Sounds to me like it could be your timing belt. It happens alot it manual cars, especially when you tend to drive hard and at high RPM's. Check it out.....it could save u alot of money

03 chevy venture. Van stops going and jerks while going up a hill have to back down and reroute also have to manually shift from first gear to 2nd to 3rd ect. ANYONE GOT ANY IDEA


severe engine misfire , Plugs , plug wires , possible plugged catalytic converter . Shifting problem possibly bad shift solenoids inside transmission , With all your problems isn't the check engine light on ? Your best bet is to take that vehicle to a qualified repair shop .

Kia sportage 2007 sputters when I drive jerks and this am as I tried to speed up it didn't seem to want to shift up just reving ??!! I changed allready pump belts and do many other parts what could it be ?...


sputters in the context if engine, means MISFIRING, is it?

for a transmission, they dont sputter. sorry

but can jerk, or snatch, (being caused by gears engaging way to late)

(aka, harsh shifting) the opposite of slip

but it can slip then engage, causes a jerk. or harsh shifting.

see?

they do 100 things wrong, mostly never to sputter.

they don\'t shift up or down

they slip. (bad tranny)

if engine sputters, its tune up time, (posted like 10,000 times here)

if the transmission has issues, have real mech test it and tell you

all the symptoms, and possible ideas.

why not?

the A/T is a very very complex electro /mechanical device.



sputter is a word best for engines. like chain saw with a bad spark plug it sputters along and stalls.

does your car stall?

What is wrong with my car when it jerks in drive


jerks when?

moving the shift lever. with hand?

moving car. in gear,name the gear, drive, L or reverse?

jerks from, 1 to 2nd gear, 2nd to 3? or ? (or when IT down shifts)

pretend we are blind (we are) and cant drive car,(hopeless) and

tell us exactly what works and dont work driving.

hot /cold engine, fast /slow/ accelerating/ decelerating, up hills and what gears.



if engine is hot, is your idle at 800 RPM parked, in park.

y/s

if not the idle controls are out of control and when you shift to drive

IT will jerk. this is an engine problem.

there are lots of other symptoms.

Our car broke down and the guy that hauled it started raising the bed to get it off and my husband didn't have it out of gear, he jerked it out and broke something in the key switch and now we can't move...


Before you tear the steering colomn apart, check at the top of the transmission. Follow the shift cable, it is right on top near the rear, and make sure it just hasn't popped of the manual shift lever of the tranny.

My 1988 F150 automatic won't shift down when i go to stop.


CHECK THE VEHICLE SPEED SENSORS. ONE IS IN THE REAR END ON TOP OF THE DIFFERENTIAL, AND THE OTHER IS ON THE TRANS. HOPE YOU DON'T HAVE A E4OD TRANS. THEY ARE JUNK.
