SOURCE: my 2008 dodge avenger jerks when i come to a stop any idea what it could be.?

Jerks coming to a stop as in engine jerks, or does it seem like the brakes are jerking. When you leave off the pedal does it stop jerking? If it does it is probably warped rotors. A lot of new cars have this problem, my theory is that the brake pads they are using are way too hard. They put way too much heat into the rotor and warp it. Of course the rotors are none too heavy either. I think it is all in an effort to reduce weight in the vehicle.

If it is doing all that, the check engine light should be SCREAMING at you. One of the first things that needs to be done is to determine if this is an engine problem or a transmission problem. I recommend beginning diagnosis by performing a scan of your onboard computer network.
Please note that your vehicle is equipped with two seperate modules: The Engine Control Module (ECM) and the Transmission Control Module (TCM) Please note that MOST generic OBD code readers CANNOT access the TCM to check for codes (Including those that are used by many aftermarket parts stores as a sales tool to sell you a bunch of parts that you don't need). The only transmission code you are likely to get from the ECM is P0700, which is an informational code only that lets you know that there are fault codes stored in the TCM that may affect the emmissions levels of the vehicle.

Engine chugs sometimes


The sensor that signals the onboard computer sends signal it is odd center. This can mean a twisted crank shaft however mine has been going on and off sometimes staying off for months . This would not be a twisted crankshaft but sensor is defective or the onboard computer needs analyzed and maybe replaced..

2000 Dodge stratus - runs ok but at times will "chug" or misfire driving down highway - think its an electrical issue as it will almost "act up" when using cruise, turn signals, air conditioning, etc. ALSO...


You should still take it and get the computer scanned for trouble codes.
If the check engine light comes on for more than 10 seconds there should be codes set.

My 1996 4 cylinder, manual trans, dodge avenger buckles/jerks while driving after 20 - 30 minutes. Engine light is on - multiple misfires. Performed cylinder pressure test, each cylinder is 160 psi....


on the side of the engine near the oil filter is the crankshaft position sensor. some time those get heat sensitive .noamaly the sensor is not to pricey. so its more cost effective to just replace it.

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.
