Question about Daihatsu Terios
Terios irregular jerking whilst driving, sometimes in high gears (4-5) on highway, and sometimes in lower gears, especially after a long trip. Take it in to garage to check when it comes back it runs fine for about 2 weeks then start again. Also have had the shocks replaced twice already - tests show they shot again and bad knocking on back left and exhaust bracket banging through wheel cover. This car's only got 19 000kms on the clock

You the beginnings of what is known as the reverse slam. If caught early enough it is fixable. However, most times a rebuilt valve body is in order. I do it for around $200. For the record any late 1992-2002 valve body will work, those are the type II. Type I won't work and is 1992-early 1992 years.

Could be fuel or electrical related. Since you may not know the history, this may take a while.
Any amount of smoke from exhaust? White, Blue, Black?
Start with most obvious and inexpensive:
1. Fuel filer clogged (replace fuel filter).
2. Could be the ECM (Electronic Control Module). It controls the ignition spark timing.
A few other things... consider other expert solutions...
