I HAVE A 93 BUICK SKYLARK CUSTOM

I just had the bearing between the drive shaft and transmission changed and the humming stopped. the first half of the drive train is connected to the second half and there is a sealed unit with a bearing in it. the whole shaft needs to be replaced, you cannot just replace the bearing.

SOURCE: car chugs and jerks like crazy while cruising

Determine whether the jerking is engine or transmission related. One way to determine if it is the transmission lock up converter is acting erratically is to down shift out of OD. And see if jerking persist. If it goes away suspect transmission to have problems with torque converter or TCC solenoid . If it doesn't go away determine whether or not the engine sounds to be misfiring. If so vehicle may require a tune up. Many vehicles can be diagnosed for free at your local Auto Zone.

You may need a tune up . When was the last time you changed plug wires and had a decent tune up that will cause a vehicle to jerk when reaching higher gears the more strain on the engine the more it will jerk!!!

02 audi A6 The car jerks with RPM up and down when put in gear. It doesn't do it in Park. What do you think?


Change the transmission fluid. VW says "lifetime fluid" but it needs to be changed at least every 80,000 miles. I used valvoline maxlife, it is synthetic and met the vw spec.

When driving at the speed of 40-50 miles my car jerks?


your car has a computer controlled fuel system.
when you take your foot off the gas above 1800 revs, no fuel goes through the injectors(saves fuel)so,when you are criusing at about 45mph,top gear,it is trying to work out fuel or no fuel,hence the jerkiness(it will do the same with cruise on) sorry to say this is a feature of all new cars............
