Question about 1999 Toyota 4Runner

1 Answer

2002 Honda Accord. Engine does slow start and jerks

When I start the car, the engine starts idling very slowly, then starts jerking. The car will eventually stabilise but when you engage the gear, jerking starts all over. Sometimes even when it allows you drive, the jerking can start in motion. The CHECK light has remained on for some time. The local dealer here in Owerri, South East Nigeria flushed the injector system and changed the spark plugs but the problem still persits.

Sounds like you have a problem with the spark the coil may be on its way out or there may be oil in the spark plug holls shorting out the spark.
your best bet is to pull the leads out 1 at a time and and look down and check for oil if there is oil there get a new rocker cover gasket.
if no oil refit plug leads loosely and start the car remove one lead at a time slowly and look at the spark cumming out the end off the lead is it blue? if so it is ok if it is yellow and dull you have a coil problem. also check that the spark is only comming out the end of the lead as it may be comming ou the side of the lead and shorting to earth,
you can do this by slowly moving the lead around the top of the sparkl plug holl and see were the spark is comming from

be carfull no to shock your self as it herts like hell

good luck

My honda accord 94 jerks when i take off slow


there are many possible problems here. one of them is the throttle position sensor. it is nothing more than a volume switch on a cheap radio. it moves voltage from 0 to 5 v and tells the computer what you want the engine to do. When they fail usually one part of the range quits working which would produce the effect you described As i said this is just one of the possible problems but one you should rule out. Checking it is done by locating the sensor and checking output with a volt meter. maybe go to local autoparts store and read why check engine light is on It should tell you which sensor is bad if that is the problem

Please My Honda Accord 2003 model jerks and also do viberates


It sounds like something is loose...That may be causing your vibrating problems with the engine. You need to life the hood and grab anything that should be bolted down grab it and gently but firmly pull on it. If it moves then you will see it right then and there. Or it can be on the inside of the motor also. The jerking can be from bad fuel....
