I have a 2002 santa fe with 144000 miles and while driving it's starting to jerk what could this be?

If it happens throughout accelerating it sounds like a slip in the trans ($1,000). If it jerks & clucks when you let off the gas and reapply the gas it is most likely wear in the rear differential ($500). My 2002 Santa Fe GLS AWD needed both at about 180,000 miles... but that was all it ever needed.

Sold it with 291,912 miles. The new owner has driven it now twice to Charlotte and once to Orlando without an issue. Great car!

I have a 2002 Mazda MPV. When I start it and drive it revs really high. Sometimes i can take my foot off the gas and it will still accelerate, A LOT! Also when it does this it shifts really hard and there...

The transmission is slipping, have it checked for low fluid level, if that is ok then you need the transmission rebuilt or replaced with a factory rebuilt exchange unit.

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!

My car jerks every now and then as if Im pressing the gas and taking my foot off. Also, can I put transmission fluid where the dipstick is?

You have a 3.8 so it is probably due for a new set of plug wires if they haven't been replaced in the past few years. That will most probably solve the miss, You add trans fluid into the tube toward the back of the engine, it has a red handle-you need a funnel, and do this when the car has been driven a while so the transmission is warmed up, and the car in idling, on level ground.

Rear end slipping?

Differentials are direct-drive devices -- they cannot slip.

This really sounds like erratic shifting taking place right at the shift point. Gentle acceleration is the trickiest shift for an automatic. When accelerating harder, the transmission shifts more abruptly, which is a much easier shift to complete.

I have a 2004 Impala that transmission jerks into gears periodically when doing a bit of stopping and starting off. Have talked to other Impala owners,and some have had tranny problems also. It just...

This is common problems to the transmission when the fluid is getting to dirty and the transmission fluid and filter needs to be replaced. The transmission fluid and filter should be replaced every 45,000 miles to ensure there is no dirt causing the shift servos from binding. The other thing to is that when the transmission fluid get's to dirty, the fluid gets thicker. It retains fluid retention which can cause conflicts in the transmission sensors. What your experiencing is, your transmission is not shifting back to first gear and sticking in to 2nd gear. When you get on the gas peddle, the transmission sensors realize that it needs to be in 1st gear, so as the engine's RPM goes up and the transmission drops back to 1st, you get the jerking condition which will in turn cause you a $2,300.00 transmission replacement. For now when starting off from a stop, let the engine creep forward on it's own first to ensure that the transmission has shifted in to 1st gear. Then get on the gas peddle lightly till you have the transmission serviced. $100.00 transmission service is better then $2,300.00 transmission replacement. Good luck and do not have a transmission fluid flush, just filter and fluid replacement.

While driving the car is jerking 90 lincoln town car

This is a common happening, but it is not necessarily a problem. What happens is when you are driving, the transmission is locked and providing as much power to the wheels as possible. When you take your foot off the accelerator, the transmission unlocks and goes into a passive state to prevent bogging down the engine. When you hit the gas again too soon, you feel a "THUMP" which is the transmission going back into the locked position. While this causes no short-term damage, if you do it often enough, it could cause increased wear for the transmission.

Had the same problem, it turned out to be the sensor switch on the transmission. I was also told to disconnect the battery overnight so all can reset but that did not help in my case.
