The jerking and shuddering at 45-50 mph seems like it could be a transmission/torque converter problem. Check your transmission fluid. Make sure it is at the right level, and that it is not dark or burnt. It should be a bright red or pink.

SOURCE: Hesitation or stumble during acceleration

take your car for a tune up
if they are carburetor type motors you may need your carbie cleaned and a tune up
if you clean it your self with carbie cleaner it may increase in idle speed this is nothing to worries about it is a simple adjustment
with a carburetor type motor they tend to idle higher when their cold this is the automatic choke kicking in and normally it should happen till the car is a bit warmer and the accelerator has been depresses
although a car should idle at 800 rpm my paddok car dose when it is cold it idles at 1200rpm i like it this way as the car warms up quicker as i will not drive a car while it is cold
hope this helps

SOURCE: 2007 Lincoln MKZ, very intermittent transmission hesitation

This is going to be either a programing issue in the transmission control module or an main control valve body concern. This vehicle is under warranty for 48 months or 50000 miles so I would have my local dealer take a look at it.
Ford has a new techincal service bulletin out on a concern similar to what you are describing. It states that if vehicle has less then 20000 miles to reprogram the PCM and TCM, if it has over 20000 miles they recommend to replace the main conrol valve body. The TSB number is 08-24-01

SOURCE: 2000 toyota corolla hesitates when you hit the gas.

i would check your fuel filter and air filter first if they are dirty then i would change them. and if it still does it then it might be one of the sensors on your throtttle body. like your tps sensor or the iac valve or it could be your mas sensor you can also clean these with some throttle body cleaner and mass air flow cleaner that you can pick up at any auto parts store

After your discription of P0300 and P1305, would this cause the car to surge and jerk after it warms up?


This points towards the number 2 cylinder ignition coil or ignitor circuit malfunctioning. If it is intermittent, your car will have and lose power, making the engine run like a bucking bronco. A diagnosis is in order, it could be a wiring issue or a bad spark plug causing the symptom. Could also be ignition coil or ignition module. Should be a quick repair. 25315923-dz1fkxf1fwolart5ai0divhk-5-0.jpg

My 1991 Toyota Corolla drives fine and then suddenly it starts to hesitate.


mine did the same thing and it was oxygen sensor
since engine light came on there should be an error code
on computer.Get a diagnostic checker or take to a garage and have them hook uo to the diag connector. I bought a diagnostic checker few years ago and it has come in very handy
sure hope this helps!!

Hi guys, I have a 1989 toyota corolla fx-gt, and when i start it up in the morning, it idles at around 1300-1400 rpm, but after a while, drops to around 1100. When the engine is warm, and has been driven...


first, try to clean your throtle body with a good cleaner an a tooth brush, open buter fly and clean all around, front an rear, when starting it hold your gas pedal down until it starts letgo quickly but keep it running at 2500rpm until engine clears(some smoke may be heavy) this will help with idle problems and clean some carbon from valves and combustion chamber,.second your egr valve may be gettin partially stuck open, disconect hose from top of it, use a small bolt to plug vacum hose and drive it normally if problem doesnot occurs you need a new egr valve,
good luck.
