If jerking motion is felt in the steering wheel I would check the following;
1) tires, air, cracks and uneven wear.
2) check for toe in and out by moving tire up and down and side to side.
3) inspect upper and lower ball joints for play.
4) check wheel bearings.
5) check all steering joints for play,
6) grease and replace any worn parts.
7) inspect brakes for worn and stuck calipers.
8) when all is corrected get wheel alignment.

SOURCE: front end shimmy over 60 miles per hour

If you are experiencing a "shimmy" that only occurs at a certain speed, I'd suspect a tire balance issue. If it were in the alignment, the problem would manifest itself at all speeds not just at 60 mph. There's a chance that a wheel weight fell off or the tires have uneven wear. If you do have uneven wear on the tires, then you may worn front end parts that need to be dealt with. Incorrect tire pressure can cause uneven wear as well. Hope this helps.

Check wheel balance,
check steering linkages for loosness - such as tie rod ends, steering rack linkages etc,
check driveline for worn/loose joints and bearings.

DTC P1516 Throttle Actuator Control (TAC) Module Throttle Actuator Position Performance

Your vehicle has an electronic throttle body unit so it uses voltage signals to control throttle blade in the throttle body. There are a few different issues that can cause this problem.

First off there is a update for the PCM to address those codes, but you will have to take it to the dealer for that.

Second there is issues with the actuator on the throttle body binding up and causing the codes.

Third there is a yellow wire coming off the throttle body connector that breaks inside internally and cannot be seen to the naked eye. The best way to test that is to grab the wire about 5 inches from the connector and tug if it feels spongy or breaks, that

Car jerks at 65 miles per hour


could be a clogged fuel filter, if you have not, you should replace it anyway. then if still bad check flow of fuel pump. might be getting old and slow. if you have a lot of miles might need a tune up. a tune up in general about once a year is recommended anyway.

Van does fine until you reach about 45 miles per hour and you get a jerking hesitation until you reach about 50 miles per hour and it stops. doesn't do it any other time.


You may want to do a basic tune up. Plugs, wires, cap&rotor, PCV, and don't forget the fuel filter. It is a forgoten, yet sometimes vital, part of a tune up. If you have already done this within a reasonable mileage, hit me up and we'll try to figure this thing out.

Transmission Slight Jerking When Slowing & Accelerating


Have you changed the trasmission fluid and filter in your jeep lately, if not do so and that just might stop the jerking in your jeep, and if that does not do the trick you will need to have your trasmission checked out by a trasmission shop.
