caused by the fuel tank vent pipe being restricted, usually it is kinked, replace the filler pipe vent.

1993 sentra jerking problems.


I wanted to just give a suggestion...do you go to the same gas station to get gas? My sentra ran horrible because I kept going to this same gas station. My gas would get low and it would start cutting off and trying to cut off. I let my fuel go to almost empty and then went to another gas station to fill up. It hasnt cut of for about 6 months now and I havent returned to that gas station.
