Question about Acura TL
My 3.5 Acura 1997 jerks when going up hill and the check engine like flashes . Once I start to accelerate it stops flashing and jerking but the check engine like stays on the whole time I 'am driving the car.
check the transmission fluid. if its not this then I would suggest taking it in to a parts store to have the codes pulled on it..jm

take it to a shop and have them run a diagnostic on it so you know for sure whats wrong whether its the trac control or the transmission

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...

i think this is impossible to tell you without being able to drive the car.things are more complicated then we would like. the fact that taking off slowly also causes this jerking seems to eliminate an enginge missfire which would be the first thing that would probably cause jerking. does it feel like the rear prakes are sticking on thi can be a problem with the parking brake cables rusted inside ther casing.four wheel drive problems could be a u jouint or drive shaft issue. have a mechanic at least drive it to get som feel for where the problem is.

Testimonial: "thanks, even though you get a free scan i still need someone who knows what they are talking about to explain the OBDII codes."
Leave the car at some shop or dealer,don't use it like that
If a shop doesn't seem to find things, there usually are
several reasons why
Try another more capable shop & spend some time
there,so you both understand the time to be applied
to diagnosing,your costs & the shop has to welcome
you into the service bay & prove they have the technology,
tools & personel to work on your car problems
