Question about 1999 Ford Taurus

Open Question

My car has been jerking and cutting off for a year now. When it would **** the idle hand would drop down but quickly rise back up as if it wanted to cut off. At first turning on the air conditioner would cause it to drive somewhat better, but after a while it seemed to get worse. I had the fuel injector, vaccuum hoses, and mass air flow sensor replaced but nothing worked.Now it has cut off but will not crank. It seems like it tries but cant turnover.

SOURCE: engine cuts out , does not throw a code

I also have a 2001 Crown Vic that developed a problem similar to this. It would lope and buck at around 40-45 MPH. I too changed the plugs, then changed the coil boots. It still missed. So I bought 1ea. new coil. After changing the new coil with three old ones, the missing stopped.

It could be a lot of things, check the gas cap, vacuum leak, IAC, may need a tune-up ( check plugs, wires, air filter), seizing pulley, timing issue (check CKP sensor and CMP sensor), sticking valves, misfire, Fuel line pressure, or an issue with CAT or muffler.Good luck.

SOURCE: miss fire

Wow, you definitely covered the bases. The next step is to find out whats going on inside the engine. Try doing a compression test, that will tell you if you not only have good rings, but also what condition your valves are in. If the misfire is always in the same cylinder, I would check the cam on that side of the engine, its not outside the realm of possibility you have a worn cam lobe. Just out of curiosity, did the check engine light come on?

SOURCE: My 1998 ford mustang v6 3.8l .. is hard to start

So what you saying is it's hard to start cold right? Something in computer system not allowing excess fuel to injectors when cold. Probably sensor Get auto electrician to sort it out otherwise you end up replacing things that there is nothing wrong with They got the right gear

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.

1995 jeep grand cherokee laredo jerking at 50 mph


which engine? (asked now 1000 times, only 2 ever answered)

tune up time, spark parts, rotor to plugs. filters. both.

its called a 60k mile tune up solves most.

my guess, is its misfiring or

is this the ASD relay dropping out then back in, as driven.

jerked before and after CKP sensor, did you know its the last thing to fail......

see the list of ASD drops.

misfiring, can be felt, its like a misfiring chain saw, ever here a 2 stoke misfire, ratta, tata ,tat?

some call it jerking, its not, is misfiring. (3reasons ) and 25 causes.

but jerkin real, like if you cut the ignition that is and instant bog.

but if you off the key and back on , fast, that be a jerk

that is total power loss. not misfire. its loss spark and fuel.

and jerks hard.

so does loss of 12vdc to the EFI system.

so the first step is to see if its the ASD relay dropping out.

on all jeeps.. 93 to now.



ASD



http://www.fixkick.com/Jeeps/ASD.html



automatic, shut down. (relay and EFI logic)



key point, the ASD will kill the engine, if fit sees spark is bad.

so its a chicken and egg deal.

here is the logic.

key on , crank , ASD closes, fuel injects and engine starts

then dies in seconds. or runs full time.

note that if the ECU sees spark dead, it cuts spark.

Sounds odd , huh. but is NOT.

this relay stops all car fires. (caused by this protection not in place)

Hi, I have an Opel Monza, 1.8 GLE 1987 model with carburetor. When accelerating uphill, it drops revs and wants to cut out or just cuts out and I battle to start it. It also jerks a bit when I drive i


hi Yvette! from what you are describingi think thats the fuel pump that is going to die very soon to your hands.i suggest if your mechanic has a spare one to replace it and make some test runs himself,before he delivers it to you!

Causes car jerk


Car needs to warm up properly so that the automatic choke disengages completely,
After allowing the car to run at idle for a minute or two,
Give the accelerator pedal a quick push to about 1/3 throttle,
Idle speed should drop back to normal running speed and the car drive properly

Do a compression check. It sounds like the valve timing. If the engine has had recent maintenance like tune ups, oil changes etc. the symptoms you describe indicate serious problems.

2003 Expedition jerking/cutting out.


Had same problem: cutting out at low rpm, jerking, a huge clunk or shudder at higher speed (like transmission was going out), and rough idle. All these symptoms were intermittent.

CHECK THE FUEL FILTER!! Changed the fuel filter and thing runs fine!!

PS mine 2003 expedition has 105k
