Well, it looks like you have a little more than you can chew for this one. For one, the fuel pump could be faulty or a loose connection. Check it out. One of the car's sensor or actuator could be mulfunctioning and the best way to know which one is to use a Scanner to scan for the problematic sensor or actuators. If you have a Fault Code Reader, great, otherwise you need to consult a mechanic for the scan and its results.

It appears you may have a bad ignition coil that cuts out after it gets hot. Not uncommon.

I was driving home on the interstate at 70 miles an hour in 5th gear and my car started jerking. why????


The engine has developed a misfire,most likely. Did the check engine light come on or start flashing? If so, find out what codes has set to determine which cylinder is misfiring and then proceed with the repair.

Car giving jerks


One of the more likely possibilities is a problem in the transmission. I wish I could be more specific, but I don't know enough to offer more details.

My 2002 Hyundai Accent goes into 1 gear smoothly, jerks into 2nd and goes into 3rd gear smoothly. Then goes back down into 3rd and 2nd gears smoothly and jerks back into 1st.


CHECK ENGINE light??? Whenever the 'CHECK ENGINE' (Service Engine Soon) light comes on, the ECU (Engine Control Unit) sets a Diagnostic Trouble Code (DTC). These codes identify the particular engine management system which caused the light to come on.
You'll need to use/find an OBDII (On-Board Diagnostic) Scanner to retrieve any code which have been stored in the ECU computer. Afterward, we might be able to help you DIAGNOSE the problem and perhaps eventually fix the problem.

"car jerks/jumps"


These is because of the improper combustion, so you better check the air filter and the exhaust along with that you replace all the spark plugs

2002 Ford Explorer Jerking when in motion


Does the jerking feel like a fish bite ( especially when pulling a hill?) if so it may need plugs and wires

if you have one bad plug wire the problem seems to smooth out at higher speeds

Hope this helps

JERKING


It sounds like your brake rotors are warped (out of round), this would cause a pulsating or **** type feeling when using the brakes. Having the rotors 'cut' (an auto shop puts the rotor on a lathe that cuts the surface perfectly smooth on both sides) should cure this. Check the cost though, rotors are quite inexpensive, and it may be cheaper to just buy new ones. I believe the charge in my area is approx. $18 to cut a rotor. countrycurt0
