Sounds like possibly low-grade gas causing knock, or preignition.
You may have corroded connections to the knock sensor so it is not working correctly. I would take it buy your favorite auto parts store and ask them to read the ECU error codes.

My car jerks while changing gears


Hi,

Thanks for contacting Fixya.com
Poor acceleration is because the engine timing is wrong i.e. the ignition is early or late.
A flashing check engine light means that something serious is wrong with the vehicle and you should not be driving it. Being that the vehicle sputters and jerks under acceleration, it is assumed that you have a failure in your ignition system. Always have the car scanned when your check engine light comes on to obtain diagnosetic computer codes. Most common failure is basic maintenance items, Spark plugs and wires. Simple enough to replace, and relativly cheap. Ignition coils, ignition module, and crankshaft sensor would also cause a severe misfire. again... both pretty simple to change, but these items cost more. Start by having the vehicle checked with a scan tool first.
Aloso check distributor timing and next timing belt depending on year and how many miles on this car you may need to replace the timing belt it can be a cause too.

Let us know if you have something more to know else please accept the suggestion.
Thank You.

2005 honda accord diesel, Jerking when accelerate


1: Change your fuel filters and bleed the air out of it.
2: Check all rubber hoses for loose hose clamps and
cracks or leaks.
Almost certainly in one or both of the two points above.

My car is jerking while accelerating and reaching certain RPM


I would look for a fault in the ignition system such as a cracked spark plug. Might need a scope check to put your finger on the problem

Trouble Accelerating and brakes are a little loose


Does it make a hissing noise when you push on the break peddel? or do you hear what sounds like a whiseling noise when its at idle? thats all signs of a vacume leak, it sounds me to be a bad vacume booster Witch will acount for you having to push hard on the break peddel, and it running bad when you step on the gas.

1997 Honda Civic EX (automatic) jerks while accelerating?


Check your wires, plugs and coils. I think it is an ignition problem myself. Something is breaking down under a load. My guess would be a bad coil or wire, the hard starting could be a symtem of this also, As I first read your description I was thinking maybe a leaking fuel injector or faulty fuel injector, but I believe it is in the ignition system. I hope this Helps! Merry Christmas!

You didn't describe the nature of the 'noise' which is probably why you haven't received a prior reply.
If it is missing, it might be injector problems but the injectors themselves are not loud enough to be heard over the other engine noise.
Spark plugs, ignition wiring, fuel filters cannot 'make noise.' Any of those can cause the car to run rough but not cause any specific noise unless it is related to the engine misfiring and in that case, it wouldn't just be a source of noise but also inadequate acceleration and a prominent jerking of the car at low RPMs. Carbon buildup is the likely cause although causing any engine to lug (drive in a higher gear at low speeds) can damage bearings in the engine, creating excessive bearing play and a knocking noise under some conditions. Also, a failed exhaust manifold gasket or associated pipes being cracked can really cause a racket.
Without us hearing the noise, it's kind of hard to diagnose it, but the above might give you some guidance.
