If the check engine light is on, take the car to an autoparts store and have them retrieve the fault code(s) from the computer. Most parts stores will do this scan at no charge. Getting the codes will help identify the problem. It could be something like a faulty throttle position sensor or some other problem, but to end speculation, have the codes scanned. Hope this helped and best wishes.

It sounds like it needs a tune up. Plugs, wires, cap, rotter and fuel filter. Do all of these and this should help you get back to driving. Hope this helps. good luck.

All the above problems were happening to my truck, and the engine light never did come on. Finally changed the O2 sensor, and it runs like new again.

My 2007 chrysler 300c crd jerks on acceleration but no lights are showing


If you means you press the gas, then for a second it doesnt move, then it jerks into movement, you need to get your transmission checked. If its not that, It could be electrical or you are just pressing on the gas pedal too hard when you go from a stop.
If you are say, going 30 and accelerate up to 40, and somewhere in between like say 35, it jerks, you have a SERIOUS transmission problem. Take it to a mechanic and expect to pay $$$$.

I have a 2005 volvo xc90 t6 that is jerking when accelerating and in idle. It doesn't so it every time but is steadily increasing and began about 2 weeks ago. Check engine light will blink when on...


A blinking check engine light is the warning of an engine misfire that can cause damage to the catalytic converter. Check car by diagnostic tool and keep car well.

My car has eratic idle and acceleration jerking. It is a 2005 landrover freelander with 52,000 miles. Automatic transmission with a 2.5L engine.


It could be a few things. The EGR, IAC, TP sensor, vacuum leak, MAF sensor, air filter, bad ground to engine. Is the engine light on? If so were any codes retreived from it? What have you done or looked at so far?
