    My 2009 Kia Spectra does the same thing, the engine suddenly revs itself and lurches forward. Also when I start the car and am still in park whether the car is cold or not the RPMs go really high and you can hear the car rev itself. When I put it into reverse it dies down a bit. Lately my car has been pretty shaky on the freeway and even turned itself off and the check engine light has come on a few times, but when I try turning it back on again it seems to work fine for a few days, but the lurching forward happens a lot.

This is due to two speed sensors that are located on the Auto Box
take it to a garage who will plug a computer into a special plug under your dash board sometime these can be reset with the computer but more often than not have to be replaced you can either do this yourself if your handy with tools and don't mind struggling and getting a bit dirty or let the garage do it, the unit's don't cost a lot but garage charges do.

Good luck

Hi,
It might have a partially blocked fuel line or ait intake supply.

  • Try to check your fuel filter.
  • The seive on the fuel pump.
  • The fuel injectors might be dirty.
  • The air cleaner might be clogged
or the fuel sensor might be malfunctioning.
Try to check the compression, it might be loosing compression when you demand the engine to move the vehicle.

SOURCE: How do you replace a Drivers side headlight bulb 2006 kia spectra

Helps to remove the battery, but small ahbds can do it.

Directly behind the lens is a big round cap ... twist it off. The bulb is held in place with a spring that locks in to a notch in the holder. When handling the new bulb, don't touch the glass. The oil from your skin will cause it to shatter when turned on.

CHECK ENGINE LIGHTS ONLY COMES ON IF THE COMPUTER PICKS UP A PROBLEM IN THE CAR. THERE ARE NEVER A FALSE REASON WHY THAT LIGHT WILL APPEAR. SOMETHING AS SMALL AS A GAS CAP LOOSE CAN TRIP THAT LIGHT. USUALLY AUTO- ZONE OR PEP BOYS WILL CHECK IT FOR FREE,BUT THEY WILL ONLY ASSUME WHAT THE PROBLEM MY BE.

You need to have the transmission inspected. If it has over 60,000 miles on it and the fluid in the transmission has never been changed do that first.

What could be wrong if the car jerks hard


That is a pretty wide-open question for which there is no single answer. WHEN does it ****? When you put it into gear? While you are driving a slow speeds? When you are driving at high speeds? Does it **** as the transmission is shifting gears? Does it **** only when you put it into gear? Does it **** only in forward gears? Does it **** only in reverse? Does it **** in both the forward gears and reverse? Does it **** when making hard turns? Does it **** only when you accelerate? Does it **** when you are applying the brakes? Does it **** only when it is first started up? Does it **** after the engine has had time to reach operating temperature? Does the **** go away after driving a while? Etc., Etc.....

2002 Kia Spectra Jerking Problem


check engine light comes of when the computer gets a sensor reading out of range. This could be an oxygen sensor(most likely) which will reduce performance of the engineand cause jerking. Most auto parts stores-autozone,advanced auto or O'rieley-will scan computer and tell you which sensor triggered check engine light. good luck
