Why Engine stalls when put in gear


There are a number of reasons that this could happen. If there is no "Check Engine" light involved, then it may be difficult to assess. When you drop it into gear, does it stop violently, with a jerk, or does it sort of falter, stumble, and stall? It it stops with a jerk, then you may have a problem in the transmission with the overdrive lock-up. If it simply stumbles and stalls, then its more likely and engine management issue. It seems as though you should have some sort of Check Engine issue if it is the latter, though.

Jerks and looses power on hills and flat land no engine light comes on what can be wrong?


When you said it feels like its not getting enough gas, you may be right.
Since you have replaced the fuel filter, and you are not getting a check engine light, my suggestion would be to check fuel pressure with a gauge. The fuel pump may be weak.

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.

Check engine light


Go to Autozone and have them scan the engine code. Post what you find. My guess is an O2 sensor.
