    I had the coils replaced and solved the problem, so car now runs fine, no more jerking or hesitation in accelerator.

Starts fine and the engine will idle then it will die from idle try to accelerate and it seems like its out of fuel replaced feul filter no change friend says its the catyletic converter but it happened...


here are the converter symtoms: decreased low rpm power, engine runs a little hotter then normal at cruising speed, exhaust leaks near header, bucking or jerking during accelerating, cats exterior surface temp cooler near outlet. if you suspect the cat of being bad take it to a garage, to find out for sure if it is, have a good day !!

Car chugs and jerks like crazy while cruising


Determine whether the jerking is engine or transmission related. One way to determine if it is the transmission lock up converter is acting erratically is to down shift out of OD. And see if jerking persist. If it goes away suspect transmission to have problems with torque converter or TCC solenoid . If it doesn't go away determine whether or not the engine sounds to be misfiring. If so vehicle may require a tune up. Many vehicles can be diagnosed for free at your local Auto Zone.

It does it more uphill because the engine needs more fuel. Its starving. How about replacing the fuel filter.

I have a 2006 Hyundai Matrix 1.6 GSI petrol. Automatic. When cruising at 4o mph it starts jerking and seems like it has a problem selecting the right gear. Also at around 60 mph it jerks when I accelerate.


My experience with Hyundai vehicles strongly suggests you have a bad TPS (Throttle Position Sensor). Replace it... see if that CURES it. (OR, you can have a qualified technician bench test it to see if it is defective). Your solution.

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.
