best advice is dont go 40mph in 5th gear... if you are going up a hill at 40mph in 5th gear i have no doubt that it is jerking, your putting too much stress on the engine. shift up to 4th or 3rd you will be fine. 5th gear is an overdrive gear. 55+mph
my 2000 ford escort se is bucking & jerking like a horse,the muffler shop says it's the manufacture fuel air control metering,where is it located & how much will it cost?.where would i go 2 have it fixed.or can my husband fix it?
While this can come from several sources, a 'normal' misfire from a single plug can cause that.
Another possibility is the idle air control may not be functioning as it should.
You didn't mention it but we can assume you have an automatic transmission.
Standing with the brakes on and the tranny in drive, does load down the engine somewhat (drag) so nearly anything out of whack can cause the rough idle.
try autozone.com to see if they have your car listed for diagrams pictures and step by step instructions if your car is not listed then try your local library they have all the car manuals and even copy them for you
your fuel pump only runs for 2 seconds with the key on, unless it is running. Safety reasons. It runs during starting all the time, and all the time if engine is running.
check fuel pump relay in driver kick panel and inertia switch reset in trunk. Se owner manual for info.
For lwthegirl; invest <$20 in an aftermarket service manual from Haynes or Chilton.
They are available from any chain parts stores and will pay you back with time many times over.
For the 'guest' I would recommend the same since it will show you where the speed sensor is hidden.
There are several possibilities; wheels, drive shafts, etc. essentially anywhere that is related to road speed and independent of engine or transmission.
