You need to have the codes checked. There are too many things that can cause a problem like this. It is most likely a misfire, but there are simply too many things that it could be.
Most auto parts stores and many repair shops will check them for free.
After you know them you can post back here and I can help you more.

Was driving down the road and the car went BANG and jerked real bad. It has done it one time two different days


If you have vibration, take the car and have it inspected. Suspension and drive train. If thee outr side parts look good, Have them drain the transmission and check for metal . Only thing I think of for this would be CV axles (there would vibration all the time) or internal transmission damage.

2002 Montero Sport 4X2 jerks during and after shifting into 3rd or fourth gear. Particularly bad going uphill. Not so bad during hard acceleration. Have changed fuel filter, plugs, etc. Even changed center...


Check the 'U' joints in the drive line. Check the engine/transmission mounts for damage or looseness. The real enigma is trying to determine if this is an engine or a chassis problem. If the check engine light is on, doing a scan of the computer should show engine problems. If no light, concentrate on anything in the chassis for periodic binding. Good luck!

You may have a failing Mass Air Flow sensor, a quick test is to unplug the connector and drive the truck, if it runs better well their you go, the way this works is that the engine processor has failure mode strategy build in, so it substitutes a good signal for the missing one. After that just clear the codes and replace the sensor. The other issue may be fuel pressure, check the pressure and make sure it is ok under a load, a new fuel filter would poss. cure the issue also.
