It is very hard to say without being able to experience the "****" in person but if it is happening at idle and especially when the A/C is on it is most likely a misfire do to worn spark plugs...I would start with a new set of spark plugs and plug wires if they have not been changed in the last 10,000 miles or so...also make sure the spark plug gap is set to the proper spec. It could possibly be a clogging fuel injector...put a good fuel injector cleaner in before your next fill-up...hope this helps.If the 'check engine" light is on, you can get it scanned for free at some parts stores. Even if the light is not on, sometimes there are codes present to tell you what is malfunctioning w/o guessing. Start there first.

Sounds like a regular cylinder miss.
Is the check engine light on ?
Its also possible you have a pulley or something out of balance.

While driving dwn the road i hve a bad shake in my steering wheel i have a 1999 gmc yukon


it sounds like the front tires need balancing.if you drive the truck slowly(creeping down the road at about 5mph)and lightly holding the steering wheel do you feel the steering wheel moving back and forth.this could indicate a bad belt in a tire where as a wheel imbalance won`t show up at this low of a speed,but a bad belt will.also have the front end checked for worn front end components and wheel bearings,this can cause a bad shake too.

I'm not sure about the noise, but the jerking motion might be because your the center roller (located in the rear middle of the sliding door) has worn out and need to be replace. This is a will known problem.

Your problem is very hard to answer because 05-10 odyssey has so many problem with sliding door.

rear latch:
-door not to latch close
-door not to work

front latch:
-door not to open

lock actuator:
-door not to open
-door will pop when opening

window motor:
-window not to work
-door will only open half way

center roller:
-jerking motion when opening
-door kick back close while opening
-door kick back open while closing

Door motor:
-door not to work
-cause door to jam

good luck

Jerking movements when in 1st gear.


Most jerky clutches are traced to weak clutch disc coil springs.They are mounted in the clutch disc to absorb shock,but can get weak and can cause a jerky clutch.
Could also be a broken weak motor mount.
