It sounds like you might need to replace your motor mounts, or get a tier allignement done. The allignment you cannot do yourself but the motor mounts you can this requires you to place a jack under you engine and undoing the motor mounts then replace them and take away jack.

SOURCE: A light comes on in my car that says oil pressure

If the light is only turning on during acceleration or deceleration and then goes off, this is normal. If the light is constant, and you are sure you have oil that is up to the "full" or "max" level on the dipstick while hot, then it might point to a faulty oil pump or worn gaskets that will no longer prevent the oil from staying in place in the engine. Is this light accompanied by a check engine light. If so what is the code. You may also have a faulty oil sensor. Hope this helps

SOURCE: I have a 2006 Chevy Impala 3.5L. Lopes while driving.

A code P0011 refers to the VVT (variable valve timing) or VCT (variable camshaft timing) components and the car's PCM (powertrain control module, also called an ECM). That consists of a few different components but the P0011 DTC specifically refers to the camshaft (cam) timing. In this case, if the cam timing is above a set limit (over-advanced), the engine light will be illluminated and the code will be set. The "A" camshaft is either the intake, left, or front camshaft.
A P0011 DTC trouble code may be caused by one or more of the following:

  • Incorrect camshaft timing
  • Wiring problems (harness/wiring) in intake timing control valve control solenoid system
  • Continuous oil flow to VCT piston chamber
  • Failed timing valve control solenoid (stuck open)
This DTC code is a result of a mechanical fault of the VCT unit or related components, so there is no need for electrical diagnosis. Refer to vehicle specific repair manual to perform component tests for the VCT unit. Notes: Dealer techs have advanced tools and the ability to follow detailed troubleshooting steps, including the ability to test components using a scan tool.
Thank you for using fixya

My 2005 dodge neon jerks when i accelerate from a full stop.


Hello,
There are a few different problem areas in your vehicle that come to mind as I was reading your complaint. I will go over the wire diagram for this neon and see exactly what we could be dealing with. Most importantly, I see your check engine light is coming on. If you can scan it while its on and get the codes I will be able to tell you pretty much exactly what is causing this jerking issue. Hopefully its a simple fix, could be under the hood, mechanical or electrical. Ive seen these pcm's fail in the past also. Advanced auto or autozone typically scans codes for free. Please Advise

Why car wont pick up speed when i get to 40mph then jerks and pick up speed


Does it down shift appropriately when accelerating? Normally when you stomp on the gas while in a high gear (travelling at 40mph), the transmission will downshift to a lower gear giving the car much more torque. This can cause the car to jolt or jerk forward and accelerate suddenly.



If this is way off base and you\'re experiencing something else, please let me know

All the above problems were happening to my truck, and the engine light never did come on. Finally changed the O2 sensor, and it runs like new again.

I have a 2005 volvo xc90 t6 that is jerking when accelerating and in idle. It doesn't so it every time but is steadily increasing and began about 2 weeks ago. Check engine light will blink when on...


A blinking check engine light is the warning of an engine misfire that can cause damage to the catalytic converter. Check car by diagnostic tool and keep car well.

2004 Audi A4 1.8 - jerks/jolts while accelerating from 0-20 mph


It sounds like there may be an issue with your ignition system.

Check the ignition wires, distributor cap, spark plugs.

Emitting white spoke also won't accelerate properly


I have worked a similar situation before, the white smoke that you see more than likely mean that you have a blown head gasket. That's antifreeze that blowing out the tail pipe, with a blow gasket it can cause the vehicle to **** and have poor acceleration. The sudden jerking motion can trigger the TCS- traction control system. Its almost like the vehicle is slipping when it **** like that, So I do believe that you need to replace the head gasket, and not a complete overhaul. Good Luck
