Without having any specific vehicle information the problem is most likely caused by a dirty idle speed control valve and dirty sludged up throttle valve.

My car jerks/ hiccups when I accelerate, and the engine shakes when I turn it on.


timing belt jumped a tooth?,causing burning smell from engine overheating?????????. Out of ignition timing causes erratic/missing/jerking and possibly die. All this " may be " a coincidence from heater core repair.

When i put it in drive it jerks real hard


Inspect first the automatic transmission fluid. It may need replacing as well as the filer. Observe the jerking if it occurs on certain speed, it may just be an issue within a specific gear. Its valve may be dirty and need cleaning. This may also be cause by bad fuel lines or dirty fuel filter which causes inconsistent flow of fuel. Check also the engine support and mounts of the engine and transmission. They may be worn out. The jerking could be from the actual **** of the engine because it is not held in place correctly.

Yes on both accounts. TIP: Get them to put in writing they will guarantee their repair for X amount of days, just in case sensor does not fix "jerking" problem or if comes back.

I would check the transmission fluid. It may need changed and the filter changed. Perhaps you are not getting a good spark from your spark plugs or coils. Has it been awhile since you had a tune up?

Tran jerks hard when put in any gear,would a plug that plugs in the air hose cause that?


no, I don't think so.
But, if the engine mounts are loose or worn, jerking can occur.

What make a transmission jerks when you put it in drive


Testing your trans with a scanner will be required as your trans is electronically controlled, you could also have a engine missfire and this could possibly feel like the transmission jerking. Once again testing will a capable scanner will be required to determine any engine electronic faults.
