Buick LeSabre 2000 limited jerks when it shifts into a 2nd gear.

It has an automatic transmission. It does not matter if I accelerate hard or not. It jerks regardless. When it jerks the car also gives a sound.

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 $$$$.

C200 wagon yr 2003 jerks when driven


Hello.

The following are the general instructions on the start of diagnosing any electronically controlled engine or transmission problem.

The engine and the automatic transmission (transmission control is only for automatics, engine is still computer controlled no matter the transmission type) in this vehicle are computer controlled and in most cases when a fault occurs a fault code is stored in the memory of the computer control module. There are exception to this, such as the Mass Airflow Meter and fuel pressure problems. What must be done is to have all the basic testing done such as a scan of the system for fault codes as well as a check with a live data scanner tool for engine functions that are not within range of normal, a trained technician is required to know what is correct and what isn't, then based on careful diagnostics done from a factory repair manual the correct part is replaced or the wiring repaired or the computer replaced (known as the PCM), which is very rarely the problem. Other basic checks must be done as well such as mechanical problems with the engine as well as engine state of tune and mileage on the engine. The transmission can have mechanical issues as well such as no gear engagement at all or a failed pump or other pressure related problems. Also engine mechanical problems ca cause many drive-ability related problem such as rough idle and other symptoms

96 escort 1.9 manual jerking while accelerating 96 escort 1.9 manual


best advice is dont go 40mph in 5th gear... if you are going up a hill at 40mph in 5th gear i have no doubt that it is jerking, your putting too much stress on the engine. shift up to 4th or 3rd you will be fine. 5th gear is an overdrive gear. 55+mph

When let off gas at 50 or more it jerks hard


In order for anyone to help you, you are going to have to tell us the year, model, engine it has, manual transmission or automatic. At that speed, if you hit the accelerator hard does it thump at first?

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?
