Putting your foot in the gas? Is it opening the throttle a little or kicking up to 2000 +rpm's? Opening a litlle would be clean the throttle body, idle air control motor, and the mas air flow sensor. If you go to 200+ rpm's do a compression check. Yuo would have a dead cylinder. Or several. Blown head gasket?

SOURCE: 99 malibu horn honks shifting into D or R

wires from the horn run down the steering column and pass the area where the shift linkage is also in the column. its either a loose wire, or a chafted wire inside the column. Be VERY careful working on this if you have airbags. they must be disarmed before you work on the column.

SOURCE: Jerking/jumping while driving

An automobile's ignition system may work fine while idling but fail during acceleration. Problem areas to be inspected include the spark plugs, spark plug wires and vacuum hoses. Car owners should look for spark plugs that are covered in oil or sediment or damaged, spark plug wires that have damaged insulation, and vacuum hoses that are unplugged or leaking. Fuel Problems

  • The use of a fuel additive that contains both fuel injector cleaner and water remover can fix minor problems due to water in the gas and fuel injector clogs. A fuel pressure gauge can also be used to test the injection system to assure proper pressure.
While most acceleration problems are likely caused by problems with the plugs, wires or fuel, a variety of sensors and other components can cause similar problems. a bad tps ( throttle position sensor ) will cause causes transmission shift issues, bucking, jerking, idle surging, engine cutoff, hesitation on takeoff, and surging while going down highway.
good-day ! check and or clean maf sensor if need be. you can by the maf sensor cleaner at most auto parts stores.

hmmm. it sounds like either your motor mount or transmission mounts are bad. check for rips in the rubber and have a friend hold the brake while shifting it from park to reverse etc

Shake ya sterring wheel from side to side and try turning ya key. The lock could be stuck and needs to be freed up. This should do the trick.

When i shifts from 1st to 2nd it jurks hard and


you may not have trans problem at all. most of the time your motor mounts when worn out or broken can cause a hard ****. Put your car into gear with your foot on the brake and give some gas abrubtly and see if your engine jumps. do the same in reverse. remember to use the brake and have your hood open to see if your motor jumps.

My car jumps when I put it into gear, but it drives fine.


open your hood, have someone shift from reverse to drive with the parking brake set and watch how much the engine moves, my suspicion is that one or more of the engine mounts are broken, making it look like the engine wants to jump out of its 'home'- moving more the an inch or so then going into gear...pinpoint the broken mount and replace. :)

Mini van wont go into gear only park


it sounds like the transmission linkage may have came loose.the brake has to be depressed to make it go into gear.so check this switch.there are inexpensive repair manuals at just about any auto parts store.(around $25) the manual will show you where these components are located.
