Question about Cars & Trucks
About 2 months ago we mistakenly filled the tank with unleaded petrol instead of the usual LRPetrol. About a month later the vehicle jerks when in second gear. Is this serious and is it related to the nleaded petrol?

SOURCE: My Mazda MPV randomly begins to
the gas cap and check engine light thing are related in terms of the EVAP system, or the evaporative emisions system. This is NOT where your surge, or "chug" is coming from. The surge could be coming from a Exhaust Gas Recurculation valve that is starting to bind or "hang up" a bit. DO you notice this happens more at lights, or when coming to a stop? if so it could be an idle air control vavle.

Yes there are Pitman shaft over-center preload and worm thrust bearing preload.There are special procedures and tools needed for both of these and the steering gear needs to be out of vehicle and drained.Hope this helps.

when it jerks during gear changes it could be a couple of things.
First of all, check the fluid level in the automatic transmission.
Secondly, check the mounts for the engine that they're tight and secure and if they are then
Thirdly, ask the transmission shop if the torque converter is bad in it.
The torque converter could be locked up somehow causing this jerking and I wouldn't be surprised if the transmission shop lists a recall on it.
Actually, even if there is NO recall on it, tell the transmission shop that put the transmission in to check it out, and if possible rectify it under warranty.
I wish you luck in getting this fixed correctly.
