SOURCE: Jerking while driving

If you park your vehicle for a long time, you run the risk of having contaminated fuel in the tank. This happened to a car my wife purchased, and it was the last thing I found. It proved to be the problem. What you need to do is remove the fuel from the tank and then have the tank flushed. Fill it with fresh fuel and replace the fuel filter.

I have the same problem. Low rpm a **** or a shudder, high rpm runs fine. Also, at slow acceleration it will cut out then suddenly get its power back. I am looking into it being the being the TPS sensor (Throttle Position Sensor). I think these things can get dead spots. If a check engine light comes on, and you have a misfire, have the code read, chances are you need to change the ignition coil pack. It is just a matter of knowing which cylinder is misfiring.

could be the iac valve, idle air control valve.
at the beginning check for air leaks, a scanner will be enough for to know the reason,

I have a 2006 cts and theres been some jerking while i have been accelerating and driving for some time now should i change spark plugs and do a full tune up?

run fault codes before you waste money. The ECM will keep the engine in tune until a sensor fails so find out exactly has failed and fix that first.

Jerks and looses power on hills and flat land no engine light comes on what can be wrong?

When you said it feels like its not getting enough gas, you may be right.
Since you have replaced the fuel filter, and you are not getting a check engine light, my suggestion would be to check fuel pressure with a gauge. The fuel pump may be weak.

Hard downshift on 2003 cadillac cts. When I coast the car without breaking the car jerks as it passes 20mph and 15 mph. It also happens when I gas the car. It feels like i'm running something over

actually you have to change transmission fluid every 75000 miles and this car have a dip stick it on the transmission pan you seek the professional help because they need to replaced the filter also and do the flash for bather performance

I have a 2007 cadillac cts. My wife and I were in the car last night trying to figure out some of the features and it said battery voltage is low. We tried to crank it and it would not crank. Later it...

So lets figure out first if the altinator is not chargine enough or if the battery is bad. As for the car jerking when braking that could just be brakes or transmission.
