I would to know if a bad transmission speed sensor can cause the car to jerk when you shift into drive or reverse


Hard to tell without knowing what year, make, and model of vehicle we are working on here. A speed sensor would not cause this, but bad engine or trans mounts could, or possibly a sticking valve body in the transmission.

Check engine light on when i step on gas hard truck jerks


engine lights refer to the engine AND the transmission faults. I would think that when you got the light there was a problem in the transmission ( probably the transmission control module TCM) and by stomping the gas you have a shift change problem causing the jerking.

1999 chevy suburban k1500 4wd eletrical problems?


As far as the speedometer not working and the transmission not shifting; I'd check the speed sensor connection on the tail of the transmission and follow the wiring to see if it is cut somewhere. If the PCM doesn't get a signal from the speed sensor, the transmission won't shift. Did the auto have wires get chewed by rats after sitting?

Jerking motion


Make and model, year, engine, transmission? 2wd/4wd, ever been wrecked, etc.
could be drivetrain parts such as c.v. or U joints.
could be fuel system clog somewhere.
could be a bad sensor.
We will need more detailed information.

97 ECLIPSE JERKING AND POWER LOSS WHILE DRIVING


could be a number of things (throttle position sensor, crank position sensor, bad injector, faulty coil, bad plugs,etc) i would take it to a shop and have them scan it .If the scanner comes up with multiple problems and your forced to start "throwing parts " at it, remember most electrical parts cannot be returned once opened, so it could get expensive.shops sometimes have what i call "test pilots", properly working parts to put in to see if it corrects the problem through a process of elimination. this is one way a shop can actually save you money.

Has anyone had a 2004 kia rio with a p0712 ? what was your fix ?


This would mean (a) the transmission fluid temp sensor is bad, or (b) the computer is bad, or
(c) the connector or wires to the sensor have corroded/been damaged somehow.

Definition of your code:
P0712 Transmission Fluid Temperature Sensor Circuit Low Input

which means that the voltage coming from the sensor is read by the computer as too low,
which also means that it could be zero. Zero voltage can happen if the transmission fluid temperature
sensor connector has been unpluged, or one of the wires to the sensor have been cut/damaged/corroded.
If there has been recent repair activity to the car, then its possible that this sensor's wires or
connector has been disconnected/cut/damaged somehow.

I have a 1997 trans port when u are driving it jerks and the faster u get the worse the jerking gets but when it is setting still its fine. when u go 10 or 15 miles it starts doing it so bad it turns off


You have bad motor or transmission mounts check it with someone stepping on the gas and the brake and have them put it in forward then reverse watch how much engine play there is or how far it travels back and forth if it's more than a half inch that’s your problem, if not post here and will give you the next procedure to check.

My car has eratic idle and acceleration jerking. It is a 2005 landrover freelander with 52,000 miles. Automatic transmission with a 2.5L engine.


It could be a few things. The EGR, IAC, TP sensor, vacuum leak, MAF sensor, air filter, bad ground to engine. Is the engine light on? If so were any codes retreived from it? What have you done or looked at so far?

My car cuts off at times right after it is cranked. At other times when stopped at a stop light but starts back up. Also, when driving it is hesitating and jerking.


It sounds like you have a bad MAF (Mass Airflow Sensor). This is in your air inlet tube, pull this out and check to see if there is any corrosion on it. If is one that has a coiled exposed wire, then ensure that the wire is not broke.
